There are some days where I need to remind myself how much laughter the cute little blonde boy brings me. These are the days when laughter is needed to ward off the tears. I will agree wholeheartedly that he’s funny, but he is also very strong-willed and challenging. My comment to most people who giggle at his quirks is to say, "If he was my first...he would have been my last!" I don't know if I am just getting too old to keep up or what, but this child is a ball of energy with wheels that don't stop turning in his brain. But I am thankful God blessed me with him four years ago.
Today I am linking up with all the cool people who post Top Ten lists. My contribution? Top Ten reasons to be a mom to a challenging boy!
He does silly (and sometimes gross) things with his food. He is creative.
He thinks he is pretty cool. He is confident.
He wants to be just like his big brother. He is proud.
He gets mad when you try to sing to him…remind me to tell you the Bob Evans birthday story someday. He is funny!
He can pull off the hat look. He is chic.
How can you not laugh?? He is uninhibited.
He can be considered an angel…of sorts.
He’s my “super helper" in the kitchen, in the laundry room, and in the yard. He has a servant's heart.
He has a love of learning just like his mama.He is intuitive (unlike his mama).
Sometimes he sleeps. He is peaceful.
There are so many good things about this little guy that I must focus on - like his huge heart, incredible smile, and creative genius. He has a precious faith that I pray will grow strong and I thank God for giving us joy packaged in 40 pounds of giggles...and growing.
What things do you love about your child?
Keepin' it Real...D
