I wish I could say that their feelings are positive ones, but they're not. If the word "girls" comes out of their mouth it is usually accompanied by a fantastic eye roll and words like gross, stupid, annoying etc. They don't like girls. At all. And, they have even decided that if I give birth to a female, their world, as they know it, will come to an end. (They got that one right!)
But there is one girl who has managed to make her way into their hearts. To them, she's not a girl. She's Elena. And, they love her. Love, love, love her. She used to babysit for us when we lived in Olathe. Then, to our dismay, she had to grow up and go off to college. We were mad at her. Very mad.
There are just certain people who come into your life, and make you wonder how you ever got along without them. You never want them to leave. You hope that they will always be there, and want to be there. That's how we feel about Elena.
