My kids form attachments to people in the strangest ways. Wednesday we had an electrician at the house for a few hours fixing some stuff our buyers requested. For some reason (maybe the tools?) my boys took an instant liking to Frank and spent about an hour and a half following him around the house and copying his every move as best they could. James strapped on his Sesame Street tool belt and Sam grabbed his tool box as they peppered Frank with questions.
Sam: "Hey, do you have one of these?" (holding up a hammer)
Frank: "Yep." (trying not to crack up)
Sam: "Where is it?"
Frank: "In my truck."
Then either Sam or James would repeat the same series of questions holding up each of their tools one at a time. I was in the other room laughing my head off! Samuel had the best comment of all, "Hey, did you know my dad fixes things too?"
While Frank was out at his truck getting something the boys shared their enthusiasm with me. "Mom, I love him! I want to be just like him."
