When I feel like life is too hectic, and I can't sit and focus on one thing, picturing his face helps me find my thoughts. He inspires me to be a better person, to strive for things to make our family better. He inspires me to work on the things in my life I would have never thought of working on before. Patience, redirection, staying calm, and being silly.
When I am having a bad day and he walks up to me with his crayons and counts down "3 - 2 - 1 lift off" it makes me smile.
When he grabs his pots and pans and starts putting things in them, stirs it up and proclaims, "mmm mommy, it's pizza!" I happily "taste" it and tell him how good it is.
When he snuggles me and says "I wub you too" It melts me and I know I've done the right things for him.
Who knew someone so small could make you strive to be a better person?
