"Please, Mom, can you ask Warren to put Nicholas on my back?"

A couple of weeks ago, Gerard and Warren had just finished serving at the 10:30 Sunday Mass at Mary, Star of the Sea, and Warren ran to Nicholas--and Nicholas ran to Warren. Actually, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Nicholas' legs. The reason why he falls down so often is a problem with balance due to his c.p. The twins try to spare him the bad memories that the use of his walker brings back to him. Those memories go back to his first seven years of life in Haiti, where the other kids at the orphanage used to make fun of him because of his walker.

Gerard and Warren are always ready and willing to carry Nicholas. No matter how much taller Nicholas grows almost by the day, the twins still enjoy carrying him around. It is not that they do it when there is no other way out. They reeeeeally want to do it. This can be summarized in Gerard's request to me, while Warren kept on keeping Nicholas: "Please, Mom, can you ask Warren to put Nicholas on my back?"
