Weekend 10.19.14 (part 2)
As of 6:11am this morning, Beau Danger is a 4-year-old.
Three was a really challenging age for us as a family. He pushed and overreacted and generally exhausted us with his curiosity and emotions, but then on Tuesday, he peeled the hurt off of Maverick.
In the Blanton Household, Southey began to deal with falls and boo-boos by asking the Beau or Mav where they were hurt, then dramatically peeling the hurt off like a band-aid. After the hurt is peeled off it is disposed of however the kid decides - lots of stomping on hurt, throwing hurt in the potty, tossing it outside or Southey eating it. It is genius, and it works every time.
On Tuesday night, Beau and Maverick were jumping on Mav’s bed while Southey and I were watching on the video monitor. Maverick took a tumble and bonked his cheek on the wall. As Southey and I held our breath, waiting to decide if we needed to go in and check on him, Beau turned to his little brother and asked, “Where’s the hurt, Mav?” He then proceeded to peel it off Maverick’s cheek, throw it on the floor and stomp on it.
"There you go, Mav. I stomped the hurt," Beau said.
(at which point Southey and I both dropped the mic and walked off the parenting stage)
In all seriousness, it was single-handedly one of the top five parenting moments I have experienced to date. Beau is turning into this awesomely, great kid and I could not be more proud to be his mom.
There was a party going on back there, but this guy was more interested in hanging out and throwing acorns in the pond. At first I was frustrated, but then I noticed how old he looked in this pic and I got over it.
Say hello to my new favorite koozie! Each one had the bridesmaids correct hair color, dress color and monogram. @sayecheese you are fabulous!
Not sure how I feel about the haircut I got at lunch, I get crazy when my hair gets long, so I told them to take it all off the sides and back, I usually feel better after the first shower and I see what it does, although I do feel about 10 pounds lighter. Also, SO MANY GRAY HAIRS.
Hot husband is hot.
