Treasured moments

Every day I drive Caden to school.

Everyday he tells me he is "a big boy" and wants to walk to class by himself.

Usually when we get there, there are other kids from his class arriving.

He will get out of the car and then wait for them so they can all walk together.

Today was no different.

He got out and waited.

The next thing I knew I saw him walking towards the car.

He came to the window.

I rolled it down.
He looked at me and said..."You FORGOT!"

Me: Really, what? (even though I knew what he was going to say)

Caden: My kiss!!!

He then raced around the car and planted one on my lips.

Just as quickly, he was by his friends side walking to class.

I will treasure these moments as much as I can.

Too soon he won't want to 'say goodbye'

The growing up part of parenting just happens too fast.

That is adorable. I love how little boys want to be "big" but at the same time want their mom. I just wish they could stay this way for a while longer before they grow up.

And I have to say I agree...it DOES happen way too fast! That is the sweetest thing ever...you are right, that too soon he will be embarrassed to do that in front of his friends. What a sweet kid... :)
