OK, I got about two seconds to blog about this family which is not nearly going to do them justice. You’ll remember these faces from when I first fell in love with them last year in Charlestown. I cannot say enough good things about them all. Specifically, take note of Anna. She just turned four which means I only have about 14 more years to wait until she’s officially old enough to hang out with me and not feel like it’s creepy. Although by that time I’ll be close to 78, so…Then there’s little Leo who we refer to in our house as “friend Leo” or “Leo #2”. He is in Nico’s class this year and I’m so grateful that he has such a nice little friend to have for the rest of his life, because like it or not, boys, you’re going to be besties. Then there’s Walter who needs to be my business manager. And more than that, he is an angel for letting Kari and I be indecisive and chatty and (I’ll throw this in just because) annoying. And he pretends like he doesn’t mind. And lastly I need to talk about Kari who has become such a good friend and is a really special person. I wish I had more time to talk about her and how wonderful I think she is but I’ll just leave you with a few examples:
1. We talked about how confused I was by Trader Joe’s and everyone’s obsession with it, and she dropped off bags of TJ items for me to try so I could understand the craze (and totally got me addicted to their fig crackers mixed with goat cheese!)
2. She knew I had a friend in need and brought over bags full of clothes without being asked.
3. She saw my post about how I lose my keys and bought me a Tile so I’d be able to find them (now I just have to activate that sucker…wherever it is;)
She is one of those understated people that do things without being asked and because they want to, not to gain any recognition. And i think that is AMAZING of her. So I am recognizing her on this blog—which you know only my mom will probably read—to let her know that her kindness has not gone unnoticed in the Bruno household. We LOVE you and think you are doing an amazing job of being a mom and human.
