Me and My Family

23 February, 2012


This Chemo does seem endless!!
 I do have to say though that I get treated like a queen when I come home that night and the few days after. My littleman, Damon is so attentive. He is learning to use the toaster over so he likes to make me toast, cut me bananas and oranges and whatever other fruit we might have on hand. He serves me on a plate with a TV tray, and when I finish he clears my place. He even gets me water. Endless this could be, I wouldn't mind. He is such a little gentleman. I never ask him to do these things. I am more likely to ask him to fetch me a book, my phone, glasses, take things to the trash...all of which he does as well.
So to brag a bit more on a day I do'nt feel good...he is reading!!!! My precious kindergartener is reading. It's wonderful to see him process this developmental milestone. I know I wAS NOT reading in K. I was fingerpainting, singing, playing...listening to stories but not reading them.
And he loves all things non fiction! He can tell you almost anything you want to know about the Titanic, and frogs, bugs, dolphins, etc...
I am so proud to be his momma. I pray I will be around for many more milestones. I love them! I love him! I love life ( not so much on chemo weeks)!


  1. Wow, what a little gentleman. He just loves mommy so much.
    Savor the moments. How does he know so much about the Titanic?
    Hope you feel better real soon. Love you very much.

  2. Thinking about you and your precious family, especially during these hard weeks. Hopefully we will have good news on the 7th!
    Love you forever, Mom

  3. Thank you for sharing your story. What a great example of strength you are! You little boy sounds like a great kid! I have a kindergarten aged boy too. It's such a fun age!
