My little guy made this picture of our family at preschool last week and it sums up everything I am thankful for this holiday season. Madelyn and I are crafted out of purple construction paper. Bryan is blue and Evan is tan. I love that he picked pink for his house. He marches to the beat of his own drummer and went with the color he liked—even if most of the boys’ houses were blue.
Thank you, my little guy, for bringing home this picture and making my day. Thank you for letting me experience the wonders of life through you all over again. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, the first snowfall of the season and Christmas morning all come alive for me more now than they ever have. Puddles hold new magic, and I’ve never had more fun jumping over cracks in the sidewalk. You bring out the small joys in each day that grown ups take for granted all too often. I’m so grateful for our little family and all the laughter you’ve brought into my life. You are a great kid and I am so happy you are mine.
