tonight was one of those nights where everyone fell asleep EVENTUALLY, no one started off in THEIR own bed and i had to move a few stragglers in order to find my own pillow.
because we have tomorrow off from school we watched a movie and then tried to get everyone to sleep. well, truthfully, i tried to put ben to sleep before the movie, but failed miserably. all that to say when bed time rolled around (later than usual) everyone was too tired to really put up a fight - talking about me and rob. the kids all picked a bed and finally passed out.
i didn't have a problem until just now. i tried to move caleb out of our bed. tonight i realized he's no longer my little boy - and that's an understatement. i got to really laughing as i "wrestled" him in the right direction and tried to "pick" him up once he landed diagonally across his bed.
i know he's getting older, growing taller and all that...but tonight was it, he crossed the line.
and then i realized...i can wear his old t-shirts, his old shoes - well, if i wanted to, and remember the days when you would let your kid win at basketball? gone. i can no longer carry him to bed and he is easily tall enough to ride in the front seat of the car. he was watching the ncaa tournament and not disney channel last weekend.
this is a clip of him at batting practice last week...i thought "he looks so cute playing ball - i'll grab my camera"...and now i realize as i watch it again...wow, he's not so little anymore...
