Is that the sweetest little neck you've ever seen?
It belongs to my nephew MBL.
I never know, when I get to see him, if I will be welcomed as Super Auntie...or if he will ignore my very presence, not so much as a sneer coming my way.
This trip, I was apparently invisible.
But because I was invisible to MBL this time, I got to stalk him a bit. I love watching the interaction with he and his mother. He asks deep questions. She gives deep answers. He is her youngest and they have such a sweet bond.
He keeps me on pins and needles, this little man. I never know if I will be his favorite person, if I can buy his affection with expensive out-of-season blueberries, or if his disdain will be palpable.
