So in love
I am so madly, completely in love with this little man.
This little man, who can be exasperating sometimes to the point of complete and utter exhaustion, is a complete joy to be around.
He has an insatiable appetite for learning new things. He has been sitting back here on my bed for the past 30 minutes, either drawing or writing. He can occupy himself for hours on end.
He puts himself to a task, and he doesn't come off of it until he is 1000 percent bored, or he has completed what he wanted to complete.
The sheer enthusiasm of this child is astounding to me. I wish that I had 10 percent of it.
All things are new to him. He could be bored in school, but he isn't. He views each and every task as an adventure. He never once complains that he is bored (unless he is doing something he doesn't want to do, which is rare). He never once asks me for things to do.
Altough it is a challenge to pick up all of the papers he leaves around this house, those papers are a precious reminder of his gusto for learning.
I am so in love with this little man with whom God so graciously blessed me.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
