a few favorites

Today was “Muffins with Mom” day at Charlie’s preschool.  I took him to school and got to stay and play for a little while.  I saw Charlie’s favorite toy at school (a plane, not surprising), heard him sing songs and listen to a story, and of course, had a muffin (which he didn’t eat- no surprise there either!) They had made cute little presents: an angel necklace and this “I love you” canvas.  Such a sweet day!

Muffins with mom at preschool today!  So much fun.  #yesiamfiveyearsold
I love that I am five years old in Charlie’s mind. And I’m not sure where the favorite food came from, C has never had a hot dog.

Meanwhile, these two…

they’re just awesome.

And big brother hugs? LOVE.


outside with Charlie

I posted this on instagram and should have titled it “Charlie’s favorite things”.  He’s obsessed with those boots!  And he starts asking, “Can we go outside now?” the minute his feet touch the floor in the morning. This is sometimes a little difficult to manage with Sammy, feedings, etc. but I would so much rather he be asking to go outside than the dreaded, “Can I just watch something?”

Fishing at the Children’s Museum the other day.  We had a really great time with one of his little friends, and then he actually took a nap (without a fight!) when we got home.  Yay!  We may go to the museum every day 🙂

He loves music and singing, and for whatever reason he calls all instruments “trumpets”.  Maybe he will grow up and play the trumpet some day.   My favorite song that he sings these days is Jesus Loves the Little Children: instead of the line, “all the children of the world” he sings “Oh my goodness of the world!”  Ha.
