Lots of posts about Avery, so here’s one about his twin brother Bennett. Bennett is learning words, and like most little kids, sometimes he gets it wrong. For example:
Swirsty = thristy
Cramps = crayons
Pinata = blahblahblah
Green = blue
Knife = fork (this is perhaps the most confusing one.)
Avery = A.E.
This last one, calling Avery “A.E.”, has caught on like other, more famous nicknames. In our little world, A. E. is the P. Diddy or J. Lo. of children; Grandmas, Grandpas, Mommy, Daddy, Carter, Avery’s PT, his social worker, his little friends, everyone calls Avery “A.E.”
Until yesterday. Bennett came up to me and said, clearly and cleanly, “Avery is bugging me.”
Sigh. My little boy is growing up.
