I Thought The Day Would Never Come...

Today I lost Alex for about 30 minutes. No, not out in public. In our house. I had told him to go get ready for his nap and then 30 minutes later I realized that the house was awfully quiet but that I never went up to tuck him in. (Yes, I do understand that the previous statement indicates that my short term memory is whittling away but that's not really the point here).

Now, 30 minutes of quiet during Alex's wake time usually indicates trouble. But not this time. This time, I discovered him in the corner of Michael's room happily playing with God's greatest gift to mothers of little boys...Legos. For 30 minutes, he was alone. He was safe. He was happy. He was doing something relatively educational. And it was quiet. Blissfully, quiet.

While I don't have any pictures of that treasured moment, here are some shots of the little ones being "big" like their brother and sisters...doing school and practicing oral presentations.

I think I posted this one before...but look at that smile. It's worth 2 posts!

Every week, Alex has to do a presentation and don't you know Miss Lia is not going to be left out. We have no idea what she says but by golly she's gonna give her presentation too!

Alex, hard at work on his letters.
Doing school in PJ's. Is there any other way?
Alas, the silence of naptime has just been broken. Wonder what we'll get into next?


  1. My heart skipped a beat as I read the top part of this post because I know what my little "Taz" is capable of in 30 short minutes. Bet you were never so happy to see Legos in your life...

  2. Your little boy is growing up! Wish we could be sharing time on the soccer fields watching it happen!
