First it was mad cool, or ridonkulous. Now it's amazeballs. Well, Gavin decided to coin another fresh term for something that is really great. #Indredibaloney. He had me laughing in the car on the way to preschool this morning. Where does he come up with this stuff? I'm not even sure he knew it was funny! So cute. I think incredibaloney is so superSWAGafragilistic I might have to put it on a tee-shirt. But seriously he is a funny kid for rizzle. I thank God for him every day. His adorable voice alone can make me smile no matter how heavy my heart is feeling.
Look at how big he is? It hurts. I am not going to get into how much it physically and mentally hurts to watch him grow older than Ty, that goes way beyond words on a page.... I'm talking about the general Mommy hurt you feel when they are growing up too fast and you just can't stop it! Where did my baby go? He kept asking me on the days leading up to his birthday if he would feel different when he was five. If he would look different. Well, looking at this most recent photo, he actually does! He is officially a big boy. And he is kind of #incredibaloney in every way.
You know who else is incredibaloney? Lou. Best Dad and Husband ever. I am so lucky to have him to share this crazy, beautiful, painful life with.
Today I posted on our FB and Twitter an interview Lou had with famed author, Jeff Pearlman. We are so grateful to Jeff for asking Lou the tough questions, and publishing his raw and honest responses. Read it here: http://www.jeffpearlman.com/louis-campbell/ We rarely read such an up-close and personal perspective from Lou, and I will always cherish this. I am so grateful for him. His love for Ty could move mountains. I will never understand why love like this just isn't/wasn't enough.
It's rainy, rainy, rainy here in New York and more is expected tomorrow. The optimist in me - however broken and twisted she may be - needs to remind you to ALWAYS jump in muddy puddles. For Ty.
