Last Sunday, M took the boys to visit with an old friend, S, whom he’s known for most of his life. S and his wife are expecting a little one soon and wanted to hang with the boys to get some parental experience. Needless to say, the boys had a great time swimming and eating what they were not supposed to eat. They also got to play with Scooby, the dog, and Matthew loves dogs. He matter-of-factly told a neighbor once that he loves puppies and babies.
