(This is a long post - grab a drink--)
There are a few things that I am truly proud of one of them is being a mom. I do fall short a lot of times but for the most part I think I am damn good at being a mom and a cool mom at that.
My little guy as cute as he is
He can be quite the handful. Its maddening most days but he respects me and listens to me and ONLY me...which is nice. We celebrated his birthday today - he turned 7! I mean really where did the time go?
We are close and to be honest it worries me sometimes that he is too much a mama's boy...don't get me wrong...I love all the extra hugs and kisses but sometimes it seems excessive. I know in a few years he wont want to be even near me let alone giving me hugs in public so I should take it all when its available...
I do treasure it all, I just think maybe he should be less into me and more into his dad...I don't know I am just going with the flow
If you know my son then you know he has an evolving case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder...(that's my personal diagnosis) so when he was 3 he took on a serious obsession with Michael Jackson. It was all MJ all the time, the clothes, the music, the videos, the you tube searches all day long and that lasted for 2 1/2 years
then about a year ago he started obsessing over SpongeBob - like videos and music and bedroom make-overs and clothing - ALL over again...he shared that lime light with Roller Coasters - he would look up the coasters online and talk about them constantly!
So he we are; he is 7 and his NEWEST obsession is SUPER MARIO BROS....
He's addicted to the Wii game, he watched people on you tube playing Mario, he had me draw him a shirt with all the characters and now he's collecting the plush dolls & sleeping with them.
I am always helping feed his current addiction and yes I will continue to throughout his life because as his mom I want him to be happy and find joy in his life so I will continue to listen to him talk incessantly about his newest obsession, I will watch his kooky videos, and buying him things to represent his new "thing"
Because he is currently into Super Mario Bros here is the Birthday card I created for him...
It's my first attempt at punch art-not exactly how I envisioned it but it looks cool - I think and he liked it.
Here's is to my crazy family and all our silly quirks.
We had a beautiful weekend celebrating him...
Hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying your families.
