Growing Up

Benton is 3 going on 13. Here he is listening to We Sing Bible Songs on his head phones munching on goldfish and doing the motions to Deep and Wide. Soon it will be rap music (or country, if he wants to rebel) and Doritos.

*Why the hideous table cloth?! You might be wondering. Well, first off, it's not hideous in general, it just looks hideous in my living room. The flanel backed vinyl treasure is an investment in my furnature's future. It comes out when we need to play Jenga or use the glue stick. It's ugly, but it keeps my heart palpatations at bay. In the fine tradition of the plastic covering on the couch.*

In my humble opinion, there is absolutely nothing in thisworld cuter than a toddler in overalls. Even if he's sick--again. Though recovered from the ear infection, he woke up snotty this morning. By 2 this afternoon, his entire body was covered in a rash. So off the antibiotics and back to the doctor we go! Meanwhile, isn't he cute when he's sad?!

Oh for the Oshgosh days again! I always dressed my boys in them until they got old enough to have minds of their own. Then, if they didn't like it, you'd better not buy it, because they wouldn't wear it!! But, yes, he is a doll!!

I love the over-alls, but the table cloth... oh, it hurts.

They make table clothes other colors... taupe maybe?
