I expect Sam to have freckles, for a number of reasons.
- He is a redhead.
- I have freckles.
- Will has freckles.
- My mom, whose coloring Sam inherited, has freckles.
I have been patiently waiting for this summer, which is approximately when I estimate freckles might start to show up. (When I say “patiently” you need to know that I mean “asking everyone I know if freckles ever show up before three years.”)
Yesterday I found three freckles. One on each forearm and one on his knee. He also has a spot on his nose but I am not counting it yet because it might be dirt. (Yes, it is still there today, and yes, that could mean it is not dirt, since he had a bath last night and all, but I am not counting on it. Let us not forget that he is a three-year-old boy.)
Freckles! I may be disproportionately excited about this.
