The WHOLE box

Posted on

I saw this graphic on F@cebook today. It made me think of my little man.

One of Little Man’s absolute favorite things to do right now is color with his chunky crayons. Often with one crayon in each hand coloring at the same time. He’ll scribble and point and tell us what he just drew. More often than not, he’s drawn a cat. He gasps with delight when we draw one of his favorite things on the paper for him. I know the graphic isn’t meant literally, but the thoughts brought a smile to my face. I hope he continues to color “with the whole box” with that same enthusiasm. Always.

About Momma

Back in the late 70s, my parents used donor sperm to conceive. The product was me. I did not know until the month that my own son, carried by my wife, was born, that I had been conceived any way other than the "old-fashioned way". So, here I am, the non-bio mom to a little guy who was conceived with the help of donor sperm having been conceived through the use of donor sperm myself. This is surely an unusual family dynamic, but I am certain that it is not entirely unique. I reside in the Midwest with my wife "Mommy" and our son "Little Man".
