"I made you this."

dsfgafdgvd

I am positive that Drew could rival anyone as the sweetest boy in the world.

Today I was having a really rough day with missing my dad. These kind of days pop in from time to time and I get in a funk. I didn't say anything about it to Drew but he must have noticed that I was off today. I was standing in the kitchen cooking dinner with Mike when Drew yelled at me to close my eyes.

"Mom, I know that you really want a new house..."

I could tell this was going to be good and was already smiling at this point.

"...so I made you this."

I opened my eyes to see Drew holding a very colorful Lego house that he had built just for me. I was already at the point of tears when he pointed to one corner of the house where I saw a chair and a little Lego person and he said,

"and this is your very own, special scrapbook room."

I don't think I could have hugged him any tighter. I am one lucky mom.

Awww, that is so sweet of Drew for thinking of you and building you your very own special scrapbook room in legos. Me and my sister loved playing with legos when we were younger. You have two sweet boys! :)...

Awww...what a sweetie! I think kids are good at picking up on even hidden emotions, they just seem to have a sixth sense for these things..I hope you got a picture of your house! (I'm sure you musta!)
I hope you are out of your funk now! :) Big hugs!

Those redheads can just steal your heart.....I have a sweet "little" redhead & he would come up with things like that out of the blue and just make my day. Even tho he is now 6'4" and 24, I will still get random texts of "I love you" or "Thinking of you", etc. Enjoy your little sweetheart, he will be grown before you know it!!
