Our Kid is Awesome

Gareth gets to watch movies on Mondays while I do the laundry. (And lately more often as well, but we're going to do better about that this week.) He was sitting there happily watching his movie while I checked some blogs and whatnot on the computer. I went and told him that in fifteen minutes it was time for a nap. Then I proceeded to lose track of time until I heard his door shut. Yes, my child just turned off his movie and went to put himself down for a nap - at exactly the time I previously told him would be nap-time - all on his own. I doubt this will become a habit with him (though I certainly wouldn't mind). Some days he's so exasperating and some days, like today, he's awesome. I love awesome days - and could use a few more of them!

I am really missing seeing my sweet little Gareth. It about tore my heart apart to have to say "goodbye" to him on the phone last week! I don't know how much longer I can last without some face-to-face time with him--and Erin & Ryan, too.

Treasure up the good times, Erin!

That totally rocks. I might have to go out and buy him a present just for that. Especially since presents for kids have fallen off my radar ever since that grajon. Blame the school systems! In the meantime, I am telling everyone that my nephew could totally beat up their babies... although since all the people we know have 10 month olds, that really isn't fair. But cute-wise, Gareth totally rules. And that's the only beating up we would ever allow anyway.

That is pretty awesome! I'm still working on getting Evaline to realize that night-time is meant for sleeping.
