About a Boy

I was scrolling through my blog and realized that if you are new here, and didn't see my sidebar, you might think I have one kid. My recent posts have been adorned with pictures of my pretty baby girl and the one recent post about the boy was about something negative that happened. I'm a bad mom. Ok, maybe not bad, but Nate deserves a little face time too....and a little update since I have been lacking in that department.

 I talked recently about my indecision about sending him to pre-school. I know he needs it, but something was just holding me back. I decided to listen to my mother's intuition and make a compromise. I will be starting him in January instead of now or waiting until next year. I felt it would be enough time for him to get a little older and more ready to handle a big school like atmosphere. I know he looks so grown up, but I felt like he needed a little more time to mature first....and stop saying "poopy". Does that ever stop with boys? Please say yes.

 He is my little comedian. The things he says and the faces he makes are hilarious. I see so much of myself as a kid in him. I probably drove my mother insane now that I think about it. He is spunky and imaginative and the things he's been coming up with lately have me laughing out loud, even if it's sometimes inappropriate and my laughing only encourages it!
 His hair was getting a bit unruly so we took him for a "trim". I'm pretty sure kid's hair stylists (can they even be called that???) have no clue what a trim means. She started cutting and he had a mullet. She cut the sides short but left the back long and it looked ridiculous. So we did it. I had her cut the back and sides even shorter. He officially had his first real "boys cut". It will grow back, so no tears or reprimands over the loss of the curls please. He looks so different with it short that I almost didn't recognize him when I went to pick him up yesterday!
 So there you have it. A little taste of Natey. If you want a bigger taste you can totally come over and babysit. Mama needs a night out!

  2. If you read my blog, you'd think Ariana didn't exist... simply because I am with the little two 24/7 while she's in school. I hope she never look back and gets bitter.

  3. I like his new look :) Very big boy!!

    Don't stress too much about the pre-school thing. I think he will amaze you with how ready he is. Its amazing watching them learn and understand about all different sorts of kids and all the different ways to play and sit and learn. I bet he will LOVE it!!!

  5. Oh my gosh - I love that kiddo! He cracks me up with all those faces!

    Though I do (sniff) miss those curls!

    And if it wasn't "poopy", it would be something else equally mortifying in public, trust me.

    Your kiddos got some great cuteness genes!

  6. He really needs to model for Baby Gap. You guys make some cute kids!!

    I'm worried every time I drop T off at school just wondering what awful things are coming out of her mouth. Just the other day she told her aunt "That's a bunch of crap!"

  7. Man, those are some cute kids you have! I love his hair both ways and NO boys never outgrow potty humor. Case in point: Grown Men.

  8. Wowzers! That handsome boy is SOMETHIN' ELSE!!

    I think the compromise is a good idea. Just a smidgen more time for everyone to make the transition and something New in the New Year.

    Me loves this Natey, with or without curls!

  9. He's adorable, whether he has curls or not. When we get past the poopy stage, I'll let you know. E is 9 now, and she's still into potty humor. Lovely.

  11. I think pre-k in January sounds good. I really won't have a choice if Aidan qualifies... he'll start next fall, which scares the crap out of me!! But at least in his preschool, the word "poopy" will probably be acceptable! haha Actually, Aidan will probably be one of the more verbal kids, which is interesting.

    Anyway, diggin' his new 'do. With or without curls, he's still crazy Natey!

  12. Seriously he is a gorgeous little guy. My son needed time to grow up a little bit more too so I kept him home for JK, and sent him for Sk instead, and I never regretted it. I just knew he needed more time.

  16. He is too cute. I love it. No, they never outgrow saying poopy or thinking that saying it is funny. SM loves to burp..and loud. Drives his sisters crazy.
