About a boy, age 2

My boy turned two last Friday. Watching him tear into his day with the same wild abandon he used to rip open his presents at 6am in the morning brought such a joy to my heart.

Alot of posts here about my boy have been filled with worry about what the future holds, this appointment or that appointment or why he was late at meeting his milestones.

So caught up in my worry, I haven’t always expressed what amazes me about my boy. And he amazes me everyday – the way he interacts with the world and the people in it tells me this boy will be okay. More than okay.

So, here it is – About a boy age 2

My boy, he gives the biggest and best hugs. He is open and loving, and not just to us but his extended family and friends. He also loves nothing more than enveloping the cat with a big hug and leaving a sloppy kiss on his fur.

My boy, he loves to laugh. He chuckles and giggles often and now as he grows he loves to make us laugh too.

My boy, he loves to put on a show. He never misses a chance to do a dance, play music or strut around with his hands on his hips. Sometimes his love of the dramatic turns to tantrums and waterworks, usually when he doesn’t get his own way or he is rounded up away from some play equipment that he’s not quite mastered yet.

My boy, he is determined and fearless. He will never shy away from trying new things, he keeps trying until he masters something – even if it takes awhile and a few of the aforementioned tantrums.

My boy, he loves people and seems to bring out the best in others. He is gentle and kind and always has a wave for a shop keeper or a blown kiss to a stranger.

My boy, he makes my heart sing. For all of these reasons and many more I just can’t articulate. For all the reasons I have sometimes felt completely inept as his mother. He is joyfulness personified.

My boy, age 2.

  3. These are some great tips on starting a blog and irnedstandung what your voice should be. I think bloggers forget who is listening or who they want to be listening as a prime example. I really, think that if you want a successful blog you need to figure out what type of engagement you are with your listeners and that niche community as well. You could know very little about SEO or the background but if you keep pumpiing out great content and engaging with your niche with it’s various sites, blogs, and forums people will listen to your voice I’m sure of it. I really like this post for various reasons and have gone ahead and bookmarked it for later use. Thanks!
