We Love Love Love Maddux Day

Maddux had a very difficult time deciding what he wanted to eat for his special day. It's a hard life when you are stuck deciding between cake, ice cream, cookies, cupcakes and banana splits. Those are his favorite foods, after all. I was actually teetering on banana splits for dinner won't be the worst decision I make all month when he decided that pizza was a food that he could live with. As long as there weren't any pepperoni, onions, green peppers or anything else that makes a pizza edible. However, the exact opposite is true when it comes to banana splits. The more that you pile on in terms of bananas, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, sprinkles and cherries, the better that it is. Clearly.

We love Maddux for many reasons.

Breuklyn - "I love Maddux because he is funny. He has the best jokes."

Paizlee - "I love Maddux because he is pretty. And he loves me."

Brad - "I love Maddux because he is the best golfing buddy. He is always happy and he is the best at sharing with his sisters."

Me - "I love Buster because he is unselfish and always super considerate of others. He always asks how my day was and what I did while he was at school. He is always concerned about the feelings of others and always always always puts his interests last. He is rocking it out in Kindergarten and reading like a pro. Plus, he really is hysterical."

Maddux got money in a card from my parents because he got the Principal's Award for the last semester. As he sat in the backseat and looked at his dollars, he took half of them and shared with his sisters. "I don't like it when I have something and they don't" he said. He is just genuinely sweet. And, Maddux, I really hope that you will always stay that way.

Awww! I enjoyed this post very much, but when I got to the last paragraph about him sharing his gift of money ... it gave me a big 'ol crocodile tear and an 'awwwww!' because that was just so touching to read. What a sweet boy you have!

AWWWW!!! What a sweet boy!!!! You truly have some great kids, Estee!!! I love when our kids are like that, wanting to share when their siblings like that. Ben is like that too. Brit received money for Christmas from Greg's mother. He had presents to open. He was really concerned about where Brit's presents were, thinking she didn't get any.

What an awesome kid you guys are raising. When I came to the part about sharing his money with his sisters, well, I think my heart went a bit mushy. What a sweetheart!
