I was getting ready one morning and Brennan was roaming the upstairs and enjoying his toy room as usual. Suddenly, I realized that he was being really quiet for longer than usual. I went looking for him and thought of every mom’s greatest nightmare: finding their child writing on the walls in permanent marker or eating crayons. I was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised to find Brennan sitting quietly going through a small bag of toy cars that were hidden away since he was born. The toy cars are very special because these are the cars that Joel played with when he was Brennan’s age. It was such a special moment. I ran and grabbed the camera to capture Brennan’s first time playing with Joel’s childhood toy cars. The cars now have their own special container in the toy room for Brennan to play with whenever he wants. One more reminder to keep the permanent markers out of reach.
