And he stayed!

It is finally here, the day has finally come...Jack officially stayed in nursery by himself for the last hour of church! Some of you may laugh at me, saying, well our kid stays all two hours and doesn't even cry. Well I have news for you, maybe your next kid won't, and then I just might be the one laughing as you relentlessly try to reassure him/her that you will come back and get them, they will be okay, nursery is "fun."

As we have now been trying to get Jackson to stay by himself in nursery for about 16 months, which would be a lot of Sundays', it is one BIG HUGE breakthrough that he has now finally come to the conclusion that we will indeed come back to get him. I personally believe that it was the giantic bag of gummy bears that has recently swayed him to the side of independence from his parents. Blessed gummy bears! I will forever be in your debt!

So, to anyone out there who is wondering if their child will ever stay anywhere anytime without is a bit of hope. They do get bigger, and they do become somewhat more logical, and they do stay without you (without crying)!

On a side note, Jack is officially potty trained and has taken up becoming a pirate. He literally jumps on the couch and fights captain hook with his pirate sword every day! Silly boy. I wish I could explain the amounts of personality that ooze from him!

Yippee for pottytrained boys. And as for not staying in Nursery...well your kid can't be perfect I guess right. One day you're going to wish he still never wanted to leave your side. Glad to see you are doing well. I'll take your monthly updated over nothing at all. We love you guys.

Hey Jen! So good to see you on here. I have to laugh at this because we went through the same thing with Peyton. She is now staying on her own every week and has been for a few months now! It's great. But now we are starting all over again with Gavin.

I didn't play any outdoor this season, hopefully next season. How about you?
