Not Just a Pretty Face

Have you ever known someone who, on the surface, just didn't seem too bright? But every now and then they'd say something that gave you the idea that the wheels were turning up there after all?

If you've read this blog more than a couple of times, you might have noticed that we sometimes refer to Hunter as the family cheerleader. He has this sweet, happy-go-lucky way of living life that sometimes makes him seem...well...not all there.





But sometimes he gives himself away. Today we went to his future elementary school for developmental assessment for kindergarten. The woman doing the testing asked him if he could please try counting as high as he could go. "By fives or tens?" he asked.

He IS your son. Of course he is brilliant. He just doesn't want to flaunt it. That photo is amazing. What a little stunner he is. It looks like a magazine spread or something.

Lauri is right- that wounds like something you would've replied. So I'm curious- what did the assessor say? Also- that is a very cute picture of him!

That's hilarious! I am sure that teacher was taken aback! :)

About your previous post... my heart goes out to you. I think everything you are feeling is normal. It's all apart of healing... I am sure that when the right person comes along to be your new partner, you won't feel like you are replacing anyone, but adding to an already existing awesome family. You deserve someone who doesn't care to replace Matt, but add to your future happiness. You'll know when the time and person is right.
