My brother, the turkey
Thanksgiving family portrait (not pictured: Nolan Thomas. In his place, a turkey!)
Nico brought home a drawing he made at school the other day. I'm probably reading too much into it, but I noticed that this was the first family drawing he created that didn't portray me and him standing side by side holding hands. In fact, in this drawing, there is a small, bald creature between me and Nico.
Understanding that Nico has felt a bit displaced since the arrival of his baby brother, I sat down with Nico and asked, "Oh, is this Nolan standing between us?" "Nolan?" Nico responded. "No. That's a turkey!"
