10 Things I’ve Learned from My Spirited Boy (Happy Mother’s Day)

Ten things I’ve learned from my “spirited” boy:

  1. Always check the oven and garbage disposal before turning them on.
  2. 30 seconds in a row is a long time.
  3. Silence is a warning signal – run quickly to the last place you saw the boy.
  4. Anything can become a step up, including the oven door, a cooler, a cardboard box, and the potty chair.
  5. It’s not that hard to learn how to open doors and turn on the bathtub faucet.
  6. Everything is interesting and cool.
  7. A smile goes a long way.
  8. There is always time for another walk, a story, or a tickle attack.
  9. Teaching is the same thing as learning.
  10. I am the luckiest mom in the world.

To everyone who has a mother’s heart (whether your children are  a twinkle in your eye, are here on Earth or in Heaven, are from another mother, have 2 or 4 legs, or are in the hospital or at home), and to everyone who is missing their mom or wishes they were a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.
