5 on Friday

Happy Friday Friends!

This week's 5 is going to be a little different. Last night our first baby graduation for pre-k. I may have cried. Several times. A few times. So.... for today's 5 on Friday I'm going to list my top 5 moments from the last 5 years with our little guy who is not so little anymore (in no particular order).

Ben did AMAZING! He was the perfect child during the entire time-and I don't say often. Hardly ever if we're being honest; he's a boy. He smiled, sang, and received his diploma like a champ. He even let me a take million photos afterwards without whining. I am SO proud of him. And in case you need a cry, listen to Bruno Mars' song, 123, then imagine a bunch of 5 year olds singing it. Especially if you're reading this at work. It's the fastest way to get you labeled as the crazy person in the office.

I remember you being this small, but yet I can't imagine it looking at you now.

First Christmas
You were so excited even though you had no idea what it was all about.

I love watching you become involved with sports and the growth you make with each and every practice and game.

Becoming a brother
There are no words to describe how I felt at this moment except complete and total love.

Congrats on your graduation! Love you big man!

  1. How sweet! I teach preschool, and somehow I ended up crying with most of the parents at graduation. Our little is already 14 months… and I can't even fathom her going to peek one day… but I know it will happen! :)

    1. 14 months is such a fun age! I can't imagine teaching the pre-schoolers and having to go through that every year:) Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. Congrats to Ben on his graduation!! He looks wayyy too cute in that cap and gown!!

    1. Thank you so much! Have a great Monday!

  3. This is so sweet! Oh my word, no wonder you cried several times.

  4. Very sweet post. Graduations are always so special. I still remember my son's pre-k and Kindergarten graduations, every detail. Such wonderful events. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you! I didn't even think about Kindergarten graduation...I better prepare myself now, ha ha:) Hope you had a great weekend!

  5. AWW...what a big boy! Very sweet post. I never knew I could love like I do until I had kids!

    1. Thank you! Some days may seem very long, but the years really do go by so quickly. Hope you had a wonderful weekend:)
