Rad Boy, Rad Shirt!


This shirt! I don’t think a more appropriate one exists for my Cashy boy. RAD, he is indeed. And here is why:

1. Cash makes Daddy proud as our little patriot. He learned the National Anthem AND “God Bless America” by the age of 2! Most adults (myself included) have a hard time with these words!

2. Avocados and egg whites are some of his favorite foods! #luckymom

3. If you spend a day with Cash, he will surely proclaim his love for you at least 15 times. He’ll also tell you a handful of times how “norgeous” (gorgeous) you are. Clearly, Daddy teaches him well.

4. When we stop to talk to anyone at all, Cash is sure to extend his hand for a handshake and say, “Nice to meetchu!” to whomever it is! He’s quite the personable character :).

5. Cash has more rhythm than a 3-year-old should ever have. His hip shaking rivals Shakira, I believe.

6. He is ridiculously smart and annunciates his words clearer than I do!! At the ripe old age of 3, he uses phrases like, “Mmmm, Mmmmmm!!! Delicioso!” and “What…is dat AMAZING smell, Mommy?” or “Let me give you an EPIC kiss!” Ahhh…love him!

7. It’s impossible to be in a bad mood around this little man. No joke…just try it. I have YET to meet one person (even the grumpy man in the elevator in Hawaii last December) that Cash CANNOT crack a smile on!!! He could make even Scrooge happy.

8. He is SUCH a sweet brother to his siblings. “Ruby, you’re so cute…you’re my princess,” or “Mars, I love you,” or “Maggots (Matix), you’re da BEST BROTHER EVER!!!”

9. He lives life totally unfiltered. In an instant, and no matter who is watching…he will break into song, dance, or even hop into character and start reciting lines from his favorite shows. If only we were all so free-spirited. I hope this “confidence” never leaves him, no matter what others might say thoughout his life :).

10. Cash’s world is happy, funny and totally RAD. I’m grateful as a mommy that my little man lives in this place 24/7!

I know each and every one of our littles have RAD inside of them. Tell me in the comments below what make yours so RAD…

PS – Cents of Style …you nailed it with this RAD shirtI’m buying 10…so we never run out :).

    Hello . I have a rad son too just llike yours he is a little older and I was wondering if you could help me figure out how to carb cycle for over weight children. He is thirteen almost fourteen. I am starting out with carb cycling and your shake. However not sure if carb cycling is safe for a growing child or where to start on his daily calories intake. Was wondering if you or chris had any advise. His doctor wants him to cut down and he has. If you could maybe write a blog about it. I love all your advise….shows…books and products. Thank you for your time.

    I have 3 rad boys and 1 rad girl. My youngest son (3) has downs syndrome and has hit all his milestones within the “normal” age range. I owe this to his two older brothers who have always helped been there to push him past his comfort zone and his little sister who doesn’t let him fall behind. I feel extremely blessed to have these four little people in my life.

    My little Logan will be four this week. He has cerebral palsy and has beat every odd!. The doctors predicted he would never walk or talk. They said he would need a feeding tube indefinitely. He talks, sings, runs (with braces) and only has his feeding tube a short time longer because hes still aspirating some fluids…but eats all table food. He has never once let anyone tell him he can’t do anything. He always has a smile. Even when the outcome for him isnt bright. He lives to the fullest and challenges me to be a better person every day. He’s a world changer!

      Wow an awesome post! Go Logan!!!

      Hi Heather: Thank you for sharing your little Logan with all of us – he’s definitely an inspiration! 🙂

    Cash is gorgeous! Those eyes! I am blessed through adoption with a 4 yr old little RAD girl and a 6 month old little boy who is also quite RAD himself. 🙂 lol My daughter does things each day to endear herself to me (as does the little guy) but the other day she was playing with my Kindle and was scrolling through the books that I have on there and she says.. “Mommy!!! I found it! Your favorite show!” It was your hubby! She found the book I bought for my kindle a few weeks ago. 🙂 lol They are always watching and paying such close attention!

