Having a little boy is like no other experience in the world. Maybe I am biased but I am sure that little boys are something so special to their mommies. I hope to experience a little girl too but right now this boy has completely stole my heart and I cannot imagine loving another little one like I love him. He makes me laugh and cry in the same minute and I cannot believe how smart and loving to other people; strangers he is. I am just so proud of him and want to give him so much. I hope I am giving him the tools to be a strong, loving, smart and faithful man.
But some days are harder than others and I get down on myself like most mom's do. When he gets into stuff or messes something up I try to hold in my anger or disappointment but that doesn't always happen. I try to remember that whatever you say and do around little ones they learn from and take with them. I just hope Brent and I are setting good examples most days and the other days he will learn that no-one is perfect not even mommy and daddy and he doesn't have to be perfect either.
On the way to school this morning I had "one of those hit you like a ton of bricks" moments. I usually turn the radio up and we just ride to school, he isn't a morning kid and is usually tired and doesn't say much and I just need to hear music to get my day going so that works for us. But today he started talking about half way there so I turned the music down and we talked the whole way there. I told him I love him and I am so proud of him and that he is so smart. He smiled and said "I love you too mommy" and "your so sweet mommy" when I told him he was sweet.
Then he tells me "I'm gonna save the rest of my pop tart for Jossy" I kid you not I thought O my word. "She likes pop tarts" he says. He is his daddy's boy, and that truly scares me!
Lucas scored him a George jacket this weekend. I have said it before and I will say it again I'm sure in my child rearing years. I hate "character" clothes. The Paul Frank monkey is about all I can handle but when I spotted this "George" jacket for a dollar at the kids sale I knew Lucas would go crazy over it. I have a hilarious story about George and Luke, it wouldn't be the same telling it on here but ask me sometime ;)
