All those sleepless nights when Spencer was a newborn, how I longed for the time when I could get a little "break" from being an over-time mom. Now my first "break" has come, with Spencer starting Kindergarten, and I've missed him like crazy (Note picture to left).

Mikey's birthday was August 16th, but we celebrated it a couple days early so Jaron would be home with us (he was on call on the 16th). We had just gotten back from our trip to Texas (which was a blast and wonderful to be with Jaron's sister Jenna at her reception!), so we hadn't had much time to shop. First thing in the morning we headed out to Wal-Mart, I did some grocery shopping while Jaron took the boys to check out the "big-boy bikes". I hadn't finished my produce shopping when I hear, "Beep! Beep! Wook (look) OUT!!" and "Varooooom! I go so fast daddy!!" Here comes Mikey, tearing through the apple and orange stands on the smallest "big-boy bike" they make. Mikey beamed ear-to-ear as he pumped his little legs harder and harder on the pedals. The customers beamed (and chuckled and pointed) as they saw this little speed-racer on his new big-boy bike. As soon as Mikey saw me he exclaimed, "Wook Mommy! I got a new big-boy bike!!" He was so proud, and I felt one of the many joys of parenthood: arguably having more fun watching my child enjoy his present than he was actually experiencing himself.
