This morning after nagging asking sweetly all week long for Austin to turn off the dang lights upstairs before he leaves in the morning…
(excuse me while I channel my Grandmother for a sec…)
“Because we don’t own the Electric Company!”
What do I find when I go upstairs???
Every. Single. Light. ON.
So, I am juuuust about to start going off…
(yes, we converse)
What, you don’t?
…When I see this note on the counter from my son.
Thanks a lot Mom!
You have been really nice to me lately and I just want to say thanks.
Sorry for not writing thank-yous earlier.
So yeah, it’s okay that every light in the house was blazing.
I sure love that boy!!!!!!!
Puts it in perspective huh!
Awww, what a sweetie! How is it that kids have a way of wrapping us around their little fingers like that? (especially boys)

This is so sweet and too often true! How things can so easily be put in perspective. Thank you for your words on the cancer post. I am so moved by people’s personal stories. Congrats to you for another year! xo

awe! What a sweet boy!! I am usually muttering something about “it might break your wee little finger to push that switch down” while shutting off all the lights…:)
Looks like the electric bill is worth it..:)
