February 8, 2001 was a very special day for me, my son, his wife, and many others. It was the day that Sidney was born. Sidney is my first biological grandson and naturally he holds my heart in his hands!
Last week his mom, Amanda, called me about a school field trip coming soon. Siblings are not allowed to go on the trip and since Sidney now has a 7-month-old baby brother named Jonas ("Making Room for Brother" is one of the stories in the book), I thought Amanda wanted me to keep the baby while she went on the field trip. No, Sidney wants Mom to stay home with Jonas and Von-Von to go on the field trip with him! So I guess I'm going to get to ride a big yellow school bus next month!
Happy Birthday, Sidney!
