Yesterday afternoon, Chris asked me where his "Slappy Joe," was. Needless to say, I was absolutely puzzled.
A few minutes later, after he described it to me, I realized he was asking for his Silly Putty. Tony and I laughed and told him what it was really called.
"That's okay," he said. "I'm still going to call it Slappy Joe," he informed us. And, he did.
It was a small example of his easy confidence. His determination has made him quite an adventure to raise, but I have no doubt, that with God's help, that little boy will do great things.
Don't be too surprised if one day you hear people everywhere calling Silly Putty "Slappy Joe." You'll know it started with a silly little boy with a big heart and a love for all things goofy.
