Throwback Thursday - Three Years Ago...

Thursday, August 21, 2014


Three years ago, my son was merely three years old. He was still just a baby in my eyes, talking in his baby voice and smiling his baby-licious smile. It was three years ago that we first took his new Harley Davidson three-wheeler for a ride to the park on a bright, sunshiney day. When we arrived at home, my son turned on the TV and snuggled into our new bean bag chair while watching Dora the Explorer.


Once the show was over, that's when the trouble started.


You see that irresistible smile? Yes, it actually spelled trouble. I tried my best to win but clearly his cuteness defeated my competitive urge. As the winner, he celebrated with a chocolatey treat. And of course, I had to join in. It was all part and parcel with celebrating the re-launch of Kinder Surprise as well. Mmm, chocolate!


It was still a week away from our planned trip to Fan Expo and my son was still too young to help me build a KRE-O Sentinel Prime Transformer. So he chose to perform an operation instead...


You'd think he'd want to be a doctor when he grows up, perhaps. Nope. During his kindergarten graduation last June, he stood up on stage, approached the microphone and announced to all:

"Hi! I'm Paolo. In kindergarten, I learned about patterns. When I grow up, I want to be a race car driver."

  4. He is adorable. Time goes by so quickly when you have kids. I don't think the reality has hit me yet, that my "baby" is having a baby.

  11. A week of reflection - son entered Grade 6 on Tuesday. Wednesday I flipped through photographs of Evan and his friends and amazed at speed of transformation. Must say for the first time I started feeling old - but have to keep up so to the treadmill I go. lol.

  14. Haha I love hearing what kids want to be when they grow up. Has it changed? My yearbooks indicate that in SK, I wanted to be "a mom," and in grade 1, I wanted to be a lawyer.

  18. I think I am one of the few that stuck to my goals. I wanted to be a nurse my entire life and that is my career. Now mom wanted me to marry a doctor, but that didn't happen...lol

    I remember getting down on my knee to get my hugs, now I have to look up at him and say "Hey! Where's my hug???"
