"Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is completely crazy it's unbelievable."
This quote embodies Ashton so thoroughly. I believe it probably could be his life motto. He goes all in. I don't even think he knows how to do anything less than that. This is both endearing and frustrating.
Ashton turned 7 last fall; and it's been a good age for him. Six wasn't his easiest year. He hit many bumps in the road--suffered numerous skinned knees--but he has now surfaced stronger and more acutely aware of himself. The transformation has been so fun to watch. No mother likes to watch their children suffer--helpless in their endeavor to make the path easier--but I can sure attest to the pride and pure relief and overwhelming love a mother feels when things turn around.
I may be a few months late in celebrating another year of Ashton, but here it is nonetheless. His birthday interview.
