How long can he stay sweet?

Joshua made something for me at Primary yesterday. He hid it in his coat and all I saw was a flash of red. I saw it and asked him to take it out so he could buckle himself in the car properly. "no! it's for you for valentine's day and it's a surprise so you can't see it." well that I can understand.

at nap time he got out of bed because he said he lost a piece of my present and he needed to look for it. he was all worried that I would find it and it would spoil the surprise. I promised not to look. Luckily he found the missing piece in the car on the way to grandma's so all was right with the world. He gluesticked it on when we got home.

I'm looking forward to my surprise on Tuesday. I don't think my guy is going to be this sweet for much longer. The pre-teen and teen years are looming over him and I know there will come a point where he won't want me to kiss him goodnight anymore. I won't get surprise valentines from my boy. I don't keep all of their presents and hand made cards. I don't have space for it. This one I will keep. I think it might be the last valentine from Joshua. The last one is more precious than the first one.

Isnt THAT the truth!? They grow up so fast and one day you just turn around and they no longer need bedtime kisses. Time flies...

He is too cute. Give him an extra hug today from his Aunt Cathy. Well give all those adorable kids hugs. What a special story. I think he will still remember his mom because he has a good role model in his dad.
