Our day care provider is friends with her neigherbor Clyde. Clyde is 93-ish, but very spry, and just loves all of the kids. Well before she had the day care, Clyde "adopted" Claudia's boys as his own psuedo grandkids, as he and his now-deceased wife never had kids of their own. Clyde just thinks Alex is as special as the come. Alex lights up when Clyde walks in the room, and immediately crawls to him.
When we had our chicken pox scare, poor Clyde had to stay away from the kids for an entire month, as he has never had the chicken pox and it would have killed a man his age. It made Clyde so sad. I am glad I was finally able to snap a picture of them together!
