He’s growing up…

I have been telling Nicholas for months to STOP GROWING. He’s not listening. I have begged, pleaded and even threatened to strap bricks to his head, all to no avail. No matter what I say or do, my baby boy is growing up and loving it! He simply can’t wait to be “big to the ceiling” – his words not mine. Like most kids he is already anticipating many grown up activities, most notably, “When I get big I’m gonna drink beer and watch hockey.” GREAT! Definitely a Canadian kid. Another favourite of mine “When I turn 8 can you please buy me a monorcycle (motorcycle) Mom? I’ll let you ride it with me.” I’ve told him repeatedly that I will never buy him a motorcycle. Ever!

It seems every time I look at him his face is a bit more mature, he appears to be a bit taller and more grown up. Each day I am losing a tiny bit of my baby boy. AT the same time though, I am gaining a sweet, happy-go-lucky, stubborn, insistent little man who is so much fun. He loves to play ball and read and colour and make crafts. Most of all he just loves spending time with his Mommy, Daddy and Sissy.While I miss my baby and sometimes feel sad because he is our last, I am so happy to be able to be home with him, spending time with him, teaching him and just enjoying all life’s little stages, well most of them anyway!
