My son- the giver


All of my children are special and unique (as I'm sure are yours, or children you all know), but Trey has one habit that just KILLS (in an endearing way) me. He has become an early riser, and typically he will come and order me out of my spot on the bed, so I'm sandwiched between him, and my husband, who both lay there w/ elbows behind heads, leaving me no bedspace. That is not the one that endears him to me :)

He will also (on occasion), collect things and place them in front of everyone's doors. One time it was a fruit snack: neatly placed right outside of all of his sibling's doors, so they were sure to see them as soon as they awakened. Another time it was all of Emily's speech homework- staple removed, two sheets placed in front of each door. Just a little somethin' somethin' once a week to show he is thinking of everyone. It is such a thoughtful (hysterically funny at times) thing to do. I just want to kiss him for his sweetness :)

OH how sweet!! I love him.
Maybe you'll wake up one morning w/everyone's laundry neatly folded and placed outside their doors.

What a great brother! I know the feeling of being "sandwiched" oh too well! How my petite lil'
7 year old can take up so much room amazes me!

What a nice little guy! Kids can just make your day with that kind of thing.

We have a king sized bed and I'm convinced it STILL isn't big enough!
