GROWTH #1: Not only is Little Man growing around here but so have other things. My Mimi gave Little Man some bulbs, soil and a pot at Easter to plant his own 'flowers'. Well, we planted the bulbs and watered the thing, and it grew! Imagine that!! I was actually shocked since normally, if I have anything to do with planting anything, it usually dies!

(PS even though little man has a sweat shirt on, it is not cold outside, it was in the high 80s...this was another time he picked out his own clothes)

GROWTH #2: For Little Man's birthday his Uncle Kirk gave him a 'grow your own butterflies' kit. Well just yesterday, we had 5 caterpillars come out of their cocoons and become butterflies. You can't see them in the picture but I promise they are in there. Little Man was super excited.

GROWTH#3: Unfortunately the growth I am experiencing in my world is the amount of laundry that never ceases to end. It's a vicious cycle.

(for the record, this laundry is clean...I would never air my dirty laundry on-line)

Little Man graduated from Pre-K...I can hardly believe it. And of course they had to put them in a cap and gown. I think the evil plan was to get the mom's to envision their child graduating from High School and get all choked up....and it worked of course. He has a 2008 tassel that he can hang from his bike handle bars...he is officially 5 going on 18. Standing at 46 in tall, he reminds me daily of how big he is. Just this morning, he was sitting on the stairs next to me telling me, ' Look how big I am Mom, my head goes up to your chinny-chin-chin!' Oh, how quickly it goes.

All By Myself...

On Saturday, we were planning on being around the house most of the day so we allowed Little Man to pick out his own clothes and get himself dressed. After a few minutes in his room, he emerged very proudly wearing this:
I guess I should be happy that he recognizes he needs to match but we need to work on over matching. We probably also need to establish what is appropriate for 90 degree weather.

Happy Mother's Day...

to all you mom's out there!
