Cage got his first official report card today. It listed all the reading, writing and math skills he’s mastered and it was pretty impressive! Kiddo has some solid (pre) reading skills and can count like crazy. Just gotta work on his handwriting, which is not surprising since he writes like he’s trying to slay paper with the pencil and his scissor work us down right frightening. I’m thinking it’s just a fine motor skills development thing, either that or he’ll be a doctor one day
So there’s no way to sugar coat that we’ve lost a lot if family lately, Grandma Fid in January, Grandpa Dixon the following week, then great aunt Sylvia, my uncle Bruce and then just this week my Aunt Lynne. It’s been rough.
So this morning Cage randomly asks “Mommy, how does your heart feel?” Which leads to quite the in depth conversation for a 3 year old. We talked awhile and he was all smiles as he talked about playing with Poppa and sharing snacks with Gram. He could tell me they aren’t here anymore, but he just kept talking about the good stuff.
So I tried to do the same. It still sucks, it still hurts, but talking about good stuff certainly helps.
I’m thinking my boy might make a good counselor one day, either that or a superhero – maybe both?
That’s what I’m deeming today to be seeing as we picked up Grandma Dixon, then drove down to hang with Grandma Sparks for the day. It was great to chat with Jean on the long drive and now I know where Adam gets his sense of humor from. And Cage entertained us all while Jean and Evie got caught up. They had some pretty good stories, but then again they’ve been friend for 5 decades!
Easter started yesterday with an egg hunt at Heatherwood Middle School. Really it’s just a dash Andover in about 20 seconds, but Cage loves it. Grandma came over after and gave him bubbles in his basket and had her working the bubble gin for a solid hour.
Today we did baskets at home before heading to Laurie’s where he had his own personal hunt – so spoiled!
What’s a puppy to do after playing with a 3 year old all day? Build herself a pillow fort and pass the heck out.
She was snoring within seconds after this picture.
I’ve got to write these down before I forget…
Mom- “Cage stop picking your nose.”
Cage- “I’m not picking my nose, I’m cleaning it with my hands.”
Dad- “Cage what are you doing?!?!”
(As Cage has completely flopped over awkwardly in his car seat)
Cage “I’m dong this!” (And continues to awkwardly flop while looking at us like we’re crazy)
Mom- “so do you want a little sister like Abby?”
Cage – “Yeah, her name is Juk and if she’s a boy she’ll be Leonardo”
(He’s got his dad’s child naming skills)
As if having a blog pretty much devoted to one child wasn’t bad enough, I had to add these vidoes of my brilliant child too. Yes – I know he’s not brilliant – but he’s dang cute!
123′s (and he even said 13 & 14)
And the ABC’s
Love this Days of the Week song!
Cage definitely got his Uncle TL’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles obsessed jean. They are his absolute favorite right now, which works out fine since he makes a pretty handsome turtle.
Even slept with it on
We’re constantly in masks fighting the foot clan, all in a day’s work.
We got to see Yo Gabba Gabba again and it was just as good as the first time. Seriously – they are tied with Caspar Babypants!
Yep, we’re that into toddler rock
Me – “you’re amazing”
Cage – “No I’m not!”
Me – “then what are you?”
Cage – “really really super super good!”
