i have a nephew that was adopted as a brother because my step-sister was too young when she had him. when i was 6 he was born, and thats about the time my dad got custody of us so we went to live with him and his new wife, my stepsister and baby ronnie.
as a toddler he and i were tight. i was the one two taught him to walk and talk, i was the only one that could really understand him too. mind you i was between 6 and 10 at this time.
well he grew up and became a super nasty brat, due to some maltreatment. hes 18 now, dropped out of school and freeloads a lot. hes a bit mixed up but his intentions arent bad.
the thing is, logan is my baby, he is three years old now. in my dreams logan is always ronnie. i have mixed up their names a bunch, the most recent was logan making some pounding while i was still asleep-we get noise complaints so i try to act quickly when this happens. i was still a bit disoriented and yelled "ronnie knock it off"
its almost like my subconsious relates the two. its so odd because that was soooo long ago, i was so young and so different, and he has grown up and is nothing like logan at all (or nothing like i hope logan to be).
why do i relate them?
