Happy Birthday to my wonderful sweet 8 year old. What a great age - young and growing up at the same time. Jared is smart, thoughtful, silly, timid sometimes, helpful and fun and so much more! He's a real thinker and frequently asks me very deep questions. Such as:
"would you rather be poor and have a family or rich and be alone?"
The other day he said "One of my goals is to be a better kid." I told him that would be a hard goal because he's already a great kid. He told me he was trying to do better - like get his homework folder out for me to sign in the morning without me asking and having good manners and things like that.
