Trip to the Dentist

You know they say "Out of the mouth of Babes." My 5 year old can make me laugh like no other sometimes. Today on our way to the Dentist, which is an hours drive, he decides he needs to go to the bathroom. I keep telling him that he is just going to have to wait because I knew that he went before we left the house. Lo and behold we run into road construction. At that point the frustration level starts to rise because you want to make it to the dentist in time for the appointment and you have a child that says he needs to go to the bathroom.

Would you believe there sat a Port-a-John in the median?! Now, my son knows what those are. Just so happens that we have to stop at a Stop Light and that puts us right beside the Port-A-John. He sees it first thing and I hear, "Mom, if you will let me out, I will go to the bathroom over there and be back before the light changes." This child misses Nothing!

PB & J

Thank goodness for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!! If it were not for the school cafeteria oftering these sandwiches as an alternative to the regular lunch menu, my child would probably starve throughout the day. As much as I try to vary his palette for food, he remain steadfast in his choice of foods that he will eat.

I wonder if I showed him how peanut butter was made, :), if he would change his mind. HAHA.

I love my child!!!!

Now I am starting to feel the age coming on. When I look at my son and he is unaware, I wonder where the time has gone in the last five years. He is looking so grown up and I know that he will only continue to grow more each day. Watching him walk into the Kindergarten class on Wednesday without even turning around for a hug was a moment to remember. He may not have needed a hug, but I did! I just left him alone. I did not want to make a scene just because I did not get the hug that wanted. I am just happy that he felt secure enough in the surroundings to not be upset.

We just try to raise him the way that we feel the Lord wants us to. The bible says in Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. That is what are trying to do. We want him to be able to be a child, but he can also be a role model to those around him.

Bringing home the baby just made me realize how big he had become. To us he was still small, but with someone smaller in the house made him look that much bigger.

Baby girl is growing more each day. She is so much fun to watch. She has started laughing and squealing and trying to roll over. I know that she will be another little comedian in the house!
