More from the sweet little mind of Thomas ..
The other night Thomas asked me to name 3 things that I wanted to be when I grew up. I told him I could not remember 3, but I do remember that I wanted to be a dancer … a Solid Gold dancer (hahaha). I have LOVED dancing as far back as I can remember. Explained to him I don’t think I ever really knew what I wanted to do … and I still ponder about it!!
He said he wants to be a restaurant owner, an artist/painter and house builder. As he likes do do things solo, by himself so he can do things how he wants to do them without anyone telling him how to do it. Ummmm … Either OOPS, what have I done? or YAY, look what I’ve done! HA! …
And, I have to say, this morning Mr. Thomas’ behavior left me wondering if I had woken up in the wrong house!! What an interesting adventure this role of parent takes one on with all of the twists and turns and ups and downs and laughs and grumpiness … and learning, living, growing and LOVING!! xoxo

Another Thomas moment ….
He told me the other night he wanted to stay a kid forever and asked if he could do that and if it was okay. I told him his body will keep getting older but he sure as heck can stay a kid in his mind if he wants to and that I thought that was a fabulous and awesome idea!! Right on Thomas!!
He inspires me so much! xoxo
“Mom, I bet people who write books liked to read when they were growing up and they want to write books to make other people feel good. Is that why you wrote your book? When I grow up I want to write books, even though I know it’s gonna be hard.” –Thomas Darnell ….
All this after asking why the streets in Venice are full of water and other questions I can’t even remember now!! ♥ ♥ ♥
See It. Share It. BE IT … Spread Love Everywhere You Go!
