I’ve always thanked the Lord for blessing us with a great kid like Ethan, who’s wise beyond his years, caring and forgiving, and sometimes his words and actions do strike a chord in our hearts.
He may be very active and boisterous, but deep down he is a gentle spirit, who puts others above him and who is an obedient boy (most of the time).
Just a few days ago, when he saw how upset his cousin Jonathan was when he did not get what he wanted for his birthday, Ethan told me in private, “Mommy, maybe we can get Jonathan a real Finn McMissile for Christmas. Then he will be happy because he will get to play with it like a real car!”
And today, when Hannah tried to snatch Ethan’s new Cars 2 water tumbler (check it out, by the way…it’s way cool!), Ethan again whispered to me, “Mommy, I think we should get Hannah a new tumbler too…because her tumbler is leaking! We can get her one for Christmas…”
Such love being displayed for someone his age is really admirable, and I could not ask for anything more. Ethan is indeed one-of-a-kind and we love him dearly…
