These, dear reader, are photographs of my cousin's grandson, Aidan.
Is he my first cousin, twice removed, my second cousin once removed or not a cousin at all?
Aidan is a very bright six year old. His Mother had to move him from one school to another to cope with his hyper-intelligence. Conversely, his sister has also moved, though to the same school as Aidan because of her dyslexia.
Aidan came to visit Mum and I during my stay in Bournemouth. He is obsessed with technology and longed to play with my iPod. Reminding me of myself at his age, he asked me if there were any Dusty Springfield songs on said player or, perhaps, some music to which he could show us the Foxtrot steps he'd been learning at dancing class.
Please, my love, also take note of the stuffed toy he's clutching. He's called Dab. Aidan's constant companion. I remember Pandy.
I find myself wondering what and who he'll grow up to be.
