::Apparently Warren is already penning an autobiography. I'll admit, I was a little nervous to see what was behind the title page::
::In case you wondered what it looks like to go Christmas shopping with 4 kids on December 18th for their Daddy::
::Luke is 7 months old. He is perfect and I absolutely love his one syllable laugh and the way he needs me. The hormone that tells me my baby is the best in the world is in full tilt. But for the record he really is the best one. Really::
::He looks like me! I'll have to fish out some baby pictures from 1980 to prove it, but I can see it so clearly. He looks like me! Lucky dog::
The events in CT last week are heavy on our hearts. We can't talk about it much because Jack and Nolan are not old enough to comprehend that kind of information or sorrow, but Warren knows everything. He wouldn't go to school on Monday, so I picked him up and emailed his principal. Since then, Warren has been "speaking" to the school psychologist (she says he won't actually talk about it but they play games in her office and he likes to go visit her). I can't imagine really what that information meant to an 8 year old who previously thought nothing bad could ever happen like that. It certainly rocked his world and took some of his innocence. But, I am so glad to have my boy with his damaged innocence in the wake of what those poor parents in CT lost. This IS the world we live in. Bad things do happen. We can't live our lives in fear though. I, like a lot of people, have my own theories on why there seems to be such an increase of these angry detached young men capable of such horrific things, but I hardly see any point in sharing. There is enough negativity and vitriol in the world. What we need is to focus more on good things right now, and give our boys the gift of being able to seek out and give attention to good. Foster the good in themselves, others, and their surroundings. So, this new "thing" is just too perfect. We will do this at least monthly though, not yearly. I can't wait to get the conversation going about good.
