Just a little post about a certain little guy who completely adores his Great Pawpaw and Great Grandma! What's not to love about a great grandparent who instigates the game of peek-a-boo to be played over and over a million times and lets you pretend his belly is a freeway to be used for racing your hot wheels. Oh...and the best part, one that doesn't mind being called "Grumpaw" because that's how it comes out when an almost 2 year old tries to say "Great Pawpaw".

I think it's safe to say it's true love and adoration when he crawled in the back of their SUV and tried buckling himself in as we said our goodbyes.

Made for each other...

first day

Kaden had his first day of Mother's Day Out today. An exciting day for the both of us. He met 7 new friends, played in the gymnasium, went for a walk, colored a picture, had music time, ate lunch, took a short 30 minute nap (I'm curious to see how our afternoon will go, he's a good 2 hour napper) and ate a little snack before I picked him up. I tried to cram as many things in the 5 hours I had to myself...met a friend for coffee and chatted for an hour and a half without any kids (it was awesome for both of us!), got my workout in, made a quick trip to Target, did a couple of loads of laundry, grabbed a quick bite to eat and then headed out to pick up my little guy. BOY WAS I GLAD TO SEE HIM! Pretty certain the feeling was mutual! Here's to a good first day...

short and sweet

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting. ~ Author Unknown.

They make everything sweeter. Everything more fun.

They give you Jelly Bellies all weekend long. They pack their suitcase full of toys they've collected over the months since they've seen you last that will entertain for hours on end. They let you splash around in mom's tub for 45 minutes 'cause they don't mind cleaning up all the little puddles you made splashing around. They let you play in their makeup bag and explore a new tube of lip stick. They let you pretend the bed is a trampoline. They share their frappuccino with you. They spoil you over and over and over again because that's their job! And really, we wouldn't want it any other way!

We are so happy Grandma was able to come back to Texas for a visit, even though it wasn't long enough. We miss her already and can't wait for her to come back again soon!
