L days number 2 AND a milestone.

We are celebrating "L" days, a celebration of my sons soon to be 10th birthday. Today, he wanted us to draw a picture of a monster for him. Now no one out there LOVES art the way L does. So his request was that we made up a monster of a mammal and a reptile.
And it had to come with it's own secret weapon. Whatever we want it to be.
I was going to take a picture BUT L wanted to keep the pictures private, so private they are. 
I love that we can do little things to help him celebrate this milestone in his life. 
The most important thing is how important HE feels! 
Yesterday cost nothing.
We all did what he had chosen. 
And we all loved it.

Now, he did say that today, I could share my milestone with everyone.
1 year.
365 days.
8760 hours.
525600 minutes.
31536000 seconds.
no diet coke. 
I never ever in a million years would have thought that I would have made it 24 hours. 
The headache at hour 12 made me reconsider all I had said.
I can actually do something!
Thank-you all so much for your encouragement. 
It means more than anyone could ever know.
And thank-you to my cousin A for starting the conversation on it. 
I would have never done it otherwise. 
I appreciate your support!
