What did you just say?
Too often in the past Oscar has excitedly repeated the slurs his Daddy can't help throwing at other drivers on the road. Not usually a matter for hilarity but tonight on the way home as his Daddy shouted out quite loudly,  Oscar yelled it out for extra effe...

Love them and they will grow
Picking my son up tonight I was regaled with his achievements of today. He was so proud and excited it was impossible not to be excited for him. It got me thinking about how proud I am of him in a daily basis, even on the dark miserable days full of screami...
