Proud Mommy moment

Today I had a super proud mommy moment!! Samantha cut her hair so that she can donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths!! This particular organization will take hair at a minimum of 8 inches and Samantha had 9. They are in partnership with the American Cancer Society and they give their wigs for FREE!! Admittedly she was a little nervous in the beginning but overall she was so excited and cant wait to mail her hair off for a good cause. She has taken to her new short hair and even exclaimed on the way home "Mommy, I look beautiful with short hair!" Yes baby girl you certainly do!!!  So proud of my brave, kind hearted, loving girl!!!

My Sweet Angel

Last week Samantha's school had their Christmas program and all the Pre-K 4 kids had to dress in all white to be angels. As expected Samantha sang her little heart out and looked adorable doing it!! I cant believe that my baby girl will be in kindergarten next year! We are going to miss the sweet faces of all her friends when they all go to different schools next year. Time sure has flown by!!

The first "girlfriend"

Well I knew it would happen eventually and it did come sooner then I thought it would BUT my son has his first "girlfriend". This came about a couple of weeks ago and I am just now remembering that this important milestone in his life NEEDS to be documented. Let's start from the beginning shall we:

Back in late September I witnessed him teasing a little girl that walks home with him. UNACCEPTABLE!! So I explained to him that we dont treat little girls that way and that he needs to be respectful to them etc...etc...  Well after that talk he changed his tune and I started seeing him be sweet and saying bye to her etc... (this little girl is not the girlfriend by the way)

Then a few weeks pass and he gets in the car one October day and says "Mom, I have a girlfriend!" WHAT??!?!?!?!  I was so not ready for that.

So I asked him " A girlfriend huh? Well why do you think she is your girlfriend"
His response " Well, she likes to follow me around and she copies me and she likes to give me hugs. She is also a girl and my friend."

Well that about summed it up! A little girl who is following him and copying him, YEP she definitely likes him!!  LOL!!

So we go about our business and about a week or so later a picture comes home with him!! Thats right, this bold little cutie gave my son a picture of herself. It was by far the cutest thing EVER!!! So how did we respond? Well we sent her a picture right back!!  LOL! Did I mention that it was THE CUTEST THING EVER!!! Did I mention that she is a cutie patootie as well?

So this moves us into November and as you might have seen in my last post Mason had a 2nd grade show where he played a t-bird. This was the moment that I knew I would get to meet the girl and her mother!! Sure enough I did get to meet both and they are very very sweet people! The mom and I laughed about our "relationship" and she was very glad to get to meet Mason.

I have already posted a picture of the kids together once so I wont do it again b/c I dont feel its my place but if you want to get a glance, you can refer back to my last post about his t-bird performance and scroll down to the bottom. Mason is pictured with a set of twins (yes she is a twin) and she is the cutie in the winter white coat!!

Ah young love!! ;)

Grease is the word...

Mason had his 2nd grade program last night and the theme was Broadway! He was chosen to be one of 4 t-birds from the movie Grease!! OMG he was AWESOME!! I have never seen my child move the way he did. Shaking his little hips and taping his foot, he seriously got into it and I loved watching every minute of it!! I was hoping to get to post some video of him but alas I have had no luck in my attempt :(  But here are some pics of my cool dude in his dancing debut!
