Jude began 1st grade.
So natural. So ready.
I already adore his teacher who is reminding me of Laura Ingalls Wilder a bit....so kind & soft in her tone yet really high-energy.
I'm trying to get used to the early wake ups & eating breakfast WAY earlier than we normally do. This little convo took place over a bowl of oatmeal flakes....it just makes me smile.
Jude: Mommy, what are you doing?
Me: Trying on these pants to see if they fit. I'm trying to lose the last few pounds of baby weight.
Me: Because it doesn't look good on me. It looks better on babies.
Jude: Mommy, you know what we need around here?
Jude: Another baby....you need to give us one more.
Me: Really? Why do you say that?
Jude: I just want a different kind this time. A more different one than Leland.
Me: What kind do you want???
Jude: A sister....and lets call her "Ashla"
