As much as I lament my little boy growing up so fast, I have to admit that it keeps getting better the older he gets. The tiny mewing baby may be gone, but in his place is my incredibly delicious and hilarious big boy.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still the Momma and it is not always all fun and games, but we really have a blast together. Yes, the terrible twos exist and sometimes he drives me to the brink of insanity, but truly every day is an adventure and I love seeing the world through his eyes.
The Gymboree event I hosted a few weeks ago was a perfect example of me and my buddy, Brooksie, taking the world by storm. We played, we read, we colored, heck my little guy is even learning the ropes of shopping (a true art form!)
What I really liked about Eric Carle play and sleepwear line for Gymboree was being able to share my love of Eric Carle’s characters even further with Brooks. His favorite shirt right now is the Brown Bear. It is almost as beloved as his blankie.
There are moments when I want to go back in time and magically make Brooks a teeny weenie baby again but those are few and far between compared to my beautiful life moments, going on adventures, and taking the world by storm with my sweetest partner in crime, Brooks!!
