New Years Eve 2007

Links to this post

Its New Years Eve today. I've spoken with my Christopher and later will give Justin a call. In thinking about Chris, my little boy who I wasn't ready for, I can't help but thank God that I have him. He brought me so much joy. I remember thinking when I found out I was pregnat for him, how can I love another child as much as I love Justin. Little did I know that a mother could love so much. Chris was such a bubbly happy baby. He was always smiling with those beautiful dimples in his chubby little cheeks. He was the perfect baby from the day I brought him home. He slept and ate...and that's basically all he did! He became my roly poly cheerful little cherub. An talk about beautiful. He was a blonde haired, blue eyed, adorable child. He was so easy to love. From day one HE was mommy's boy. He loved to have me take video footage of him. I remember one day in particular he wasn't feeling too well. He was asleep on the couch and I went in with the video camera. I recorded his little soul as he was sleeping, capturing a moment that was so precious. A little later that afternoon after he woke up, he was feeling a bit better and wanted some chicken noodle soup. We went to the kitchen and I turned the tv on while I heated up the soup for him. He was too little to sit on his behind in the chair, so he knelt in the chair when I brought his soup to him. He started to eat his soup, and at about the same time Golden Girls came on the tv. He called out to me in his sweet little voice and said "Mommy! Golden Girls!" It was so precious for me to hear him sound like his self again and slurp on his soup.

My blonde haired, blue eyed boy has grown up to a 21 year old, tall, dark haired, hazel eyed boy. He still has those charming dimples and that breathtaking smile. I still worry about him. Maybe more now that I did then. Becoming an adult can be such a hard thing for children. I only hope I have done the right things, and that my little boy, who is so precious to me still - in every way - can become a man. I hope he can become a responsible person who will take care of himself, be happy, and actually strive to reach his dream.

Christmas Memories

Links to this post

I have so many different memories that I have decided that I need to put them in writing. Today I will start with one of my most favorite memories of all time.

This is a Christmas memory of my children - specifically Justin Michael! Justin was in 1st or 2nd grade when he started to question whether there was a Santa Claus. He was taking a bath one day when he hit me with the question "Mom, does Santa buy Avon?" lol, he caught me by such suprise! I told him Santa got his gifts from everywhere! Well, I had been adamant that the kids were not getting gameboys for Christmas and I decided it was time to put some belief back into my child's life. Both of my children wanted them badly, but I had told them the only way they would get a gameboy would be if Santa brought it for them. Christmas morning came and Justin & Chris started to open their presents. When Justin opened his gameboy - his proclaimation was "There really is a Santa Claus! Even if for just a few more years, I put belief back into my son's life. To see their happiness and joy was the most rewarding present I ever could have had in my entire life. Now they are grown boys and to watch them with their struggles makes me wish they could be little again with no worries in the world.
