While E was out of school for Thanksgiving Break, he and I took advantage of Mom/Kid bowling at a very cool venue, Pinstripes, in South Barrington. Yes, you'll have to turn your head to see some of the pics, this laptop is too slow to rotate them. We bowled 6 games in 2 hours (E with a purple ball of course) and below is his make-your-own sundae at our lunch out. I always savor my time with my guys one-on-one and E is such an amazing kid and he says the best stuff....here are a few recent ones....
*"Is this how it worked mom? Aiden was in your tummy, Beckham was in Aiden's, Liam was in Beckham's, and Griffin was in Liam's? (so cute)... "Do you really think Griffin could have fit in Liam's tummy?" ;)
*"I am going to have 6,000 children mom...whoa E well you'll have to find a good Mom for them...I'll find you Mom, you are the best at taking care of the babies and me...and even my friends that come over." God love him!
*"Mom (insert brother's name here) said my name. Isn't that just the sweetest?"
I am amazed by his level of patience. We all have our moments, believe me, and who wouldn't? But in the times I expect him to be frustrated or annoyed, he isn't, he is kind and gentle, he cares if his brothers are upset, he loves when they learn new things, he is such a good big brother. From him, and his innocence, I learn a lesson, to slow down, take it in, a just be in the moment, the rest will work itself out and in that moment, it doesn't matter anyway.
