"i feel old"

IMG_89651

My baby boy after discovering that there is a possibility that if you chew on a black ink pen, it may explode in your mouth!


At my sister's request, I'll share a quick story about our littlest man, A.J.

Yesterday with all the new first-day-of-school commotion, we had the following conversation while in the car:

AJ: Mama, I want to go to school.

ME: AJ, you're still too little, sweetie. When you get older you can go to school.

AJ: (complete silence for two minutes.)

AJ: Mama?

ME: Yes, baby?

AJ: But Mama, I feel old.

ME: (laughing hysterically) AJ, I feel old too, baby!

I love that boy with all my heart and soul!

********************************


UPDATE:
Kai, Anna Grace and Amanda all had a fabulous first day of school! Anna Grace slipped a bit into her "mode" after being home a while, but it was certainly nothing big.

Thank you, Lord for watching over my babies and making their first day at school a great one!

Okay..I am on a roll here today....I really should be studying my Spanish grammar...BORING! I would much rather go out and talk to people or try and talk to people BUT I digress. I have not only read Daleea's amazing adoption stories of her sweet children today but I just read AJ's....my heart is so full I think it might burst! I am speechless.....just speechless at how God orchestrates everything.....EVERYTHING...in our lives. How else would people adopt children without any money? I pray that I may always stand amazed at His miracles. All of these children are truly miracles. love you;)

P.S. I don't think I have enough tissue to read the other two babies adoption stories today....you know paper products are quite costly in Costa Rica...lol....I will read them this weekend.

Hey - love the post - but not only do I 'feel' old - sometimes (and I mean SOMETIMES!) I AM old!! And about AG - take just a little bow there Mom - you (and your DH too!) forged the 'steel' in that child to get her to where she is - now you're seeing some payback on that investment (remember how it was then - I do - and you really saved my bacon by blogging that too!) Blessings come back to those found worthy!

hugs - aus and co.
