A few weeks ago, I mentioned how my nephew was mildly obsessed with death. I, being stupid, told him my car was named after Marquis de Lafayette, because of course that is a totally badass name. Calvin was entranced and appalled. It really was strange.
Today, I received a very early call from my mother. Cal and Daphne are staying with her for the week while Lisa is in Vegas. This helped Eric so he could work normal hours. Well this call shocked me and almost sent me to the floor laughing. "Victoria, you need to FaceTime Calvin sometime today and explain to him about the bad day Lafayette had and why he was so sad." For the record, he didn't buy my save last time when I said he died from sadness when he had a premonition Justin Bieber would be born one day.
Children have incredible brains. I was lucky to remember where I hid my toys at his age. He is mourning Revolutionary war heroes. Calvin may be my hero.
