Some days I WISH that my kids were bigger. That they didn't need my constant attention (like when I'm going to the bathroom) or ask for me to make them a snack 10 minutes after eating :) hahaha But I KNOW for a fact that I'll miss these days when they're older and think I'm significantly less cool (yeah, right), so I try to soak it all in, make the most of it and remember to "let them be little".
Over Christmas break I was going through a serious "twinkle light withdrawal" so I made a "reading box" which has been a HUGE hit with all three kiddos (and their stuffed kitties).
I took an Amazon box, turned it on it's side and then taped the top open. Then I just poked holes randomly with a screwdriver and stuck the lights into the holes. At first I was all meticulous about it, and then I just started punching holes all crazy like. :)
I attached an extension cord, plugged them in and we were in business!
The box is especially fun at night and we've read several bedtime stories crammed in the box :)
Another "let them be little moment" was when Mason wanted to wear all his new superhero gear to the playground :)
Not going to lie - these pictures made my day. :)
When he's a big, tall 17 year old high school boy I want to be able to pull out these pictures and remember EXACTLY who he was at three and a half :)
Dave took the boys to the park last weekend and he snapped these pis for me. Love these of Luke on the monkey bars!
Heaven forbid he put down the bag of Doritos :)
Luke's turn to try on the gear :)
Which means Mason's turn to wear Luke's hoodie. hahaha
Happy Thursday, friends! Stay warm and snuggle those babies!! :)
Tomorrow is Friday Favorites! WOO HOO!!!
