I can't believe DS turned 8 last Saturday. He literally grew overnight and the morning of his birthday was taller, broader and much more mature. He even called me "mother". Just this past weekend he tried 3 new foods, did chores with zero complaint and helped his little sister put her clothes away and clean up a huge spill just to be nice. To top it off, yesterday after skiing, he gave me the Starburst candy chew that he earned from his coach. So sweet for a sweet loving boy!
Of course by 6pm last night he was running a fever and vomiting every 30 minutes. It has been 16 very miserable hours for him but he's been a real trooper and boy does it help to have him in this new frame of mind. Maybe DH will take notice....
