thank you very much, addie. that means a lot to me cominf from a great mom like you. i can only hope my son turns out as yours have.
you onow, i can't take any credit. the little guy is an amazing person. so kany people we meet comment to us that he's a special boy. strangely, 3 totally different people in the past 2 weeks, 2 of them strangers, have commented that he's going to be a mayor someday. i'm not sure if that's a common comment to make about a little kid, but he's got the charm and personality.
one of the people that said it was the cub scout trainer who was teaching him "disability awareness" for his belt loop (the cub scout version of a merit badge). to begin with, i was surprised that he chose to earn that belt loop, and when he was asked why, he said it was because he wanted to be a good citizen and help people who need it most on a daily basis.
i was blown away with his response. he barely can wipe his own butt, and he's concerned for handicapped people. lol.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
