Cole

Over the past few months Cole has gone from running FAR away from girls to chasing them. This is what he told me he made in art today...


Our favorite line from The Sandlot comes out of my mouth "You are killing me Smalls...", I say this whenever he does something that makes me want to bang my head on the wall. I asked WHY he was kissing Walker in the photo and he says, "Because she is cute, and I am going to marry her." And he has this smile on his face, it is SO completely innocent and sweet that I don't know whether to hug him or change the subject quickly. I do have to have the conversation with him about being cute versus being creepy. Do not be the creepy boy that chases girls all the time!! Then my whole line of questioning began about WHAT he talks about with his friends, closely followed by what is appropriate behavior and what is NOT. It is such a fine line because I WANT him to be able to tell me about girls he likes and what he is thinking, I just did not think it would start in Kindergarten!! Then I remembered back to my Kindergarten days. I (like most the girls in the class) had a crush on Jimmy Bennett. I am sure my mom had to listen to me talk about Jimmy though middle school.

Maybe it is less about Cole and more about me in my learning to let go a bit. To come to terms with the fact that I am not the center of his universe like when he was a baby but rather he is coming into his own by letting go of me a bit and I of him. OR maybe this is ALL because he is his FATHER'S child, and Brian's karma is coming back to haunt us all!

Love & Light,

Stacy


Cole doing homework today.

I am not quite sure where the time has gone.


But he will always be MY baby.

  4. So Sweet ! Joe's best friend in pre-school was a girl named Bridget. I saw her a few years ago. Soooo gorgeous ! But I think it is great when a young boy looks at a girl as a friend or sweetie. He is sensitive and that means a lot.
