When he isn't throwing tantrums

And then there are the days where my son just impresses me with his goodness and love.

I have a glass bowl on my dresser with starbursts in it. I will let Keith get one out occasionally if he asks first.

Yesterday he got one, and then another, and then another. When he pulled out a fourth and asked me to unwrap it for him, I put my foot down. Three is more than enough for him, especially when it is getting close to bedtime. I saw him run back over to the candy bowl and reach up.

"No, Keith, you've had enough today." was on the edge of my lips and then what I saw truly humbled me.

He reached back up into the bowl, and put the candy back!

Just like that.

No fuss was made, he was simply being obedient.

Even on the worst of days, he is still a great kid!

These pictures have nothing to do with anything, I just thought they were really cute.

On a side note, I don't think I can contain myself any longer. The fall decorations are coming out very very soon. I have been trying to hold out until September 1st, but since today is the first day of school for so many people, doesn't that mean that fall has officially started? Which means autumn decorations are legal, right?
