So Proud

This is a picture of my ever-maturing husband. This morning when Brent got out of bed at 11:30a.m., he completed and mailed his own car registration. I only assisted by reminding him to add an extra stamp to the envelope. It seems like only yesterday he learned how to operate the toaster. Next thing I know, he'll be buying and washing his own clothing. They grow up so fast.


I'm extra proud of myself for resisting my uber-responsible, anxious, controlling urges to complete this task for Brent even though it was due September 30th! It took A LOT of effort.

Brent- your hair is the best - I love it! How do you create that "just got out of bed look?"
Let me guess, just roll out of bed! Hey, and I'm impressed you got the registration completed before the end of the year -- so you wouldn't even have to set it as a New Year's resolution. So what's the big fuss about!

I am so glad to hear I am not the only one who has to bite the tongue every once in a while and wait for the hubby to get with it. LOL Congrats both of you!

You crack me up, Rita. Way to resist stepping in. And Brent is growing up so nicely :-)

I'm still mad at Brent's kindergarten teacher and his mission president for not making him grow up. Thanks for an AWESOME post Rita. Love you both.
