It was chilly enough for a hat & cloudy enough for a quick picture this morning bf we left for school. This guy is my oldest. I love him dearly. He makes me crazy but really he is so great. He is your typical, not so typical 5 (almost 6) yr old. I expect a lot from him. I'm hard on him, I know I am. But I love him dearly so I make a point to tell him often how great he is & what a big help he is around the house. The other day he was getting a stern talking to the whole way to school. I was so frustrated w his attitude & wanted to make sure he knew it. Once we got to school I said to him, I love you. He waited. But? he said. There were lots of things I could have added in to really drive my point home but instead I said, That's it. No buts. I just love you, period. I have to remind myself he's only a little boy & little boys act like little boys. Man, there are days I just don't know what to do w him. More often there are days I don't know what I'd do without him.
