I should preface this with the reason Carter is helping me mop the kitchen floor is because he dumped an entire glass of orange juice on it. I was trying to swat a fly and he thought by dumping juice on the floor, it would help kill the fly! That boy!
He is Mr. Independent these days.....wants to help with everything, including hanging curtain rods. Sorry, you're not quite tall enough yet buddy! He loves helping me cook but is mostly limited to helping me mix things in bowls since he obviously can't get near the stove.
We went to meet his pre-school teacher today!
I was so nervous although I couldn't quite articulate why. I am super excited because Carter's little friend Caden is going to be in the same class. I think that will really help him adjust. The teacher seems nice. The classroom is HUGE and filled with all kinds of things Carter likes. His official first day is Monday! I almost cried today thinking about how big he's getting. Where has the time gone?
In unrelated news, I wanted to show you what a steal of a deal on clothes I got from Gymboree. I spent $100 and got 11 things!
I had a 20% off coupon which helped. I also now have $50 in gymbucks to use next month! You know I love a deal. All of the clothes except one shirt are all for next summer. It's so much better to buy off season. That is definitely where the deals are. Okay, good night!
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
