let's keep going

The tour of Lisa's house in Charlotte continues! It's day 4, and this is of course the master bedroom. Lisa got new white bedding recently...oh so dreamy. I like beds that look as if they are big clouds that you simply fall into at the end of the day, don't you?

I love the color of her walls and the soft curtains in the windows. As you can see, it is a very peaceful room.

It's been nice to have had these pictures of Lisa's house to share this week. Aside from the fact that they are pictures of a beautiful home, it's made my blogging so easy. The pictures speak for themselves.

But I do have one story to share...

My oldest son has had a cold over the past week and it seems to have developed into the stomach flu. Which I guess is good if that means he's getting this out of the way before school starts on the 20th. But I have to share something he said yesterday, it was very sweet.

You know I don't talk about him very often here, but I think you also know that he's my special guy. Well, as bad as he was feeling yesterday, he was still trying so hard to get all of his words in order. This takes a lot of effort on his part. When he woke up in the morning and wanted to go downstairs he was feeling very weak and asked me to carry him, Mommy, may I please carry you downstairs?...being so careful to ask the way he thought was right. A little while later he was sitting on the couch and ended up getting sick...on his jammies. It was only a little water that he had been sipping, but he was devastated. He kept saying, I spilled my water, I spilled my water. A little while later he was getting drowsy, so I carried him back upstairs to sleep. As I did I could hear him speaking very quietly to himself, I don't want to spill, I don't want to spill.

Sweetest little guy ever. Oh, how could anyone not love a child like that?

Bless his heart...feeling sick to the tummy is just horrid. It always makes me sad when they seem to feel guilty for being sick and throwing up. Give him a big, old hug from blogland and tell him we hope he has no more spills! (((hugs))) to you all.

When I grow up my goal is to live in a house like yours of like Lisa's!

PS: A very sweet story and I hope your little guy is feeling better soon :)

He is so sweet and so easy to love. Thanks for sharing this story...adorable. I hope he is feeling better today!

He sounds like such a sweetie. My son used to mix up pronouns like that too. And even now when he spills something he usually repeats "It was an accident" upwards of 5 or 6 times.

I hope your litle guy is feeling better today.
