Thing 2...

This is not a personal blog.
But...
I want to introduce you to our "Thing 2"...
Armani.
Our 2nd eldest.
Not always an easy child.

Sadly...
Sometimes I get so caught up in the struggles, challenges, & difficulties he throws my way...I loose sight of all the amazing-ness that is Armani.

The past 2 weeks haven't been easy ones with Armani.

Sometimes, his "long" little life catches up to him.
Sometimes, I forget all that has happened in his little life.
Shame on me.

On Friday, he came home from school (pre-K) with a stack of projects.
As I went through them I uncovered this...

Moved to tears...I realized that I had once again lost sight of all the "amazing-ness" that is Armani.
Pretty sure at 5 years old I wasn't using my 1 wish on someone other than me.
Pretty sure at 30+ years old I wouldn't use that 1 wish on someone other than me.

He is a special boy.

Our life is a happy one. Not always easy but happy.
I will forever be grateful, that God chose me to be Armani's mother.
I often hear, "He's so lucky..."
I assure you...I'm the lucky one.
