Throwback Post: What Time Did You Go To Bed

**THROWBACK POST**

October 3 2013:

Thomas asked me earlier what time I went to bed last night. I told him and we went about our business. A little bit later he came over and helped me wash the dishes and then cleaned the stove and told me he wanted to help so I could go to bed earlier …. I am blessed times 500 million and beyond that I get to be this little person’s Mama!! xoxo

I so much LOVE seeing him embrace all the GOOD that life has to offer and my wish is that he continues to do so and never loses sight of it.

Throwback Post: You Look So Young

**THROWBACK POST**

October 15 2013:

October 15 2013: Thomas says to me, “You look so young for your age” .. I tell him excitedly, “Thank you Thomas so much”. He asked me why I was thanking him and I told him that was a compliment. He said he didn’t know that …. He just wanted to tell me just because. Pure innocence and honesty … LOVE!

Went to go to bed. Thomas. You crack me up with your randomness.

He has sensory issues, first of all, and has really thick hair. And, does not like nails or hair … anything that requires maintenance! Why do we have to have hair and nails???? He’s serious, too!

Thomas randomness. Found on the kitchen table: One red, squishy octopus. I’m so blessed by Thomas. He brings laughter every single day!

Throwback Post – Sweet Dreams Spell and Can I Clean the Stove

**THROWBACK POST**

May 29 2013:

Sweet Dreams Spell from the book “A Little Fairy Princess Magic” … Read to Lillian just about every night for about the past 2 years …

“Faires, as I rest in bed, bring sweet dreams into my head, keep me safe and guard the door, bring tales of happiness forever more. As I close my eyes and fall asleep, bring magical memories for me to keep. Fairies, as I rest in bed bring sweet dreams into my head.”

Sweet dreams to all y’all tonight. Gonna review my talk for tomorrow to a group of UNR undergrad med students from a parent’s perspective (of being parent to a child with special needs) and then I’m off to dream land!

May 28 2013:

“Mom, can I clean the stove?” -Thomas …. Sure Thomas! I love it when he asks me this!!

Throwback Post: You Are a Great Cooker

**THROWBACK POST**

May 26 2009:

Made some 5 minute instant rice to go w/ dinner & Thomas said, “I like this, You’re a Great Cooker & I Love You”. Just had to share ~ this little man surprises me every day with his funny & beautiful comments!


(Photo from our June 2009 Date Day – He preferred the stairs to the escalator. We used to have date days at the airport. He loved roaming around, eating lunch, and looking at the airplanes. We stopped doing it once they remodeled and closed off many areas.)
