Something that made you smile
this last week.(Close enough, right?)
I try not to be one of those moms... you know the ones. The ones who think little Johnny is the smartest/brightest/cutest/bestest kid in the whole darn world and who think that YOU need to think that too.
But here's the truth: My boys whine. They smell weird sometimes (ok, a lot of the time). They don't always follow directions on the first (or second, or third, or fourth) time they are asked. They're messy. Neither one has one single iota of musical ability. Zack has weird ugly feet and Cooper will probably be bald before he's 25.
And until about a year or so ago, I would have said that Zachary was the clumsiest kid in the entire world.
But then something happened that changed all that.
The changes have been gradual - so gradual in fact that I'm not sure I realized just how far he has come until this week.
This past week R took him to a practice session where he got to put a lot of his knowledge and skills to the test. I usually try to go to all these special things, but this time I stayed home since I'm still having some eye issues and I just wanted to rest.
R texted me a video of Zachary doing his board breaking routine, and to be honest, I watched it, then watched again and again before I really understood that this confident, graceful, athletic kid was MY kid.
I've watched this video over and over, and over again, and every time it makes me smile.
That's MY kid. And he's awesome.
