Hey looky here, we made it to the end! Okay so I guess I should finish the post first before I get too excited. I did combine the last part of the alphabet as I feel like doing each letter individually was taking too much out of me. I had these grand plans of spending my mornings working on the posts, but well…you know what has happened the month of April.
I plan on keeping this post light and fun (hence the title). The best part about going through the lessons from my son was that I learned a lot about myself and my resiliency. When things get tough I can push through them and good things can still happen even when there is darkness.
I do actually have something planned for these last three letters, first being X. I did cheat a little and I’m using the word eXamine. Something my son is good at is saying exactly what he means. For him the phrase “Say what you mean and mean what you say” is equivilant to examining what you say versus what you do. I’ve been told he is a rather precocious child as his ability to tell you exactly what he wants and how he is going to get it is not expected at his age. When I was his age I was a lot more wishy-washy when it came to making decisions.
For the letter Y, I chose the word youthful. My son definitely keeps me on my toes and reminds me to have a good time. He loves to go on adventures and try new things, and he tells me and S that he wants us along with him. I hope that it stays that way for a long time. Even though he doesn’t know it he gives me that spark and makes me feel young.
Drumroll please…the last letter and the last word is zaniness. One of the best things about having a kid is the excuse to watch cartoons with him. He has adopted my dvd collections and loves Scooby Doo and Animaniacs. It was the Animaniacs that he learned the word zany. Leave it to my kid to be drawn to the words that are not used as much. He is definitely a zany kid and I love being his mom. I couldn’t have asked for a more sweet, caring, and all around squishable kiddo. He stole my heart the day he was born and I’m perfectly fine with never getting it back.
My theme for this year’s meme is ‘Lessons my son has taught me’. No matter our age we are never to old to learn something about ourselves. To read what other’s have written please click here.
