Crazy Socks

You are my little crazy monkeys in crazy socks for crazy sock day at school.  I think you pulled them off like rockstars.

Time Out

You were in trouble.  I'm not even real sure why.  I came to check on you and had my camera in my hand.  You said, "Mom!  Please don't take a "selfie" of me!"...and I couldn't stop laughing.  You put the Ninja Turtle between you and the camera....and then of course I had to get a picture of you.  You always say the right things and win your way right out of trouble.  I love you more than darth vader and ninja turtles and that is a lot of loving my sweet Rustin!

Saturday Mornings

Gran and Grandaddy's house on a Saturday morning means we get to stop in Ennis for yummy doughnuts.  The best way to start the weekend is with you two...doing something you love.  I love you more than pink donuts and sprinkles and that is a LOT of loving!

Vegetables aren't the only way to Heaven...

I have the most amazing son.  He truly is.  Today he told me he prayed for me.  He said, "I prayed for you all day, Mommy.  I asked God to make your day awesome and happy." I paused before responding he said, "Do you think people who don't like vegetables go to long as they believe in the Holy Spirit?".  I answered, "Yes.  I do.".

We read a book together and then I tucked him into bed and snuck away to my own bed.  Not long after I was settled in, he was at the foot of my bed.  He asked if I would lay in his bed with him for a little bit.  I agreed that I would and just as we got under the covers he said, "Do you remember when you used to sing me lullabies as I fell asleep?".  I said, "Yes, I do.".  He said, "Do you think you could sing them tonight?".  I haven't sung them to him in years, but I obliged.  I asked which one he wanted first and he said he didn't care.  So I sang...I sang them all and he fell asleep in my arms.  

My 7-year old boy who wants to be 17 most days; who only wants to walk into school by himself; who feeds the dog and handles all of the household trash duties; who gets himself showered and dressed all on his own; who fixes his own snacks; who shows me how to work the TV/Netflix/Video consoles and who probably knows more about my computer than I do...was my baby boy again tonight.

Ryder...tonight you reminded me that my baby always you'll be.  I love you more than you don't like vegetables and that my love monkey is a lot of loving!

Playing Office

Ryder- This is your office for the moment.  You set it all up with my old laptop, your great grandma's telephone and a pair of headphones.  I am not sure how all the pieces tie together, but I love to watch you look out the window as you make computer inputs and take "phone calls".  You are magical in so many ways and I'm so glad you are mine.
