All these different "good parenting" sources always tell you things you SHOULD or should NOT tell your child, and they often agree that a child needs to be told that he/she is loved every day, and that they are precious etc etc.
Well, a lot of times, I find myself on the receiving end of this wonderfulness. Every morning you are so delighted to see me, and give me the best hugs all day long. When those little arms stop hugging me tightly around the neck every day, I don't know what I'll do..
AND you are soooo encouraging. I mean, just 2 days ago, we had chili dogs and baked fries for dinner, and you were going, "YUMMMMM, These are the BEST French Fries I have ever had, mommy!!!".
And when we play soccer in the yard, you always tell me, "Good shot!" or "Great Kick!", or something similarly uplifting.
What a blessing you are :)
Continue to be sweet and kind, little boy. You truly are precious.
This was taken back in mid-April, a few days after your hair cut.
I was cooking in the kitchen and you told me that you had also cut off some of your hair.
Apparently I hadn't trimmed your bangs enough, and they were messing with you, and so you took it upon yourself to make some minor improvements.
I looked around the room, and asked where the hair was, as I couldn't see anything on the floor, and you directed me to the trash can. Well, THANK GOODNESS I had kept it long then, and not much damage was done.
