My Favorite Son...

Wanna hear something sweet?

A few days ago, Brayden crawled into my lap, kissed me, and then said "tan chew" which means thank you in his language. Then, he laid his head on my chest. Is that not one of the sweetest things you've ever heard. It makes me smile every time I think about it. I love my baby boy!

The Sweetest Thing...

At church today, they had a Christmas Cantata to celebrate the current holiday season. It was wonderful. The singing was wonderful and melodic. The nicest part though was that they had invited a lot of poor people from the area. Probably around 100 or so of them. At the end of the program, they invited the children on stage to get a gift. It was so touching that a tear came to my eye. Those kids will never forget that. And, it wasn't like a pity party or anything. No one was gawking. There were a lot of other people on stage singing and acting and stuff. It was very nice y'all.

On another note, if I could I would be driving a Range Rover and sailing on a yacht. Not at the same time of course. I know at least one person is thinking "Is this the same girl who wrote that other post about the poor folks and not buying expensive things?" Yes, it's me. Here's the thing. It's not that I don't like things that cost a bit. It's not that I don't sometimes want them. I just convince myself to not spend the amount of money necessary to purchase one. But, for a Range Rover or yacht, I would be convincing myself to buy that sucka. And, I'm dead serious.

No, those two paragraphs have nothing to do with each other. It's just what was on my mind. I have a lot of stuff to talk about so there will be a lot of posts in the next few days.

Danae's New Pet

We have a pet monkey. I wish I had a picture to show you all but I don't. Honestly, I don't even know what he looks like because he exists in Danae's imagination. She only says "he's brown and little but he's kind of big too." But, he definitely lives with us and stays in her room all day. I don't think they have a very good relationship because she's always saying "the monkey's gonna get me" and she slams the door to her room to make sure he doesn't get out.

Dwayne says he never had any imaginary friends. I guess that's because he had brothers. I definitely had an imaginary. He was a boy named May-May. I don't know where that name came from but he was very REAL...just like Danae's monkey.
