025

He insisted on both macaroni & cereal for dinner… and made it through half before completely passing out at 7 pm.  You know, he doesn’t NEED a nap anymore.

He has never had one, but he’s been referring to Jolly Ranchers as Cherry Spit, we’re not really sure why, but he does have a point.  They do make your spit taste like cherries.

And counting in Spanish to cinqo before starting back over at dos.  Thank you Toy Story 3 and Buzz Lightyear’s Spanish mode for that one.

He is enamored with the tree this year and helped me decorate while Dave was at work.  Aside from the huge clusterfuck of ornaments at his level that we had to gently move upward, it looks pretty.  He is also enamored with the thought of Santa bringing toys to his house and asks me daily if tonight is the night.  I assured him that I would make it known when the big man intends to make an appearance.

There are days I feel like the luckiest mom in the entire world… and some days he’s questioned every single word out of our mouths and it’s the most maddening thing in the world.  But most days, it’s the lucky.

Adorable photo and I think you summed up parenting perfectly. Some good, some bad - but mostly good!

Scrappy and love it! said...

My 3 year old, keeps asking me if it is over....like is Christmas over. I told him it will not be over until Santa comes to our house. But still everyday he asks....is it over? Too funny.

Cute! I loved those days when they fell asleep at the table! That's when I liked my kids the best, when they were ready to carry up to bed!...but he's very adorable, so maybe I would have let him sleep at the table a few minutes longer :)

I just love these pictures,he is so precious. My son will be 3 this Friday and he does the same thing. We have to try and keep him awake while he is eating so he doesn't choke or fall out of his chair, it's so funny.

That is great photo. Oh the irony - kids don't think they need naps, and us moms BEG for them for ourselves!

I so LOVE that pic, he is so stinkin adorable! I totally hear ya on the no nap thing, I just keep telling myself that in another 10 yrs. I won't be able to get my little one out of bed so I guess a cranky toddler who falls asleep in random places isn't too bad.
