Adam's Journey

A Little Heart to Heart

on March 2, 2011

This post is intended just to digress a little from Adam’s treatments and remind us all what a clever, sweet and funny little boy he is. 

Last night was date night for Jon and I.  Luckily we have a great support network in town and don’t usually struggle to find a sitter.  This time, it was Jon’s sister Sharon.  Auntie Sharon is the best.  And it’s not just me saying that; the kids agree whole-heartedly.  To illustrate my point, it was Sharon who put the kids to bed last night and when I heard Emersyn on the monitor this morning she was calling for auntie Sharon.  The look on her face when I walked into the room said it all.  I am a big ‘ol bowl of chopped liver compared to auntie Sharon.  🙂

So last night, in all of her creative wonderfulness, Sharon helped Emersyn make a crown out of tinfoil, stickers and candy sprinkles (GENIUS!).  Of course, Adam wanted to get in on the fun too, so Sharon helped Adam make a crown.  While Emersyn’s crown was more elaborately designed and bejewled with sprinkles, Adam’s was simple and sported a simple red heart sticker in the middle.  I had bought these heart stickers for my Sunday School class on Valentine’s Day.  They’re gel stickers so the whole thing is squishy and sticky (much like those “sticky hands” you used to be able to buy in candy vending machines). 

Adam took a liking to the squishy gel hearts and started carrying several around in his hand.  I believe he even took them in the bath with him.  Later on, Auntie Sharon took one of the gel hearts and pulled up his pajama shirt and stuck it on his chest where his real heart would be.  “See Adam, this is where your heart is.”  She pressed on the sticker and said “Beat, beat…Beat, beat…”

Sharon left Adam upstairs to go put Emersyn to bed.  When she came back, she discovered that Adam had piled ALL of the heart stickers on his chest underneath his pajama shirt.   🙂 

Apparently, Adam is a collector of hearts.  If you leave your heart unguarded, I’m pretty sure he’ll steal yours too.
