A Sanfilippo Story by Grammy L…
My daughter-in-law, Jennifer has a Facebook page entitled Oliver’s Tomorrow. I invite you to connect with her on Facebook.
On January 14th she posted this:
This past week has been emotional.
Oliver’s school celebrated ‘100 days of school’ – a popular tradition in schools right now. Part of that tradition is an age-processed photo of the children.
How I would love to see Oliver, an old, wrinkled-faced man.
When Oliver was 2.5 years, we listened to “A is for Apple” and “The Animals Sounds Song” in an endless loop. We would dance and sing and run around the room, and get especially silly when Grammy L was visiting.
Out of the blue, he’s been asking to play these songs again. He observes, with that sweet Oliver smile, and let’s Reagan and I do the singing and dancing these days.
Ahh, yes! We were silly! Oliver and I snorted and mooed, acted like animals, and twirled and danced. All of the dance moves were choreographed by Oliver! My favorite move was running to the wall in the living room, slapping the wall, and returning to “our spot” as we anticipated the next verse.
