I had to post this picture that I captured of my son this afternoon at our local playground.
The place was packed as every other mom also wanted to take advantage of this gorgeous and brief warm winter day and get the kids out of the house.
The kids didn't seem to mind the busy space and they went off in their own directions. Attempting not to helicopter (as I usually do--I am working on it!!), I watched Gracie proudly climb something while shouting "mommy look at me!" While my back is turned my son is off memorizing the ladies.
I turn back to find Thomas in the plastic car, in the drivers seat, surrounded by little girls.
I know my jaw dropped and it took several seconds, maybe a minute, for the image to "load" in my brain. I thought to myself, wait until Garren sees this, and I snapped his picture. He sure was proud of himself.
I have decided he was having fun, and he had no idea the gender of the FIVE children who surrounded him on the hood, trunk and passenger seat of that car. I have to decide that, otherwise I won't make it until age 13.
As you can imagine...he father is beyond proud.
