I can hardly believe it. Three years and five months is all it took.
My Punkin? Got a complete haircut this morning! And with no tears!!!!
I guess you would have had to experienced his prior haircuts to really appreciate it, but just take my word, it wasn't a pretty picture. He screamed, wiggled, cried, jumped - if you can do it sitting in a barber's chair he did it. The girls cut their fingers & his ears, they left half uncut, scalped the rest. And I'm not even mentioning the Flow-Bee cuts. My2Sons - I owe you one! Thanks, thanks, thanks for the recommendation!
Does this mean he's all grown up? I'm thinking maybe so.
He and Daddy are eating a celebratory lunch at McDonalds and are then headed to Nanny's, where he is spending the night. I've washed dishes, walked on the treadmill, got dinner ready to go in the oven for tonight and have cleaned up a bit.
Yes, this is Blue Momma. No, I haven't been snatched by a body snatcher. Just working on that control and balance stuff. I told you I was going to. Hubby is coming home and we are going to have a Lord of the Rings marathon. I got the extended edition dvd set for Christmas and have yet to watch them so it is about time.
I take that back. I watched part of the first one, but Punkin was getting so interested in it and I was afraid some of the scenes might end up scaring him so I turned it off. But today? I plan to make it through all three. Maybe accompanied by a few Midori Sours and a little snuggling.
And yes, that's all! Do you realize how long those movies are? No time for anything else!
Oh, I almost forgot. Now is the time to leave if you don't want to hear me brag on my kid.
Yesterday when I picked Punkin up from MDO, instead of hearing how rotten he had behaved (though this is happening less here lately - finally!), I got to hear something good. They are going through the letters of the alphabet and then saying words that start with each letter. The teacher told me he did well and seemed to know a lot about his alphabet. She said he did better than any of the other kids that day. ~me beaming~
Can I just mention he is in the class with mostly 4 year olds and a few five year olds? He's the youngest kid by 6 months.
So I was very proud of my little man. Very proud. He's not just the little hellion that they see at first glance. He's a smart, fun, sweet kid who just happens to have more than his fair share of energy. OK, ten times his fair share. Point being there is more to him than misbehavior and I'm glad they are beginning to see that.
My kid? Rocks.
Damn. Now I'm missing him already. Maybe I'll go to Nanny's house, too......
