A little creativity and my flower boy.

I created this a couple weeks ago, but have been blogging about other goodness so hadn't had a chance to post it. Loved doing this layout and playing with the new Cosmo Cricket line Get Happy. Fun grungy look which was perfect to show off the HAWK! He often has people just come up and tell him how they love his HAWK, he just smiles shyly. I love being the Moms we are and letting him have the freedom to do what he wants with his hair.

I really believe we put so many rules on our children (and rules are good!) that we need to give them some freedoms in their childhood. I think it makes him less rebellious in alot of ways.

Now as I look at this layout and see his Hawk all spiked up, you would think a little guy with attitude, or would you think....Flower boy??

So he comes in from outside, with both hands behind his back, so were does a Mom's mind of a boy go, but something creepy crawly , hairy , gross....WELL OF COURSE IT DOES!!! But what comes out from behind when I ask....but this little bouquet of weeds! Flowers to him, and he wants to pick them all for me. (insert awwwwwwwwwwwww's here)

This boy never ceases to amaze me, he continues to show me the gentle soul he is. He continues to show me unconditional love, and continues to show me that you should never assume anything. Believe in people, beauty and Love. I have so much to learn from this little miracle that I was given.
