Tuesday I went to preschool with Tanner. I hadn't been all year, and it was so fun to see his reaction to bringing me to school with him. He was so excited and chatty and going around the whole room to show me what everything was. Then every once in a while he would get done explaining something to me and he would hug me and say, "I love you mom." OK, I would be lying if I said I wasn't tearing up on the inside. Days get so crazy sometimes and hectic and the kids are both begging for attention and it's so nice to get one on one time with both of them each day and for Tanner, do things with him like this so that he sees that I am so interested in what he is doing at school and excited to be there. He was attached to my hip the whole time, and wanted me to sit with him on the floor for story time and snack time and play with me outside. When we were doing art he said, "When I am big I'm going to marry you. Becuase I love you. We can get married right mom?" Well, I'm not about to break his heart right now so of course I said "Yes." He also wants to marry Samantha on most days too. So, as these last few months of preschool wind down, I'm anxiously awaiting Tanner to start Kindergarten. Of course it's amazing to watch the kids grow up and develop their personalities and watch who they are becoming but it's way too fast. I just try to relish in every little precious moment like this that I can.
