i did something unbelievable today. something extraordinary. something that came much too quickly (as many, many people warned me it would…). i signed my baby boy up for preschool. PRESCHOOL. i know, i know, it’s not like it’s kindergarten or anything (i have quite a few friends dealing with this life changing phenomenon at the moment and i can tell you, it’s not like that…)
but it’s preschool. school. a place where my baby will first venture off on his own without me to experience the world in his own way; to make new friends; to learn and discover and enjoy all the world has to offer; and to take his first real sip of independence (!) and he’s ready. he’s so ready it’s not even funny. i’m just a mom talking, but i’m pretty sure owen was born ready. and it truly does seem like just yesterday that i had this little bug to cuddle…
and in the blink of an eye, my little bug is now a ‘big’ boy (because it’s death by owen if you call him’ little’ in any way, shape or form…!), a boy’s boy, a big brother…such a great big brother. nothing has been more fun than watching them grow together and love on one another…i digress..
(*some of my new most favorite-est pictures…)
i have a boy who loves to create…(or perhaps it’s the enticement of another mess making opportunity? the jury’s still out…) and to discover…
who gets his occasional dose of spoilage…after all, who doesn’t like to get spoiled? and nothing makes a 3 year olds eyes sparkle more than when you tell him he gets his very own bottle of vintage orange soda pop! 🙂
a little man who exercises his right to refuse to be photographed (fyi : owen = my HARDEST subject!)
i’ll give you fair warning. we’re excited at our house for the start of the main event, for the exploration to begin, so you can be darn certain their will be first day of school pics come september!
