...because home doesn't happen overnight.
02.11.11 / My Big Boy Is 6

Today my older son, Layne, turns 6.  He is a sweet, intelligent, creative and highly inquisitive boy. Just today he asked me what a judge does.  I told him that judges help settle disagreements between people.  He replied, “So, they’re kind of like Moms?”

At times, he can be downright quiet and I can see the wheels turning inside his head.  If you ask him what he wants to do when he’s older, he’ll tell you he wants to work with his Dada and live with his Mama.  Melt.  My.  Heart.  I’m sure that answer will change a little further down the road.  In light of celebrating such a special boy, I hope you don’t mind if I delay the DIY Sliding Barn Door Part II post until later. {Monday at the latest.}  Please forgive me.  Volunteering at a kindergarten Valentine’s party, eating cupcakes, opening a few gifts and watching a movie just sound like fun today!  And the sun is shining.  For the second day in a row.

Happy Birthday Layne!

Doesn’t the time just fly by? You push a baby out and before you know it they are off to school. What a blessing it is and how fortunate we are to be “mom” and watch them grow into themselves before our eyes.

you take all the time you need. they do grow up so fast. i ran across a letter my 15 year old son wrote to me when he was 7 and I was in the hospital. it melted my heart all over again. what I wouldn’t give to have that snuggly little boy who thought his mom was the world here again.
the door can wait.
