AJ loves his Uncle Alvin to bits. He adores his stories, admires his courage and never takes a single word he says for granted.
... Which sometimes aggravates Simon, especially when AJ constantly says "Uncle Alvin said this, Uncle Alvin said that..." Sometimes it's a good thing, especially when Simon goes through a really hard time in life. Alvin tells AJ that he needs to be strong for his Papa, that he should always be a good little boy for him.
Alvin also speaks to AJ as though he was an equal. He never talks down to him, which makes AJ feel three feet taller than the rather small size he is for an eight-year-old chipmunk.
Okay, time for work. May post a Simon and AJ father-son story afterwards. Along with a picture.
