The next image is a rainy day. On our way to lunch with my brother and his family, we’re caught in a torrential downpour. Todd scoops up 2-year old Theo and dashes for the restaurant. I’m right behind, but in just two seconds we are all drenched to the bone. As we enter the restaurant, Theo wraps his arms around Todd’s neck and says, “I love you Todd.” I’m not sure if it’s rain or tears on my face. Click.
Todd still “talks comics” with Will and he still protects Theo. But he also has deep conversations with serious Claire and makes “poop” jokes with mischievous Nate. I already know that Todd is kind and funny, but it’s nice to catch him in those moments.
