growing up......fast

This guy has been going through a lot of changes lately.  And he is handling them like a champ.
I will say this brings to Bill and I an easy "time for bed" routine.  He is finally tired
enough to go to bed.....................before  we go to bed.

so

All day preschool.  Has not had a problem since he started.  It has been one full week.
And he loves it.  Gets up.  Gets ready.  Gets out.  Every morning.
For that I am thankful.

At school they "nap" for 30 minutes while the teacher has lunch.
They have a mat to rest on with a sheet and a small blanket.
Now here is a kid that stop napping at 14 or 15 MONTHS old - having to nap.
He comes home everyday and tells us that he closes his eyes and pretends he
is sleeping.  Smart thinking coming from a 5 year old.
He must need it I imagine.  They have very full days.  The go to PE some days.  They
to to Art.  They go to Music.  Just like the bigger kids.  And best of all
they go off to eat lunch in the cafeteria.

So speaking of the cafeteria.  Garrin came home and asked if he could buy
lunch at school.  Now personally, I didn't even realize the preschoolers could buy
lunch.  We have been packing him an adorable little lunch in his adorable -
ok it's not adorable - it's Toy Story.......lunchbox everyday.  So we gave him
some cash for lunch.  And he bought it.  Skettie (spaghetti), chocolate milk and
chocolate pudding.  And he was thrilled.  He asked if he could always buy lunch.
We told him NO because Connor buys like 3 lunches everyday and we are going broke....
We will have to see about that one.

He had his first show and tell yesterday too.
HE and only he, was going to choose the item.  And with careful
consideration....he chose...
a lemon.
Don't ask, because I don't know............
On the way home, he told Bill that he explained to everyone that lemons
have seeds and you can plant them...to get more lemons.
Naturally...Wonder if he told everyone we stole  picked it off our neighbors
tree?  I am guessing yes...he's a pretty honest kid.

And if all this didn't show me what a big boy he is getting to be,
other than the fact that he is so flipping tall now.....
He has two loose teeth.
Two.
WTF????  Is it time for that already?
ugh....that means the start of the Tooth Fairy lies all over again.......
