The End of K-4

Back in August I shared Super Z's First Day of K-4 with you. I remember feeling like the years had somehow slipped between my fingers. I am beginning to think that they are going to slip by faster and faster going forward. I am just floored at the very idea that my baby will be going to REAL school next year...but lets not put the cart in front of the horse.
This was what my baby looked like on the first day of school 2007. So cute, a little nervous.

Flash forward 9 months..I give you Super Z on the last day of K-4. (I swear to you, I couldn't get him to pose like this if I tried. This is all Z.)
I will say it again, (and will probably say it a million more times in the years to come) I just can't believe how big my baby is getting. Wow.
Super Z actually missed the last two days of class because of his severe poison ivy. He sat naked in front of a fan while his classmates made their last construction paper masterpieces. He didn't complain too much, but he INSISTED on attending the end of the year program and the last day PARTY.
We lathered him up generously with Boudreaux's Butt Paste ( a miracle cream if there ever was one) and muscled through. Sure he acted like a crackhead because of the steroids, but who cares? He was there. ( That is a story...or two...for another day.)
He seems to be feeling a good bit better today, no screaming or crying. We are opting out of tee ball anyway though. I don't figure that black ball pants and the hot sun would help our cause. We will resume ball when we can go without creaming up his private area..or his bird as he has began to call it... What the crap?

Your blog makes great reading and so good to hear you mention Boudreaux's Butt Paste, we loved it so much that we're bringing it to the UK, shortly, we hope..

WOW! Your baby HAS grown up a lot in the past 9 months. And, I've enjoyed all your accounts of both his and your daughters growth.

Happy Mother's Day!

He sure has grown up! Don't you wish you could just make it stop? Even my Punkin says he wants to stay little, and I couldn't agree with him more!

I'm glad to see you around a bit more. Hopefully yall are getting settled into the new routine without too much problem....

I love Butt Paste! I didn't know it was good for poison ivy tho...never heard of anything other than caladryl?

He looks TOTALLY different, S. Huge difference. He is growing up. Make them all stop!

Super Z's pose in the second picture clearly marks him out as a superhero in later life!

Kids are great aren't they? :)
