Motherhood Mondays : Ask Me A Question....

My son is 8 years old....still my "baby" but growing wiser every day.
He's my curious child, always asking questions & wanting to talk,
He's positive, sporty, enthusiastic, wakes up happy & laughs easily.

His favourite colour is orange, he loves sushi & he goes to sleep wearing a brown bear onesie & clutching not one but five special soft animals as tightly as he can.

He has a ton of energy & I'm told he's a natural sportsman, but if you asked him what he likes doing best, he'd probably say reading.
He loves his friends & likes to be challenged.
We've always been very in tune with each other & personality-wise he is very similar to me.

He's wonderful company & has always been a very easy child.

He's also still young enough to tell me that he plans to live at home with me forever....
this boy completely has my heart.
