Charlene has this oversized handmade cane which is painted with red and white stripes to look like a candy cane. Our three year old grandson, Tristan, loves this thing and every time he’s at our house, he’ll pick it up and inspects it very carefully and sometimes carries it around the house. He’s obsessed with the thing, ignoring all other Christmas bric-a-brac.
At Tristan's home last Saturday a lamp fell over and landed on Tristan’s foot. He cried so hard he quit breathing. After he got control of himself he told his mother that “We’ll have to go to Mimi and Papa’s and get the candy cane to help me walk.”
