Grant, the anti-Ethan
I remember before I gave birth to my second son that I just could not fathom what he could possibly be like. I didn’t have a grid for another boy. Ethan seemed to me the epitome of boyness, so what would another boy possibly be like?
Then came Grant, who is most certainly all-boy, but since birth, I’ve called him the anti-Ethan. They are opposites on nearly everything, from personality and personal habits to preferences: food, clothing, friends, music… At dinner, Ethan’s favorite thing will be Grant’s least-favorite, and vice versa. The things Grant struggles with, Ethan finds easy, and vice versa.
The other day, Grant asked me for a buzz-cut. This morning, I finally granted his wish. I should have taken a “before” pic, because his hair was pretty shaggy. I did, however, take an “after” pic, seen here with Ethan, whose hair is, well, pretty much the opposite of Grant’s. (Ethan is 10.5yo, and Grant is 8yo.)
