14 Days of Love: Day 9
Vance has taught me so much about being a mother and about myself. I love him for that! He helped me learn what it is like to love a child so unconditionally. He has helped me learn to appreciate my own parents more and to gain a better understanding of what our Heavenly Father's love for us must be like.
I love Vance for helping me see life through a child's eyes once again. He was a curious 2 year old and he always kept me on my toes. I love Vance for loving me even though I am not perfect and for forgiving me when I've made poor parenting decisions. He is eager to love and quick to forgive.
Vance is my planner. From wanting to know what we are having for dinner each day, to what we will be doing preschool about to when we are going to see the grandparents again. He likes to plan. I love the things he comes up with.
Yesterday Vance wanted to watch "A Bug's Life" and Tanner didn't. Tanner thought that the bird in that movie was scary. Vance came up with an idea and shared it with Tanner, "I have an idea Tanner! How about when the bird part comes you hide." Tanner didn't really care for that idea, but Vance always is coming up with ideas and plans. It makes me smile to see his wheels turning.
Bottom line is, Vance is a wonderful boy and I LOVE him with all of my heart! I am so blessed to be his mother!
