"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

A few weeks ago, poor Gabeycakes was soooo sick. You know, the kind of sick where the only thing a kid wants to do is curl up in mom's lap and be held. Well, that's what we were doing. I was sitting down and Gabe was curled up in my lap. Gabe looked up and saw (in his words) a booboo on my cheek. My litle boy reached up and kissed it and said, "I made it all better for you mom." Even in the depths of his fever induced misery, Gabe tried to make me feel better. He tried to fix something he perceived as being wrong. That was my perfect moment.

That speaks volume about Gabe as a person and about you as a mom.

Awww how sweet is Gabe! You are doing such a wonderful job raising those boys. I wish I can do HALF the job on Zilla you're doing on ALL three of your boys. If I can do that, I'm good to go. Thank you for being someone I can look up to, Kristin.

Oh, that almost made me cry. Sounds like your little boy loves you very much. Little boys can be so sweet.
