I know Elijah is ready for this new adventure. I can tell by the little things like:
- Now, when he hears himself say "lasterday" or "lellow" he corrects himself to correctly say yesterday and yellow.
- He offers to share. (pick your mouth up off the floor- it's true)
- He delights in getting up and dressing himself, and unlike his little brother he wants his clothes to match.
- He has figured out that things require money and now asks me for it when he goes on his field trips. If I tell him no, he reminds me he has his own "potty" money- he'll be happy to use that. (Potty $ = a dime earned for each day at daycare with no potty accidents, going 'poopy' earned him a quarter. He occassionaly still asks me for quarters, and if he remembers to ask, I still pay up)
I guess I need to snap out of this semi-denial and get shopping. My funny, smart and dramatic dude is going to need those million dollar school supplies. Hey, maybe I can talk him into using his own money.
