7. He makes us laugh...like last night when he said, "the phone is all mine tomorrow." 6. He has a tender heart. 5. He comes home everyday from school and immediately heads outside to throw, kick or shoot a ball. 4. He is persistent. Sometimes we don't love it, but it will be a good quality to have when it's time to make a living. 3. He is very focused (especially when the TV is on). 2. He sleeps in.
and the number 1 reason we love Chandler?
He likes to make cheesy poses. Oh yeah, another reason I love Chandler... He told me that he doesn't need cake, just ice cream with hot chocolate sauce. Atta boy!
Every once in awhile someone will ask me why I don't have comments on my blog. I don't really know how to answer that. There are several reasons. Some of the primary reasons I suppose are I didn't want to feel like I needed validation for what I'm saying, doing, etcetera. What if I became dependent on feedback? Does that mean I have to comment on the blogs of commenter's? After all, I'm just saving fellow mothers time. That being said, I've been thinking that maybe sometimes I'm doing myself a disservice by not allowing them. I can learn from what someone shares and so can others that read. (All 5 of them!) So every now and then I will let the comment gates open and allow others (who I may or may not know) to share insight, motivation and ideas. With the understanding that there is no obligation to do so.
