Life with a 4 year old

(Otherwise known as, didn't get a post up at his birthday, otherwise known as mom guilt at its finest!)

When you have a 4 year old, you learn...  well, a lot of things you never thought you needed to know.
For instance, leaving a roll of TP on the back of the toilet... not the best idea. 

I think if you had to sum him up in one description... the kid never. stops. moving.

 He's remained his quirky little self... His top 5 favorite things, in no particular order, as of this very day... His Snoopy "You can be anything" book, the movie "Cars" (which I so sincerely wanted him to like... what was I thinking?!)  His tag reader, specifically the Cars book and Finding Nemo.  Pushing his sister down is up there on the list too.  Not a malicious push, really, just a pull over/you're not doing what I want you to do... helpful guidance, he'd probably call it.  Lastly, his Thomas the Train set.  Oh, and how could I forget football.  There will be weeping when football is over.  Seriously, weeping.  Here's the closest he's ever going to get as a football player if mom has anything to say about it.  He's so cute.  For quite some time, his football pose had to have crossed feet.... I have no idea why, but it makes me laugh, every time. 
He's also a big fan of being on stage, which is all well and good, until he needs to get off the stage. Oh, man.  He only threw a minor fit at his preschool fall parade. 

Preschool this year has gone better than last year.  I think he just would rather be doing other things sometimes.  He's rather opinionated, really.  He's transitioned really well with the move, and he certainly enjoys the hundred acre woods out his back door.  Can't complain about that. :)
