This kid- oh this kid of mine! My heart is so full of love for this amazing kid. I can't say he is perfect but dang, he is so awesome.
My kids come home for lunch everyday and I left lunch out for JT so I could take Simeon to a playdate's house. I came home and he had eaten, emptied the dishwasher, loaded the dishwasher with the night before's dishes (the dishwasher was running during and after dinner) and was washing the pots by hand. I asked him why and he said because he thought I was taking a nap. So dang cool.
He bought his own ski season pass and goes with Roger weekly. The other 2 don't get to go often because they don't earn it. Jt earns it 10xs over. He is so helpful with cleaning, household projects, and the babies. He will work all day on Saturday around the house if we are. He cleans up after himself. He independently cooks eggs for breakfast and makes dinner on occasion. He is respectful to Roger and I. He makes excellent grades and is in the 6th grade accelerated math class. He is so dang awesome.
Is he perfect? Nope. He can be a big punk to Rory and Simeon. Other than that, just about.
Here is a video from this morning. He is accompanying the 4th and 6th graders at their school assembly. He brought tears to my eyes yet again.
