i obviously have an issue knowing what day it is.
today, i am thankful for ellis.
the little ginger that made me a mom, that teaches me everyday what love is. that helps me learn selflessnes in a whole new shocking way- there isn't room to be selfish when you have a baby, kid, teen, adult child. from waking up early, having a little octopus stuck to your legs all day, remembering to feed him and not yourself, never getting a minute to yourself unless he is sleeping, thinking about his welfare before your own. it is astonishing, really.
he is the sweetest, funniest little boy.
i don't know how i'll be able to give him away.
to nursery at church at 18 months
do driving and dating at 17
to a mission
to a wife.
i am so glad he will always be mine. i guess i will share him a little, here and there.
