Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to the absolute 
BEST husband and Daddy ever!!!! 

TJ colored a picture at church for Tim and also answered some questions about his Daddy. The helper wrote down T's answers and when I read them, they all made me say 'awww' a little louder with each response. In case you can't see it well enough, it says:

                My dad is:          20 years old
                                          tall as a fridgerator 
                                          weighs 60 #
                Likes to wear:     same as me  
                My dad is special to me because we are brothers.
The one at the bottom was the one that broke me though. Yes, I cried. They are both father & son...and brothers.

Happy Father's Day to my husband who never ceases to amaze me with the way he takes care of his family. And who makes me feel like I could do anything. 

Happy Father's Day also to my dad whose total support throughout my life (thanks to you too, Mom!!!) has been incredible - even though I haven't said it near enough. And to my father-in-law as well! I am lucky to be a part of their family!

TJ is very much wanting a brother or sister. This is not a new thing by any means, but I don't think I've actually written about it before. He asks all the time when he'll "get one" and wants to know why everyone else has a brother or sister who is a friend to live with. And each time he asks, it kind of makes me very happy and very sad at the same time. I love being his mom and his playmate, but I know I'm not a kid...a little friend...or a sib. 

Lately, TJ has been asking Tim things like:
                           "Should we pretend to be twins? Or brothers?"
                           "Will I ever catch up to your age?"
                           "Can you grow your hair longer like mine?"
                           "What clothes do you have that I also have?" 
                           "Can we match and wear the same thing?"

So the last few days, Tim and T have been wearing similar outfits. The best part is, last night TJ asked if I had any silver rings I didn't want anymore. He told Tim he wanted to wear a wedding ring so that they could REALLY be twins and REALLY match. Oh my gosh, how sweet is that!!!

Then today in church, we went to pick him up from class and his teacher said they made a giant family class tree and all the kids put stickers up representing them and their brothers or sisters. TJ only had one sticker on his part of the tree. Apparently TJ didn't like having his sticker be alone so the teacher said he could put up a sticker to represent his dog too. So TJ did. Only...we don't have a dog either. Yet! Later, they drew pictures and TJ drew an awesome pic of our family (in which he is holding a dog). So guess what! We're continuing our dog hunt with extra gusto!!!!!!

I forgot to mention in the last post that TJ wanted to know the difference between the words 'grad', 'graduate'(verb), 'graduation' and 'graduate' (noun). We talked about it for about half an hour. This kid cracks me up!


Preschool Grad!

TJ has officially graduated from preschool. 

Do you remember the Full House episode when Michelle graduated from preschool? (Please tell me some of you used to watch that show. It was one of my favorites - ha!) Well I thought it was so goofy that they made a big deal about preschool graduation...and yet, now I get it. I really didn't think I'd cry, but Tim looked over at me while we were sitting in the auditorium and I had tears streaming down my face. It was really emotional! Full-day kindergarten is looming and I am in shock that it's so close. (But luckily, TJ is pumped about it!)

Here are some pictures of Mr. T getting his certificate. I put it in a frame on the kitchen table when we got home and he was very proud of that.

And we are proud of him for playin' hard, workin' hard and workin' on growing up!
