I'm bigger now.

My 3 year old has developed a new tactic whenever I tell him he's too little to do something (like roam around the neighborhood with the older boys). He finds something to climb up on and tells me he's bigger. The first time he dragged me over to the kitchen counter and politely asked me to pick him up and put him on top. Then he stood up and stretched as high as he could so he could almost touch the ceiling and proudly stated, "See, I'm big now. I can go with them!"

This amazing girl is getting bigger, too, and is off to college next Fall. No countertop needed.
