Hello, Monday (Seth edition)

Since returning from Tennessee, we're been struggling a little bit with Seth.  What an outsider might perceive as bratiness or aggressiveness, we were seeing a need for attention and quality one-on-one time.

After a stern (and decidedly deserved) wake up call from Gramma this past weekend, I decided to shift my focus with true intention this week onto Seth.  So, this edition of Hello, Monday (sans pictures, boo!) is all about my baby...

Hello, coarse and brown leg hair.  Where did you come from, and what are you doing on my 4-year-od?

Hello, microwave s'mores.

Hello, hair-pulling rounds of Chutes and Ladders (that game never ends!!!).

Hello, Clorox and paper towels, and a little boy learning to wipe the floor when he can't be bothered to watch where he is aiming you-know-what. ;)

Hello, enlisting little hands to help sort laundry.

Hello, bright eyes lighting up at successfully writing S-E-T-H over and over again.

Hello, gray skies, that have kept us inside with quiet play and sweet moments.

Hello, magical 18-month Carter footie pajamas that still somehow fit a 34-pound four-and-a-half year old.

What are you saying "hello" to today?  Tell us over at Lisa's blog!

I hope he didn't pick up any ill manners from my crazy kiddos!

Too funny! I just got the same lecture from my parents about my 4 year old. It's hard to balance it all.
