More Life..

I'm in a talkative mood tonight, so why not post on my blog?

My baby, my firstborn son who makes me want to pull my hair out more often than not, is getting ready to complete the first grade. He's so damn smart it scares me at times. They started Accelerated Reader the last nine weeks of school, and we got his assessment the other day. Our boy reads at the level of a 2nd grader who's been in school for 7 months. I am so proud of him. Parent/Teacher conferences went well. He's polite, respectful and a bit of a perfectionist at school who sometimes talks too much. Wonder who he gets that from? *lost look*

Of course, here at home, we get the child who is quick to recognize loopholes in rules we give him and is resistant to most forms of discipline. And that wonderful high-pitched whine when he doesn't want to do something. I am NOT claiming responsibility for that one! *lol*

His daddy's 30th birthday is tomorrow, and Jeffrey said the sweetest thing at Target today. He told me that his daddy already had the best present. It was free, and he has it every day. When I asked him what he meant, he said very simply, "Us." And how true is that?

So very often, I get caught up in the ins and outs of day to day life that I forget the big picture. Jeff's got it right. Family. Friends. Appreciating one another for the unique gifts we each bring to the table.

I'm blessed. And I try to remember to thank God every day for the good things in my life.

I know it didn't seem like it at the time, but you four ARE the best birthday present I could ever have. I am sorry I was in a foul mood. I think I've taken care of the root cause of that as you well know. I love you, all of you very much. You are the best present one could ever have.
