It only takes a minute

For multiple projects to occur while I am on the bike trainer.  In the span of about 45 minutes, this is what I found.

 The boy loves his Legos. And his new Lego journal the Tooth Fairy left him this week.

This is Georgia, our black lab.  I'm not really sure why she has a yellow face or a really thick front leg, but he was adamant that it had to be that way. 

 And this is the model airplane that he tried to put together by himself.

 But he told me that he used the bag so he didn't get glue on the table.  At least he's conscientious, or terrified of what I would do to him if he messed up the table.

Lesson learned for Mommy - spend less time on the trainer or lock up the art supplies. At least he wasn't glued to the TV. So small victories.

And summer camp is officially on

And I haven't cried yet. This big guy left for two weeks away with the grandparents (one week with each pair). Please pray for them, because J and I are going to live it (well go to work, sleep, and get projects done you can't do as well with someone asking you 500 questions a minute).

Still loving the snaggle-tooth grin. He's only been gone an hour and I've actually posted two times. Woohoo!


Someone's Growing Up Too Fast

About two weeks ago, Cooper announced on a Monday morning that his tooth was loose.  Are you kidding me, he's only five.  How in the heck did this happen already.  He did admit to using his teeth to loosen his Legos.  Boys will be boys.

So, over the course of the last week, we could see his adult tooth coming in, so the serious work of getting the baby tooth out started.  See how crooked it is sitting.

We have been working with for the last several nights to get it out, and finally last night, we had success.

He actually pulled it himself. Surprise for all of us.

The toothless wonder finally was able to put his TarHeel Tooth Fairy pillow to work.  He promised me that he believed in the Tooth Fairy before bed last night.  And he was happy to get a Star Wars lanyard as his gift. Gotta love a flexible and all-knowing Tooth Fairy.

Happy 5th Birthday Dear Cooper

Dear Cooper,

Where have 5 years gone?  It seems like you were just a chubby cheek baby not so long ago.  You are one funny but independent (hard-headed kid).  I never know what you are going to say or do next, but it is guaranteed to either make me laugh or aggravate me.  You never fail on that front.  You are smart and give your JK teacher a run for her money, but your afternoon teacher (K) keeps you in line.

You haven't had your checkup yet, so I'm not sure of your height/weight.  But it's safe to say you are head taller than all the other 4/5 year olds.  You continue to be the gentle giant looking after the smaller kids.  I hope that is a role you always keep.  You are often still a love bug, which your Dad and I try to remember to take every hug, kiss, and cuddle every chance we get.

I'm going to try to remember to ask you these questions for the next couple of years.  I can't say I was surprised at any of the answers, but you often had your funny twist.
