I just want to remember these things.

Carter was the Star Student a few weeks back for his school.  We are quite proud of him over here.  He had to be recommended by his teacher, and then approved by the principle.  The certificate has been on display at the school and then most lately it has hung very proudly on our fridge.  Way to go Carter!!! 

Carter came home from school yesterday telling me that the bus driver gave out new seating assignments on the bus that day.  Now, instead of sitting by his friend Kevin, he sits by a girl.  I asked him if this was okay, and he said, "Yeah, but don't ask me what she smells like."  Me, puzzled and then thinking maybe she smelled bad, asked "Why?  What does she smell like?"  His response, in an undertone, "Good," then louder, "But I'M not going to tell her that!!"  I got a good laugh out of that.  I then asked him how old she was.  He said she was in third grade ( Carter is in first).  PHEW.  :)

Tonight the kids were playing in the bathtub.  Bo was sitting in chair watching them and playing on his ipad.  I was lying on the bed listening to them and reading a book.  Eventually Carter got out and dried himself off and got dressed.  Megan followed soon after.  I asked if Derrick was still in the bath, and Bo responded yes, so I went about reading, assuming Bo would get Derrick out.  A few minutes later Bo brought my attention to the floor, where Carter was drying Derrick off with a towel and dressing Derrick.  It took a few minutes of shock and questions to realize that CARTER had gotten Derrick out of the bath.  Not only that but Carter also put a diaper on Derrick!!!  Sure the diaper was on backwards, but still!!  This was definitely a first around here.  I then watched in stunned silence as Carter put footy pajamas on Derrick, stood him up to get his arms in, and heard him say, "Derrick, where'd your hand go??  There it is!" Just like I say when I put their pajamas on and play peek a boo with their hands.  I'm one proud Mama.  What an awesome kid!  ps...Bo took the diaper off before Derrick was fully dressed and showed Carter the correct way to put it on, so no, Derrick still doesn't have his diaper on backwards.
