Last night I watched my boys as they sat across from each other while eating a homemade mac and cheese dinner. They were having a good conversation. As Vitali was telling Elias an elaborate knife-fighting story, Elias would complete the story by repeating words and adding the appropriate sound effects to each knife-fighting battle. It's in these moments I stop what I'm doing and watch. Although my boys are only three and four, I am already seeing their strong brotherhood bond and loyalty to one another. It's a bond that is strengthening each day. And it's a bond that no one could ever replace.
