The day had been extremely hectic with all the moving going on. Doug and Jen had come to spend their final week in Montana, at Matt’s and Jess’, before moving to New Mexico. They wanted Boone and Camden to have some extra time together, this separation was going to be hard on them. They were born 17 days apart and more like twin brothers than cousins.
Boone had a new five week old brother, which fascinated both of the older boys. Baby Aiden was making every one know he was hungry and he didn’t intend to wait any longer with his continuous crying. His mother took a baby blanket and sat down in the corner recliner.
Two and half year old Camden watched from across the room. Jen carefully covered herself appropriately since she was going to nurse him. Camden walked slowly across the room a stood next to the recliner.
“Baby Aiden eatin cereal?” he questioned in a quizzical tone.
“No Sweetie,” Jen answered trying to not spur on any further interest.
Camden stood a few seconds, pondering the situation, “What baby Aiden eatin?”
Thinking quickly Jen replied, “He’s eating Mommy cereal.”
Camden looked at her quizzically and asked, “Can I have a sip?”
Jen laughed and reached over to give him a big hug while suggesting his Mommy might want to give him and Bonnie a popsicle.
Camden planted a wet little kiss on Jen’s cheek and wiggled free of the hug only to head for the kitchen hollering, “Mommy, sicle for me and Boonie, Mommy!”
The moment for explanation had passed but it was just a matter of time that a popsicle wouldn’t send them off into another adventure.
