Garrett and his globe

The other day while I was getting some spring cleaning done, I asked Garrett to clean up his room. You know most boys don't like cleaning and straightening up their rooms. Believe me he is no exception! LOL He really worked hard and it looked so much better afterwards. He ended up with three garbage bags full of trash...broken toys, toys with missing pieces, old school papers, a couple of soda cans, snack wrappers, (he's not suppose to eat in his room!) broken crayons, and several rocks that he found and decided that he didn't need to keep anymore. It was a mess!

I tried to stay out of there and let him do it. Actually, I didn't want to see some of it. lol I was so proud of him when it was all finished. Here he is pointing to Brazil because that is where his daddy is working.

I had bought him this lighted globe at a thrift store a few days before and had not given it to him yet because I wanted his room cleaned up first. When I say that he loved it, I am not exaggerating one bit! He loved it! He said later that night..."I looove you Mama and I love my new globe". It made me feel so good to hear him say that.


He is so proud of it. He sat there and stared at it for about an hour pointing out different states and countries. I let him take this bottom close-up picture of his globe. He wanted me to post it on here.




Who knew a little thrift store globe would make him so happy? His mama...of course.

He sounds like such a great kid! Do you think it's possible to find a kid anywhere on Earth that likes to clean their room?! I hope he enjoys his globe to the hilt!
