Lessons from a Cowboy

It's rodeo time in Houston and this has turned into serious business at our house.  Dax's Grandma Bev & Grandpa Doug made a stop at Cavender's this weekend and dropped off a bag of goodies that has provided constant entertainment for all of us.  

They bought him his very own Cowboy hat and belt with a buckle.  He slept in his jeans and belt last night, then woke up this morning so excited to show his friends at school.  He said "it's cowboy day at school today" which I knew it was not, and had the fearful adult thought of - someone might make fun of you.  I quickly snapped out of it and told him he will be the raddest cowboy in all the land and I am super lucky to be his cowboy mom.  Really lucky, and so grateful for my Monday morning reminder of who gives a sh*t what anyone else thinks. 

Happy Monday everyone,

Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway. - John Wayne
