The title of this blog is truly indicative of my life - the boys are sometimes total monsters, but then there are the moments that just make me so proud to be their mom.
There is really nothing that compares to seeing the bond that they are building between them. Now that Sam is getting bigger - don't be fooled, there are days when they could easily beat the crap out of each other. Especially now that summer is upon us, and there is more together time.
Last Saturday, Gavin ran at a track meet at Hoover High. While he is very fast within the Johnston Track Club for his age group - let me tell you, these other kids are fast. One of the events that he ran was the 400m (one loop around the track). His best time at practice was 1:48. I timed his race and he came in at 1:39. I was so proud of his 9 second improvement!
He came in 5th place, last in his heat. He was totally bummed, to say the least. As he sat on the grass and took off his spikes, giving off an aura of defeat, Sam approached him.
"You did a good job, Bubby. Good race Bubby! Hug?"
And gave him the sweetest little hug a toddler could give.
