My little Montessori Man

Mr Man is exploding with knowledge at this Montessori, I am just so proud of him!

Last night after dinner, he turned to me and said, "ok mom... bath?"

I think I sat there a little stunned before I said yes. He is growing up right before my eyes *weep*

Then this morning, while watching Imagination Movers, we were about to have to go and I said, ok bud, lets get your shoes and socks. And he walks in his room, grabs some socks, and brings them to me and says "socks!" He is such a doll.

I knew when we started sending him to the school he would get smarter, but this quickly, and this many words, is just unbelievable.

Not to mention Mr Man has started singing. As you all know, I sang to him as a baby, and have continued that in all of his 17 months... but when he started singing back to me, I couldn't help but cry.

Both the ex and I are singers, so I guess he just hears us all the time, and he gets to sing at his school. It is just so incredible to have these walking, talking, little people staring at you and singing to you.

Even after 17 months I am utterly shocked at how much the little guy teaches me!

A ReCap

I am officially the worst blogger ever. Raising Mr Man and working full time, has taken its toll on my schedule, which of course cuts into my blogging life ;-)

However, I thought I would catch you up on what has happened, since the last post.

First of all Mr Man has started Montessori school. He is doing very well, although he has only been in it a week. He seems to be speaking a lot more, and he is loving the kiddo's and new toys.

This weekend was an absolute blast with the little guy!

Saturday we spent time with 2 pretty ladies, Miss Priss and Lindsay. We went to the rainforest cafe and surprisngly the loud noises and large (fake) animals didn't scare the two, but kept them utterly entertained, so Lindsay and I actually had a conversation ;-) I would recommend it to anyone! Then, in the afternoon, I took the munchkin to the blues festival. OMG that was fun, but it was HOT! Mr Man was entertaining all the people on the lawn with his awesome moves and we even got video'd by ABC news. Woot!!!

Sunday I took Mr Man to the zoo and holy schmole. What an amazing experience. First off, that place is enormous!! And Mr Man was so excited to walk around and check everything out. We had a blast. He even had some sherbert! At around 2pm, though, he was absolutely wooped, and so was I, so it was nap time for both of us.

Overall, this has been a busy month. Mr Man is a whopping 16 months (soon to be 17 months - where the heck has time gone???). October is right around the corner, and pumpkin patches and Halloween costumes will soon come out, for all to see.
