Rocket Man!

Do you see this?

That is one happy kiddo!!!

All that I've been hearing about lately are Disney movies, trains, and rockets. If you take a look at the "Jan Plan", this week the theme was "Rockets". My son has been the "Rocket Man" all week! We've read about "Rockets" and I've spent some time pointing out astronauts, planets, and stars in the books that we've been reading.

I did not get around to making a rocket with Matthew on Monday. We did some other things and that just got moved back. On Tuesday, I had to work, but now my husband has off. I know that my husband enjoys doing artsy stuff and so I took a chance that he and Matthew might enjoy making a rocket together.

I left a bunch of stuff on the table and told my husband to just be creative! I asked him to let Matthew color a little bit on the rocket, but aside from that, anything goes! I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised!

That night, around 6:30, I received a text video on my phone from my husband. He was taping Matthew with his rocket. I started to cry! I have sent a lot of videos to my husband at work of Matthew and I doing fun stuff, but I do not often receive them....nor do I ever have to miss out on an activity that my son is doing.

Scott told me that he's really looking forward to Tuesday night "Matthew and Daddy Time". I am too....even through the tears.
