Thankful For Mommy

I could just eat Booker up these days. He loves his mom. How much better can it get? Other than the fact he has been expressing how much he loves me.

Yesterday he picked up his room and then went downstairs while I vacuumed. When he came back up he went to his room and came out and said, "Mom, I just love you so much. The most in the whole world!" I asked him why and he said, "Because you cleaned my room just right."

This morning I made waffles for breakfast. He ate 5 of them and then said, "Mom, I love you, thank you for the best waffles." I said your welcome, and he said, "My pleasure."

I also love the fact that he will hug and kiss me in front of all his friends at school. Some days he even turns around when I'm leaving and yells across the room, "I LOVE YOU MOM." I dread the day when that isn't cool anymore because it just makes my heart sing!

It's Still Christmas

Tonight was Tots N Tales Christmas Program. It was dedicated to Regan, a little girl in Booker's class that turned 5 yesterday. A little girl that found out she has cancer 2 months ago. A little girl that has to go through 48 weeks of chemo and radiation. A sweet little girl of a mom and a dad. A big sister. A friend and classmate. And while her class sang their songs, she sat on the steps of the stage, and happily watched them. She was so precious, words can't even explain it. She was in her Christmas dress and her Santa hat, just watching. And then, at the end of the program, it was her turn. She got up on stage and asked if she could sing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. And, with the mic in her hand, she did. And everyone joined her. And I cried. Because to that 5-year old little girl, it is still Christmas, and she is still going to celebrate. God Bless you Regan!

Mrs. Jada Feezell

I found out yesterday that Booker is going to marry Jada... and the conversation went like this:

Booker - "Mom, I'm going to marry Jada. You know, the girl from my class?"

Me (not having a clue who Jada is) - "Oh yeah, do you like her?"

Booker - "Yeah... I think. I danced with her."

Nuf said.
