my son-shine

Yes, that’s cookie dough. Yes, he said “Merry Christmas.” We do things a little a lot different around here. We like it that way. Sometimes I still feel like my chest will burst open with an old faithful effect of love spurting out. I fall in a little deeper when he closes our prayers with, “A-mint.” And then mid car chasing and dinosaurs drop over for a butterfly kiss. When he’s asleep I sneak over and whisper my apologies. I ask for forgiveness if I lost my patience or sometimes I just pray that God would show me how to be the best Mom that I can be. We just got news from the Guild school that Otto can enroll as of May 4th as a peer model for their pre-school class. Since April 1st we’ve said good-bye to diapers, to our crib and now we’re on to school!? I’m clapping and cheering him on while simultaneously pouting. He’s my baby. He’s where it all started. I’ll leave you with a line from one of our favorite books. “Everyday with you is special I love you through and through, I udderly udderly love you and I know you love me too.” These are cows talking! I love this life I get to live. I’m gonna go out and do some dancing!

  1. I haven’t commented in a while, it’s not that I’m not following you (stalking) lol..
    I love your life, I love your happiness shining through your posts, I love your spirit, I love your honesty, but most of all, I really just love you….I’ve known you for almost 3 years, watched you grow and change and the thing that stands out the most for me is the first time I heard you speak from the heart….You’re an incredible woman and you’re changing so fast. I’m in awe of you, just like you’re in awe of Otto. I believe now more than ever, God brought you to me so I could learn that “Grace” Janet always said I could have, she knew you were special and could change my life, she told me so many times. Thank you for all you do that you’re unaware of…..It’s a privilege to share your life and I will never take it for granted again. God bless you and that beautiful family. Hugs!!!!
