You know how there's a character in each family? A funny, quirky different one that doesn't fit the rest of the family flow.....well ours is Benny. If you know him, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. He is such.....'a Benny' as we say. We find him our greatest challenge, but he also brings the most laughter to our family. He is one of those kids who is funny without meaning to be and he does the most extraordinary things. He is also VERY headstrong and seems to only learn things the hard way. We love him to pieces, he is such a Ben!
Today he was sick, he chucked in the car all the way home from school (lucky for me, he's used to spew and grabbed his lunch box in time to catch it) He only chucked because of his athsma. We gave him his puffer when we got home. He then complained of a sore eye and rubbed it so much it got red and swollen. I cut some cucumber and told him to lie on the couch and rest the cucumber against his sore eye. He was exhausted from a day and night of coughing and started to fall asleep. JJ and I noticed soon after, that between his feeling rotten and falling asleep, he had cut himself a little eye hole in his cucumber so he could see through it (hard to see the hole in this photo). We couldn't stop laughing, looking at him fast asleep. I had to snap a shot.....he is such a Ben.
