You see this little boy – he is the best. Yesterday, we spent the evening overlooking all the hundreds of dollars of toys and books in this house and spent the night building a tent out of a cardboard box and matching capes out of old T-Shirts. He has such an amazing sense of humor and his opinion is getting more strong every day. Case in point, when mommy told him to stop breaking apart the Styrofoam thingies from inside the box all over the floor, he told me to “go away, go sit on the couch in the odder room.” When I told him that wasn’t nice to say – he responded with “I sorry mama, but go way.”
Today, we got our first snow of the season in Wisconsin. It has been a beautiful snow but you can see if the wind picks up it is going to get really nasty. Cameron was determined to go out and help me shovel the driveway. We got all bundled up in our winter coats, gloves, hats, and boots. He got his child sized shovel and helped me with all the snow. He even went over and made a snow angel and threw a snowball. I’ve never taught him those things but I think maybe as a boy – he just knows. Upon coming inside all red nosed and snow covered, he snuck in a snow ball, threw it at my butt and promptly asked for “ice keam please mama.” Nothing fills a tummy better after a snowy day outside like a good bowl of ice cream. Nothing warms my heart more than this little man.
