I am so lucky to have this kid as my child! He is such a neat kid. Today he was mowing and he came to the garage door and yelled for me. When I went out he said, "Stand back Mom". I moved back and a tiny frog, no bigger than a dime, jumped from his hand. "I found it in a wet spot on the lawn while I was mowing and wanted you to see it." Isn't that the best? I love it that he knows how much I love living things and wants to share them with me. He carefully picked the TINY frog back up and set him back in his damp spot. Too cool.
The other day he was taking Shadow for a walk and came running home with something in a box. It was a perfect bird's nest made out of a lot of mud and "stuff". He had found it abandoned and lying in the grass and knew I'd love it. Nothing makes my heart happier than when I think that my child was thinking about how he could share something that special with his Mom. It makes me feel that in all the wrong I'm sure I've done with my kids...I must have done a couple of right things too.
