Double Digits

My son will be turning ten soon and entering the double digits of life. I know it sounds cliche but it really does only seem like yesterday that he was a newborn baby in his little glass hospital bed and completely dependent on me. Every decision in his life was made by us; his parents. He's growing up on me way too fast! As a Mom, it's crazy when you realize that every minute of everyday that you've spent with your child has made an impression on them. Everything you've said, done and decided will have had an impact on how they are living their lives and how they treat others.
Tomorrow this son of mine, my first born is going to his 'girlfriends' birthday party. I took him out this evening to pick out a gift and was amazed at the thought he put onto this present. As I watched him pick out her card and the heart necklace (heart necklace!!) I wondered to myself how much longer I can still consider him a child; before long he'll be making all decisions on his own. All I can do is hope that we as his parents have influenced him in such a way that he will make the ones that will make us proud. ..And so far so good.

I Don't Eat Animals

My seven year old son has to write a paragraph each week on a different topic. Somehow he always manages to fit some sort of sport into his paragraph or talk about a fun event he went to however much to my surprise (and delight!) he chose the topic of 'Animals' this week; this is what he wrote.

I Know What Fairy Tales Are Because I Have Seen One Before

I found this note that my seven year old wrote amongst some papers I was sorting for the recycling.. Needless to say this one was put in the 'keep' pile. *melting
