Carson has had a growth spurt lately and is nearly as tall as Kate. And their faces look so much alike that I am getting the question everywhere we go now "Are they twins?" And you know what? I sometimes say "Why yes they are!"
The following "Because I Don't want to forgets" are all Carson this time. I love his heart and the boy that he is growing to become.
Carson has had his ups and downs with behavior at school like any red blooded 4 year old boy. We talk about making good choices everyday and what that looks like. And he has come such a long way and MOST days is on the coveted blue square (the highest behavior tier). A bonus is that he knows what the word disruptive means since his most common offense is "Disruptive during nap time."
One day I came in and he was on blue and as I was telling him how proud I was of his choices. He was quick to point out that almost all of his classmates were on a blue also that day. An unbelievable miracle! He said "I am so proud of all of them!"
Saturday morning I slept in a little while the kids watched a movie and played. We have 3 games that we play all of the time, Candy land, War, and Zingo. Carso came into the room and told me they were going to play Zingo and I told him that was great and to have fun. And he looked at me with a worried look on his face and said "with out you Mommy?" I had to tell him that I was ok sitting this one out. He was actually concerned that I would have hurt feelings if I wasn't included.
The other day I was asking him to please put on his shoes and he was telling me that he needed my help. I said "Carso! You put your shoes on by yourself at school all of the time!" and he said "yeah and I put them on the wrong feet all of the time because you're not there to help me!" That one cracked me up.
One last one.
We were walking out of Kroger yesterday and Carson was a couple of steps in front of me. This lady was getting out of her car and she said to me, "Did you just hear what your little boy just said?" and I thought "oh no what did he say now?" his favorite word is poop mind you.
She said "He just said "I am SO happy!" " She was smiling and laughing.
Once again, that little boy is mine all mine and I love him so much. :)
