Sean was so excited when I picked him up yesterday “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy!” he shouted (screamed, really) “I get Clifford!!!” It was our night to take the big red bag home for our night of family fun
Sean’s teacher often sends home family projects meant to encourage families to interact and do something, er, educational shall I say, rather than sit around the boob tube all night! Sean is more excited about some than others. Cutting and coloring are not really his deal but give this kid a stuffed animal or a guessing box and he’s over. the. moon.
So, last night we got to read a book, work on some patterns with dinos, put together a puzzle (which, I must brag, Sean is pretty good at!), and then draw a picture and journal about Clifford’s night. I, of course, forgot to take a picture of Sean’s drawing. He drew! TWO pictures!!!! Proud Mama right here.
Here he is working on the patterns. He loved working on them, especially since Connor didn’t have much interested and stayed outta the way.
As Connor cuddled on the couch with me this morning, this was the view that I was treated to. God gave us an absolutely beautiful sunrise this morning. I am so very thankful that this is where we are in our lives right now and that this is where we get to see our boys grow up.
Well, I finally gave in. I decided that the mop had gotten out of control and it was time. I love, love, love Connor’s curls right when he gets out of the tub. Unfortunately, the tight little pin curls only lasted for so long. After a while, they ended up looking, well, like this…
Daddy was there to help me through this big step. He caught the curls, and, later, my tears.
Connor does look so handsome. In hindsight, I’m ok with the haircut. I actually kind of wish I’d done it sooner. He just looks so big. So grown up. So not a baby.
It’s already 30 weeks into our 52 week project! This week’s theme was Euphoria.
Sean picked out this sucker at a candy story in Cody about, oh, a month ago. The poor kid has been patiently waiting for me to take his picture eating it. He’s been so patient about it he even quit asking to eat it. My poor deprived child.
We gave him some batman pajamas for his birthday. It never ceases to amaze me that he’ll fall in love with a character that he’s never seen. For example, he hates the Spiderman movies. But, he loves to run around throwing his Spidey webs all over the place. So, I thought what the heck, let’s give him a new super hero to love. And that he does. He bawled when I made him take these jammies off to wash them. After two days of wearing them. Solid.
So, what’s more euphoric than a newly minted 4 year old eating a gigantic lollipop while wearing his favorite costume? Not much in this mommy’s mind. Enjoy!
