Me and my freshman Self-Portrait Challenge's about relationships.
My son is my universe. From the minute he was born he has been the best kid a mom could ask for. Always smiling, with a great sense of humor, a wonderful sense of fairness, brave, adventuresome, honest, forthright and a good helping of common sense. Sometimes I would see kids in the store throwing a little tantrum and think I can't remember M doing that once. I wonder why of course, because kids do that kind of stuff. I have always been able to just talk to him honestly about his behavior, not yell, not get mad, not scream. Just explain right from wrong and he got it. He was always so hard on himself for anything wrong-doing he had done, that I did not have the heart to take punishment any further. Of course, we have our moments, he is far from an angel. I thank God everyday for him. His name means "gift from God" and he is my special gift.
