It's been six years of smiles, laughter, hugs and kisses. It's been six years of booboos, crazy antics and questionable choices (mostly from him...). Six years filled with cuddles, pride, love and growth.
Six years just isn't enough. I'm a demanding Mama...I want many more years to come with this sweet boy.
We spent the day on a field trip to the high school FFA plot, celebrating Oren and Dr. Seuss' birthday, and running and playing with jet packs at a space-themed birthday party at our house last night. It was an awesome day for an awesome kid.
And since I could go on and on, I'll just give six things about Oren at six:
1. He is a "reading fool!" He told his teacher that this week. ;) Reading has finally clicked and he's reading everything in sight, from text on commercials to billboards to every paper that passes him by. Best of all--he loves it and that makes me happy!
|I have turned this as many times as I'm turning it...sorry for the sideways picture...blame Blogger!|
2. Oren is universally liked. Kids are drawn to him, adults adore him. I'm not bragging on my sweet boy, I"m stating a fact. He is so good-natured and so kind. Wouldn't the world be better if we were all more like that.
4. Right now, Oren likes planes, dinosaurs, Star Wars, Swiss cheese, Transformers, Monster Trucks, anything involving a gun, reading, Swamp People, his sister and his Daddy and Mama. Lucky for me, he LOVES his Mama. :)
6. He gets embarrassed easily for someone who is so easy-going. If you even mention girls in that way (you know like girlfriend kind of way) he goes red in the face and won't talk to you. He got a little embarrassed for his friends to sing to him last night. He is his Daddy's son...
Oren, you are a balm to my soul with your big heart. You are my sunshine every day, not just when skies are gray. Keep being you, buddy. You make this proud Mama awful happy!
