My Connor. Sweet sweet Connor. He can sure be all boy and get into his fair share of naughtiness but for the most part he is just so lovable. Here are a few moments in the last few days that have meant a lot to this mama.
* I had just put the kiddos to bed. Sirri and Connor both went down great but Meg had a tough time. She has been a little under the weather. I left her in her bed to get her some medicine. This of course created more crying and tears from her. Connor (who shares a room with Meg) told me, "Mom, you should sing to her. That will make her feel better."
By the time I got back with the medicine she had stopped crying. A few minutes later she was upset again. And what do I instantly hear coming from their room? Connor singing to his baby sister. And do you know what? He was right. It worked. Sweet Connor man sang his baby to sleep.
* At the Halloween carnival we were waiting in line to play a game. The little boy standing in line behind us decided to hit me. We don't know this kid and I don't have any idea why he it me but he did. Connor saw it happen, stepped in front of me, looked the boy square in the face and said, "don't hit my mommy."
* The other day the kids and I went for a walk. I was trying to help Sirri get her bike through the gravel driveway and pull Meg in the stroller at the same time. I was not very successful and ended up falling down and scratching my knees and hands up. Right after we got in the house, Connor was running and fell down on his knees pretty hard as well. The next morning when he woke up, I asked Connor how his knees felt. His response, "they're alright. Are you okay? Do your knees still hurt mommy?"
Thanks buddy. I love you Connor Man.
