He's an old soul

The other day I was talking to a friend and they said that they thought that Sam was "an old soul." I've never thought of him as such. Funny, yes. Incredibly cute, yes. Curious and adventurous, yes. A royal pain in my arse....at times...yes. But an old soul....no I've never thought of him that way.

Last night we (Brad and Sam) were watching a little ESPN before bed. There was a story about Theo Epstein's "next move" with lots of footage of the Sox. Although we live about forty minutes from Fenway, deep in Red Sox nation, my husband is a New Yorker and a Red Sox hater. Me, I could really give a flying leap...if there was never another baseball game played, I wouldn't be sad, I wouldn't miss it, in fact I might not even notice. Sam, well apparently Sam "loves the Red Sox".

"Daddy, I love the Red Sox. Do you?"

"No!"

"Oh, you like the Ankees?"

"Yeah buddy, I like the Yankees."

"Oh, I see. I don't like the Ankees. I like Red Sox. The Red Sox play in Boston. Yeah, Boston, now that's a beautiful city! Boston, it's got trains and drugstores (I had no idea that he shared his passion for trains with drugstores...) and all kinds of great stuff. It's really beautiful there."

He sounded so serious. So like my grandpa..."Boston, now that's a beautiful city..." I guess maybe he is an old soul.

OH he is so cute!!!! That was the sweetest little story.

My boys like the Red Sox too....because they were in the World Series and that is where Mommy went to school. They were whooping and yelling at the screen watching the game with their Sports freak Daddy....course if the Dodgers had been at the world series things might have looked different at our house.
