Big Brother program

When I graduated from high school I joined the Big Brothers program. The basic premise was to spend a few hours each week hanging out having fun with a kid who didn't have a dad or a good male role model in his life. I went to ballgames, played hoops and even taught my little brother to shave.

As a side note, my little brother went on to study medicine at Northwestern and is now an ER surgeon. Color me proud.

Twenty years later, I'm bringing the program back with Max. With Sam now home, healthy and a week old, I want to make sure Max still knows he's loved. A trip today to eat donuts, ride the Monorail and play at Seattle Center seemed to do the trick. Max has been terrific since baby came home yesterday.
