today Z doesn't have school & last night B wasn't feeling well, so they're sleeping in while i'm up early for work. before i head out i go say my goodbyes & kiss Z on the cheek.
i see his little left hand curled up in a fist near his face & notice he's sucking his thumb. i know at 6, it's no longer endearing, he doesn't do it when he's awake anymore, but once in a while i'll find him like this in his sleep & boy, does it remind me of the little baby that once was.
the other day at the grocery store he got the shopping cart for me & wheeled it inside the store; already he's taking care of me & helping out the best he can.
he's such a great kid!
