So this picture came up on my ‘on this day’ on Facebook and it sent me into a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions cause the tiny little baby staring into his Dadee’s eyes in this picture is having his 7th birthday THIS Sunday. (sept 24)
I know crazy right!? This one is probably one of my favorite pictures of them two. I can’t take the cuteness overload in this picture.
Geno is such a sweet caring young man. Generous in so many ways. Very clever. He’s so different than all the other kids his age. it may come as a surprise to you cause it does to total random strangers when they ask him but he doesn’t like super heroes. lol his face when random strangers hold up a spider man mask or ask them what his favorite super hero is. He rolls his eyes so hard I can almost hear it, but he’s always polite and says I don’t really like super heroes.
however you bring up little pocket monsters you battle with and he’s all over it. Him and his eye doctor recently had a long conversation about Pokémon. It was hilarious to sit in the eye doctor office listening to them talk about Pokémon.
I think Geno likes the idea of a friend that lasts forever. Like Ash and Pikachu. A friend who sticks by you through thick and thin. Some one who loves you so much you can’t live without them. I think that type of thing speaks to his heart more than chasing bad guys and using super powers.
At a recent tiger scout meeting when asked why he joined he said it was to make new friends. I thought that was pretty impressive. His father and I always thought he was a gatherer, someone who will bring people in. Other kids seem to always want to be around him. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had parents come up to me and say, “so and so always talks about Geno.” meanwhile I don’t really hear about any of these other kids and I pray to God it was all good things. It usually is all good things.
I think that’s because they see something in Geno that they like. He leaves and impression. I have no idea where he gets that. God made him that way for his glorious purpose. I cannot take any credit for his personality.
my job is to observe these amazing traits and help them grow.
I love how he’s so silly but yet he’s SO thoughtful. He amazes me more often than not with the things he says.
We often have to remind ourselves he’s only a kid.
OMG my baby is going to be SEVEN!!!
seriously folks, don’t blink. I feel like next time I do he’s going to be graduating.
