Trenton's homework

Trenton had a writing assignment this week. His topic was: If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things from home would you miss most, and why? Usually, this kid is sooooo not into his writing assignments & will write only 1 or 2 lines...and that's stretching it. Today, I was quite proud and wanted to share his story. Here it is:

If I were stranded on a desert island what three things from home would I miss most and why? I would miss my mom, dad, and my little brother. I would miss them because they are my family and I love them. If I was stranded on an island by myself I would get my phone and call them and wait for them to get a boat and rescue me. If it was supposed to take them five hours and it took them eight hours then I would get my phone back out and call them again and ask what's taking them so long. If they said that they were stranded on another island that is about a mile away then I would get my swim suit on and swim all the way there. -by Trenton

Still a girl!

We went in for another doctor visit & another ultrasound today. We'll have the results of the ultrasound hopefully soon once the doc sees it. For now, we know it's STILL a girl! We were happy to have the reassurance of that. I think Trenton was especially grateful. He told me this morning it couldn't be a boy & he just knew it was a girl...he didn't want another brother!

A real boy...or a man??

Trenton was so excited yesterday when he said, "Mom, I'm finally like a real boy! I have armpit hair!" He tried to show me, but no matter how close I looked, I just couldn't see it. He was rather disappointed & promised that he saw some...even if it was really, really short. Amazing how it's so exciting at this point!

My Hero, My Son

I am so overwhelmed with emotion right now & had to share. Maybe the hormones make that feeling a bit stronger right now, but either way, I'm incredibly grateful. Trenton & I were in the front yard pulling weeds this morning. I was actually feeling pretty good & wanted to get something done before it got too hot. After the rain last night, the weeds came out quite easily. I went to the backyard to throw some weeds in the dumpster. As I was walking back around to the front yard, Trenton came running to me from clear across the yard. At the time I thought I was fine. He said he just felt like he needed to give me a hug. He then looked at me and said, "Mom, are you ok?" I suddenly realized at that very moment how close I was to passing out. He helped me get to the porch to sit down. I could barely make it there even with his help. I can only imagine what would have happened had he not suddenly wanted to give me a hug in the middle of his weed pulling & been right there for me. I know he was inspired to be there at that moment for me. I know I never say it enough, but I love my kids! I am so grateful he listened & followed that feeling.
