After giving the kids a bath tonight I was in the process of drying Evan off and noticed how big his hands and feet were! I felt like I was seeing him for the first time in months. I mean, I help dress the kid and put his shoes on all the time, but tonight his feet looked like they has grown three sizes. I was instantly saddened. When I informed Evan that his feet (and hands too) looked like big boy feet (and hands) he thought that was funny! He proceeded to inform me that this growth must have been due to the fact that he has been burping and farting a lot lately....and (pause).....sentimental moment over. Funny! I then informed him that I didn't think those things necessarily made him bigger, but that his mentality was more of an "adult male."
I should not be suprised about how big his feet look though. He is weighing in at 43 pounds and measures 45 inches tall. That puts him in the 5oth percentile for weight and 90th for height for his age. At least that is what the growth charts show. Personally that makes him 1/2 my weight and over 1/2 my height......HELP! He is only 5 yrs old!
We were driving to dinner the other night and Evan piped up from the backseat. This is what he said...
"Mom, I hate to tell you this, but one day when you weren't home the thing that holds all my toys on my wall (referring to the old locker we had against the one wall) fell on Brayden and I was thinking that next time I should have yelled FORE cause' that would make it OK!"
After discovering that J was in the room at the time and that the locker actually fell next to Brayden and not on top of him I could relax. Then I thought oh, s&^% not another golfer! Calgon take me away!

So, we were putting the kids to bed tonight and Evan tells Jason to get in his (Evan's) bed and "stay in there" until he is done getting his pj's on and Jason proceeds to say "I wish your mom would say that to me." And other things like how I used to be fun and blah blah blah. All I did was shoot J a look and Evan proceeds to say "Looks like you'll be sleeping with me tonight!" HILARIOUS!!!!! Oh, how I love my boys!!!!

So, Evan has homework assignments each week. It is a double sided ditto that at the top states a letter is for ... Example A is for apple, astronaut, etc. You are supposed to find four pics that start with the letter and then write to word under it. Well, I get home from work last night and go to check out how much Evan had gotten done and I see three pics with words.....a raccoon, a raft spider, and.......a HIPPO! A HIPPO? WTF? So, I climb into bed and J happens to still be awake so I state.... "R is for hippo....." He pauses, thinks, and then starts laughing. He said it was an indication of how his day had been. So, I guess I learned my lesson.....
always have mommy help with the homework!
Too FUNNY! LOL!
So, Evan has been bringing home pictures and letters that a girl at school has been writing/drawing for him. They started out innocent. Pics of a boy and girl holding hands, hearts, etc. I thought it was cute. I knew the girl from volunteering at school. In fact, the last time I was there she asked me if she could have a play date at my house and that her mother had already OK'd it. I thought that was interesting. Then after the kids had been dismissed for specials class Mrs. Hagel, the teacher informed me that Sam (short for Samantha) has asked her (Mrs. Hagel) to write down her phone number for Evan so he could call her. What? Ok, again I thought it was cute. Then yesterday I pulled ANOTHER picture out of Evan's backpack of a boy and girl holding hands. Ahh, cute? NO! I turn it over and clear as day it say I LOVE YOU! No joke!!!!! I could not believe it. He is only 5!!!!! Either this Sam knew how to spell all that out on her own or her parents had to help her spell it, and if they did what must they be feeling?
So, I showed it to J. We asked Evan about it and he does NOT get it. He said "oh that's a picture from my friend at school." We asked him if she was his girlfriend. He said yes, but not his only girlfriend. He informed us that Karli is his girlfriend too. And not only is Karli his girlfriend, but she is his #1 girlfriend. So if you are reading this Laura tell Karli not to sweat it, she is still #1...LOL!!!!
Oh, to be young again!
