I is for Independent

Today seems to be a day for all those giant leaps of independence in our house.......almost more than I can take.  I changed my work schedule so I am now off every other Wednesday so that I can participate in Parent and me Gymnastics and help with preschool (if the teacher ever gave a parent the time of day).  Today, I witnessed my nearly 3-year old blossom!  He didn't need me at all......just went, followed all the instructions, and lead the way when it came to mommy.  On our way back to pick up big brother from pre-school we stopped at the grocery store because I had a shopping list from my 5-year old.........celery, peanut butter, and raisins, because "we ARE making ants on a log, mommy!"  I by 'we', i mean him.  Did it all by himself........and we are registering for kindergarten today and we have our very first tee-ball scrimmage and.........all these milestones for me are almost too much!  Love these guys!!


  1. Love to see them grow. Hurts though to recognize they are pulling away and making their own choices.

    1. I find denial sometimes eases the pain! :)
