Zest for life

All I have to say is that I wish you could all see Kai when it's just Gary and I around. He is hilarious. I can't believe what a big boy he is. Gary and I just look at each other with huge grins and shake our head. His energy is unbelievable, i want to strap a pedometer to him and see what it reads (I know, it doesn't work for kids under 6 but seriously, he doesn't stop!). Aw man, I love that kid. Today he came running straight at me with a look like he just did the most exciting thing in the whole world. `Compost! Help daddy! Outside! Tomatoes!! Peppers!! Onion!!' all this with some very exaggerated actions of throwing stuff in the compost and pointing outside. Imagine a world where we were all excited with the mundane task of throwing stuff in the compost?!

I've started using reverse psychology on him in a joking manner like `No hugs, no no no, don't hug me!!!!' and he runs at me with a huge grin, arms spread out `Hug mommy!!!! Kiss mommy!!!' and then I say `okay' and he attacks me with love. I love a love attack. I remember when i was single, I used to make my little sisters hug me for some human contact and love. I haven't had to do that for a LONG time, I am so blessed with Gary and Kai. Thank you God!

  1. Interesting I was thinking a few few days ago, about when I was single and had that longing for some human contact. When just the smallest contact like a quick rub on the back from some random person, was something to stop and take in. Yes it is something to be thankful for when there is someone in your life to give hugs on a regular bases ;)
