You Know They've Grown Again When

Posted On // 8 comments
Should've started this list long ago. I've thought up alot of snippets about this in my head through the years.

My favorite anecdote of knowing they've grown again happened last summer.
We were all (my sister, niece, me and 2 boys) watching the weekly music video countdown. The kids were very interested watching the show with mouths open, waiting for song #20 up to the number 1 song of the week. Nobody stood up and wandered around unless there were commercial breaks.

The last time the kids watched with mouths open was for the nth repeat of some disney movies. We've definitely graduated from that now.



For today, i know they've grown again because:

1. One son went to grandma, and the other stayed behind.

Used to be that, if grandma orders them to come over, both come over. Now 1 son has grown enough brains to decline.

2. Son celebrated his birthday with friends on his own.

3. When I asked son to buy soda, he bought, got glasses, poured, and gave me my own serving. And I didn't ask. What a nice kid...

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I'm not sure if I should be on this site or one of your other ones. (let me know) But I totally am jealous of your little man behaving like such a gentleman. I thought our boy was doing such a great job then he just went and kneed husband in the junk. oh, well. Also, I haven't even dusted off my treadmill yet. Tomorrow. Maybe....

Oh wow, kneeing... we don't have a man in the house so I haven't seen that one...

Now that you've mentioned it, *I WISH* they'd knee their spermdonor

Enjoy the naughtiness, when they're grown, they're plain boring.

Can't say if your husband will enjoy it though, teehee...

Shh, don't let mine know they have options when it comes to visiting relatives. :-( You've trained that boy well if he's serving you in a glass. I'm impressed. Care to give mine a lesson.

Casey said...

Aww, I can't wait until my kids are old enough to even sit through a Disney movie. Now they wander away anytime they see something shiny. Your kid sounds nice. See if he wants to visit me in FL and serve drinks by the pool, Jamie won't bring me anything. Does he mix cocktails yet?
