You might see a huge mess and truthfully, so do I, but I see so much more. I see a little boy who just reached outside of his grilled cheese laden comfort zone and took a chance on fruit and won. I see a little boy who is grocery shopping with his "favorite Mommy" and having a blast, while learning about budgets and limits. (I didn't cave on the cookies)
I see a sweet, dirty faced little boy having fun and making memories he will have for a lifetime. I see all of my hopes and dreams right there, in that messy little cherry eating boy.
