After Thanksgiving, Kyle and I and our two youngest children came back to Dallas for the weekend. Rhody and Lainey stayed with their grandparents for a fun weekend in Texarkana.
Bo needed a little special attention.
Isn't that what you say and do when your child is acting out and all other things seem to be ineffective?
Well, with a new baby and two older siblings, Bo doesn't get a lot of one-on-one time. So he got to spend some time with Kyle one day. He got a hair cut--sort of looks like Jim Carrey from Dumb and Dumber but he's still precious. He got to spend a lot of time with Nana and Pops as well. He loves them and that is always a treat!
I asked him what he wanted to do in Dallas during the car ride home. He said, "go see horses." Random, but ok. (since Bo doesn't say "H's"--that sounded more like orses)
Kelly and Paul Gittemeier (two of my most favorite people) allowed us to go visit their horse that weekend. The stable is right around the corner from our house!
Here are some great pics of our horse visit.
Bo loved it! He fed the horse. He sat up on the horse. I am sure he would have gone for a ride if the horse was set up to carry a 3 year old.
My other two children wouldn't have done half of that. They would have been afraid to touch him and especially feed him. Bo is fearless (most of the time). That's part of what makes him difficult at times but also what makes him so great.
Kelly G. (who has four of her own children--now grown) said it best about Bo.
She said, "He will keep life interesting!"
I bet he will.