    He looks just like you Heidi and Chis together, A perfect blend. Thank you for sharing your little man with us. You gave such an enjoyable description of him. I have 5 amazing Grandkids that make me tremble with joy. Each one has such distinct and wonderful character. My life is complete because of them. And THANK YOU for your inspiring show. My daughter and I and all 5 Grandkids watch Extreme Weight loss each week.

    CASH IS ADORABLE! Our youngest daughter is 6 now but still has the same spunk. Sings with all her heart, dances like nobody’s watchin and constantly stops what she’s doing to give me a kiss and say I love you mommy..I hope she never changes!! Thanks for sharing I just love the Powell Pack!!

    Cash is so adorable. My son is turning 14 in a couple of weeks. The years gone in the blink of an eye but the memories remain. My Colin is growing into a fine handsome young man. He is smart and kind, always doing well in school. Nothing he can’t do in life if he puts his mind to it. Love you and Chris and your show. It’s what I watch when I’m loging miles on my treadmill. I fortunately have never had a weight problem and believe diet is excercise is key to a long and healthy life. Recently discovered your carb cycling regime and I must say has taken my weight and fitness to a new level. You ROCK! Hug your babies close and cherish the moments!

    I think our boys could be friends. =) He reminds me of 3 1/2 year old son, Linus. I especially love hearing the funny phrases he says (“epic kiss”…that is priceless!). My little guy doesn’t know the Pledge of Allegiance yet, but he can recite a few Bible verses and quote several books or shows. And his current aspiration is to grow up to be a real knight. Don’t you love this age?! =)

    He’s Chris’s Mini Me!!! What a cutie!!! Wish we could all hold to that carefree spirit….just break out in song, dance, and skip whenever the mood hits us!!!!

  13. Michelle - August 22, 2014

    He is such a perfect little man, all your kids are! I’d love to meet ya’ll and shake his precious hand one day! Raising your kids right, Powell pack 🙂

    How come you just deleted my post that I sent about 20 minutes ago?

  15. Tracy - August 22, 2014

    Cash is a mini Chris! I love what you wrote about your little boy. I too am blessed with children. Three amazing and very RAD kids Masters 13 and 11 and Miss 9. I currently have a cast on my leg with some pins holding bones together in my foot…. long story.. BUT suffice to say, my three “monkeys” have spent a majority of their summer looking after mum… getting me cups of tea, taking care of so much around here (won’t even get started on how RAD my husband has been during this time – heart of gold – love him)… Miss 9 has become the best salad maker ever and boys will do anything I ask of them without complaining – seriously! The best medicine is all the hugs and kisses and cuddles I always get and of course, I love you mum.. I know they are pushing it though when they tell me how beautiful I look… even when I have not washed my hair in a week and/or have a few dots of pimple cream on my face!!!!! Anyway, love your show – always inspirational!

    Cash is the cutest little boy I love watching videos espically him singing the National Anthem!

  17. shannon - August 22, 2014

    When my daughter was about 4 I said, “I wonder what the colors are like in your world.” She skipped by and said,”they’re pretty mommy, really pretty.” She is now 23 and the colors are still really pretty.

  18. Claire Coleman - August 22, 2014

    Your son is absolutely gorgeous and amazing 🙂 Xx

  19. Mandi Potter - August 22, 2014

    I love this! My daughter has a super fun personality too that I hope she doesn’t lose! I might have to get her one…especially since I love the 80’s and the word Rad. My husband will just shake his head. 🙂

  20. Nina Hargrove - August 22, 2014

    Cash is a sweetie. Pie

  21. Haley - August 22, 2014

    I just adore this age!! Cash is so handsome. How I would love to meet this little dude! I don’t have any kids of my own yet but have been a nanny to many precious little boys-they hold a special place in my heart!

  22. Janet - August 22, 2014

    He is so adorable! Looks so much like Chris!
