It’s October and it’s still blazing hot outside. It would have been perfect if we had some fall weather during Liam’s first preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch. I think we all left with sun tans. Nonetheless, Liam had a blast. He played on tricycles, ran on planks, and jumped up and down on hay stacks. We even went on a hayride across the street. It’s a new addition to the patch. During the ride you try and spot the scarecrow, spiderman hanging from a tree, and other cool things along the way. Kids loved it and they all went back to school with a mini pumpkin to keep!
Liam’s birthday celebration at school comes with a crown and a cupcake. Lucky for us, we got to see him blow out his candle. “Don’t touch the flame Liam!”

The day has finally come! My 1st born is growing up right before my eyes. Like everyone says, “Enjoy these moments because they go by too fast.” See that’s the problem, it goes by so fast, I find it difficult to step back and enjoy it. Sometimes I have to remind myself not to go 100mph through life. So just like that, the morning rush of getting Liam ready for his big day arrived; pack lunch, make breakfast, brush hair, brush teeth, change clothes, pack backpack, and repeat over and over, “Are you excited, Liam?!” After all this, I thought, I’m definitely going to cry when I leave him at school.
On our drive there, I kept thinking to myself, how the hell am I going to get his first day of preschool photo? Liam is one of those. Yes, one of those toddlers that likes to say NO to a lot of things we say. Especially when we want to take a picture of him. What is it with this word? Seriously! Drives me nuts. We finally arrived and thankfully Liam was in a great mood. So I asked nicely, “Can I take a picture of you?” And guess what this little dude said, “Ok!” I was ecstatic! Hence, the 50 photos taken of him in the same spot. There were so many good takes, it was really hard to share only one. Or maybe I’m just really proud of my little boy. As I left his classroom, no tears. Just a big smile…
