Happy Mother's Day!

I received the BEST mother's day present today! I was getting ready upstairs as we are heading to the track to see qualifications at the Indy 500, and it was just too quiet downstairs (you moms know what I mean).

I went downstairs and Nash is all dressed with clothes he picked out. The shirt matched the shorts, was on correctly, underwear on correctly, shoes on the right feet and......drum roll..........he had BUTTONED the top button of his jean shorts. OMG. Never has he been able to button.

One proud momma who loves her son so much

Happy Mother's day to my momma too! and all you fab moms out there!

Hi, My name is Krista. I have been re-reading GIFTS. When I read your story and saw that you were from Indiana I was excited. I live in Brownsburg. I have twin 3 year old boys, one of which has Down syndrome, and a 6 month old. It's great to look at your blog. I will have to check it out more frequently now that I know it exists.
