Last week, the children were once again playing with the pillows, but this time when Evelyn picked up the "Davis" pillow, Ewan very seriously interrupted her.
"Evelyn, be careful with that pillow," he cautioned, "it is very special to us."
It was one of those moments when the adult has to turn away so the child doesn't see their smile. The part that tickled me the most was the "to us." He didn't say it was special to Grannie Frannie or to Granddaddy, but to "us." His authoritative tone made the statement seem even more important.
