The Rockets Won Out

Valentines to go to school

Well, the rocket Valentines won out for the party at Mother’s Day Out. I printed them, and taped lollipops onto the back. I am ashamed to say, there are no envelopes because I don’t know the names of all the kids in his class. How awful is that? Oh well. It’s just mother’s day out, right? RIGHT?!  We are also taking strawberry cupcakes for the class.


Completely unrelated, but precious photos nonetheless. I LOVE this kid!
listening intently

Today, in the car on the way to BSF, he told me that “Mommy precious.”  I about fell out of the moving car, it was so cute. We’ve also been listening to the Mamma Mia! soundtrack a lot lately and he begs me to play the songs “again! again!”  Future embarrassing factoid: he adores “Dancing Queen.”  Further future embarrassing factoid: I (loudly) sing along to it and there might also be a little bit of car dancing too. (Car dancing is when you’re driving a car, but you’re kinda trying to dance in your seat, too. This basically involves a lot of rear-end wiggling.)  So then, after he told me that I’m precious, he said, “Singing, mommy. Again.”  Apparently I’m not driving him too  crazy. Yet.

More cuteness: the obsession with Alvin & The Chipmunks continues. He talks about Alvin, Simon, and “Theedodore.” And with this obsession also comes another obsession with Peter Pan. This is ok with me, because I’m all for little kids who never grow up. 🙂  I’m still not grown up all the way and don’t plan on it any time soon. Jude likes for me to make up stories about Peter Pan to tell him when I put him to bed every night. We talk about mermaids, Indians, Lost Boys, and Captain Hook. Tonight he wanted to hear about the crocodile and “Cap Cook.”

Are you my mother?
