 I like stuff like this because I am a GIRL and I like PRETTY things

He couldn't sleep at nap time because he...

"Just can't wait any longer mom. I can't. I made this and I know you will love it and I have to give it to you now. My teacher said I could give it to you NOW or Sunday - because I know Sunday is Mom's day, a day just for moms. Why is mom's day always on a Sunday? I wish it was today. Why isn't there a kid's day mom? Is Sunday JUST for you? Yeah, she said I could give it to you NOW or Sunday - mom's day - but I really, really, really, really, want to give it to you now because I can't wait. Waiting is hard mom. Can you not wait? Because Sunday is YOUR day. I bet you can't wait. Here (shoves small gift into my hand) open this!!"


So, I opened it and he was right, I loved it.

I could just imagine his little hands working on the details.


And this is just the sort of thing a mom like me holds on to and cherishes...


"See mom, see - this button is kinda gray. Do you like gray? This one is pretty because it has brown AND white. Two colors mom - see? You like stuff like this because you are a girl and you like pretty things, huh? Can you put it on? I stuck this sharp part on the back right here so that you could wear it! But I had to be careful 'cause I'm 5 and I usually can't touch sharp things. But my teacher helped me and this was a special time. Do you love it mom?"

I ooh'ed and ahh'ed over it and put it on and we took lots of pictures and he smiled and I smiled and we talked about dandelions and squirrels.

And that was our afternoon.
