It really makes me a happy mom when people outside of the family compliment my kids! When my daughter started preschool I got a note sent home on the first day that said she was a very polite and enjoyable little girl. I was so proud of her! On Monday my son graduated from the Early Intervention program through Help Me Grow and joined the "real" preschool. When I arrived to take him home the teacher's aide was waiting at the door to tell me what a pleasant little boy I had. They said they really enjoyed having him there. Yeah! Two kids that I got compliments on when they started preschool. It makes me feel like I must have done something right. They aren't always angels at home, but at least they know when and where to behave. :) I'm a happy mom!

Yesterday my baby boy turned 3 years old! I can't believe that my "baby" is already 3. He is such a bright spot in every day. He is one of those kids that has a very animated face and every conversation is so much fun with him. He started talking late and has had 1 1/2 years of speech therapy. He's graduated from the program now and starts "real" preschool on Monday. I'll never forget the day he was born because my midwife was on vacation. I got a horrible woman instead who made his birth awful. It's taken this entire 3 years to not get really angry every time I think about it. I still don't like what happened, but I've got to let it go. Thankfully my baby boy came out healthy, happy and a much better sleeper than his older sister! I've enjoyed him so much and I'm so glad that he's mine!

I grew up with a sister. I never had a brother like my daughter does. I realize now how nicely sheltered I was from the differences in boys and girls. Until I was in high school I never realized exactly what the differences were in girl body parts and boy body parts. Yes I knew that boys had a "pee-pee", but I didn't realize there was anything more to it than just that, if you catch my drift! My poor daughter will always know what boys look like and what the difference is. I wish I could shelter her from knowing so young about boys and girls. Perhaps if I had a brother when I was little I would feel differently about it. Somehow I just think in this area of her little life ignorance would be bliss! Especially for her mommy!

I've definitely had enough snow this week! We have had 12 inches of snow fall this week and they are calling for another one to two inches tomorrow. Enough already! We had such a mild winter up until now. I guess we're paying for it. My husband plows snow, so he loves it, the white stuff means green stuff to him! I don't like it because while he's out plowing I'm stuck in the house. I did manage to get a lot of cleaning done which I guess is a good thing, although it's pretty boring. My son turns 3 years old next week. I can't believe my BABY is growing up so fast. He's turning into a little boy and it makes me so sad. There are no more diapers or bottles at our house. We're even thinking about getting him a big boy bed to replace his toddler bed. Where does all the baby time go?
