A big day, a very big day

It seems that no matter how hard you try (oh, I have tried) your kids decide they want to grow up, despite your efforts to keep them small.
Addison will be five in four months, he will have his kindergarten mini day this week, because he will be attending school in the fall, and this weekend he decided he did not need his training wheels anymore.




We went to breakfast Saturday morning, and I was watching the three of them, soaking it in. There was no fighting, no complaining, just silence.
I told them I wanted them to stay tiny, just they way they are now.
Addison looked up, with a sweet, sweet smile and said, " Mama, I goota go poop, and you have to come with me to check my butt cheeks. Come on! Let's go!"
Hmmmm, maybe a bit of growing up would be nice. Just a bit though.

That is so cute--I have teenagers and I would love to shrink them back down to a younger age when all we had to worry about was checking their butt cheeks. So cute!

Oh my gosh, that last sentence had me laughing out loud! Hope you all had a wonderful day today.

My Lilly wants the trainers off to, but I'm not ready! Look out, I cried at her kindergarten round up.

Way to go Addison - and the bathroom comment is hysterical - I hear it all the time. Too bad they couldn't selectively grow up.

No training wheels....Yeah Addison!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

Oh, I know what you mean! I'd love to keep my kids little, too, but potty trained. Little, but potty trained sounds good to me!

Congrats on the bike riding! Being an avid cyclist, I can understand the sense of freedom that comes with being a two-wheel master! Yippee!

"Kids say the darndest things" eh? Don't worry too much, tho, it just gets more and more fun with each new stage. There's a lot more to enjoy!

Oh, how sweet! Checking the butt cheeks! My daughter still has trouble getting clean... and she just turned 6. She also just got that John Deere bike for her birthday! Weird huh? BTW - check out my giveaway on my blog...

Katie - it is so weird to see Ad with no training wheels - it was just a few short weeks ago that Jeff mentioned "Hey, I bet when you go home Addison will not be riding with training wheels!"... and I see now, just how close he was to the truth!
What a milestone! Bittersweet for you I'm sure...

They are precious, kids I mean! I am so impressed that he is on 2 wheels. Sammy is no where near yet.
