When Sophie is in her dance class, Michael plays with a group of boys we moms have declared the Ballet Brothers. It started with Michael bringing his Detroit Tiger's backpack full of Matchbox cars to the first class and has developed into a group of buddies sprawled around with dinosaurs and diggers. Michael and one little boy trade cars every week and usually remember to bring them back. It's been a cool little way for Michael to exercise responsibility and patience. He hasn't forgotten a car yet but has been very understanding when his pal misses a week or two. Tonight I let them take some pictures with my phone, and they let me take this one.
