I have two seven year olds. One who turned seven just a few short hours ago. He woke up at 12:54am because of a bad dream, after a few minutes, I told him it was his birthday and that thought completely wiped out the nightmare he had.
A few interesting things about Noah: he weighed ten pounds at birth, he wore a 3T when he was one, he prefers the flu shot to the flu mist, he was late to crawl, walk, talk, drink out of a sippy cup, he is an exceptional reader and loves school, every thing about it. He’s fair, follows nearly every single rule and believes in never quitting. He’s one of my biggest supporters, he always has an encouraging thing to say and he’s wildly crazy and an awesome dancer.
He amazes us everyday. We will never lose sight of how lucky we are to have him in our lives.
Last night I sat down with Noah and asked him some very important questions. He was very eager to answer and also very eager to stop and play his DSi.
