At 4:30 a.m., I heard Jonah screaming in his room. It was a very different sounding scream and I actually thought he had fallen out of his bed. So, I rush down the hall and this is what takes place.


Me: Baby, what's wrong?


Me: (Kneeling down next to him) Jonah, what's wrong Buddy?

Jonah: (wide awake) Mommy, you love me?

Me: (Running my fingers through his hair) Yes, baby! Of course I do!

Jonah: TELL ME!!!

Me: Jonah, I love you so much!

Jonah: I love you Mommy! Night-night! (Rolls over and closes eyes!)

Sometimes I guess we all just need to be reassured that we are loved!!! What a sweet, sweet moment!!

Dental Visit #2

Last Thursday, we all loaded up and headed to Jackson for dental appointments. It is always fun for me to visit that office. I basically grew up working there. I started when I was 15 and left right after Dan & I were engaged. The people there are such a huge part of my life and I love seeing them. I also love taking Jonah there to visit. They knew me long before Dan and Jonah. So, it is fun to share this stage of my life with them. Jonah started the day by watching Dan & I both have our teeth cleaned.

Then, Shellie took him over to her opertory and cleaned Jonah's teeth. He did awesome. I'm so proud of him for being such a big boy. This was his second dental visit and he nailed it.

After he finished his appointment, he watched Peter Pan on the floor of the break room. He was happy to show Peter his new toothbrush. He also ran Kristi WILD chasing him around the office. He made friends with her and they played non-stop!!

He had a very serious conversation with Charles. He looked at him so serious and barely cracked a smile. I'm not sure what he was thinking but it was so funny to see him so serious with him. He also looked at him and said "You know Docka Russ?" The kid really does love his Dr. Russ and thinks all doctors are her best friend! He went there to visit the first time when he was less than a month old. You can read about that here.

P.S. For all you OSHA peeps out there, they always wear gloves but Mrs. Shellie just treated Jonah like he was here own little boy. That's why I love it there so much. They really are family to me!!

The joys of parenting Superman!!!

Preschool Pajama Day

I was so excited to get the memo handed out at Preschool about Pajama Day. My only concern was how to convince my child that it was okay to wear his PJ's to school that day. He is some what obsessive about certain things and clothes are one of those things. He thinks in order to lay in the bed you must wear Pajamas. He also thinks that if your foot touches the outside concrete then those pajamas must be off. So, we had to start prepping him a few days in advance.

Since they were studying bears that week, all the kids could bring a bear with them to school. As you all know, Jonah's favorite stuffed animal is Lammy. We only have one bear. So, he took Brown Bear to school with him. It was interesting to hear the other moms say their kids didn't have a bear either. Times sure have changed. It used to be that ALL kids had a teddy bear. There are just so many options out there now.
Jonah went in to show Mrs. Alisa his bear then over to Mrs. Tan so she could see too. The boys were all hovering around the teachers while the girls giggled and pranced around like they were at a slumber party. It was so cute.

Angie was there with her camera too. The two of us seem to end up at every event and usually have a camera. (Usually? Umm, try always!) Hayden wanted to see what picture she took. All the kids are really into seeing their picture on the screen these days.

Look at these sweet little girls having a blast with the princess blanket. Dan was pleased to discover Jonah didn't fight them for the blanket. It seems his princess obsession may be coming to an end.

The teachers had the kids leave their stuffed bears on the tables and then come to the other side of the room for a bear hunt. There were bears hidden all over the room. Those kids went crazy searching for the bears.

Jonah gave hugs and kisses to all of his teachers before heading out for the day. Normally, he only has two teachers in his class but since Mrs. Tan is leaving (sniff, sniff), Mrs. Shannon was in the class observing before she takes over later this week.

Have I ever mentioned just how much I love Jonah's preschool? Man, those people are so sweet and he learns so much there!!!
