Cassie and I parent as a team. We don’t always agree on everything. However, we pick our battles and ultimately are raising boys who will grow up to be good men. And we have seen definite proof that what we are doing works.
Thomas loves his toys, especially his trains. But when a toy drive was being done at school, he wanted to bring in one of his own trains to give to someone in need.
One day his school had a bake sale. One of his friends didn’t have any money to buy anything. So without hesitation Thomas offered him a couple dollars so he could bring home a baked good.
When Thomas plays baseball he is always cheering on his team. It doesn’t matter if they do well or make a mistake. I see him being good to all the kids on his team.
He also will speak up for himself. You can tell he loves all his grandparents. One time in Baltimore he, without any encouragement from us, asked them to come visit him. He got his wish. And it was so sweet how he asked.
He is such a good boy. I could go on and on about how sweet and nice of a boy he is. But at the end of the day I know I couldn’t have done it without Cassie at my side.
(by the way, this was the costume that made the women’s uteruses hurt that I brought up in the other post)
