Milestone for Miles

My baby boy, starts his first day of his last year of preschool tomorrow. Two years ago, I checked in to the school he attends now, they have a parents morning out program and I thought his time in class would do some good for his social life and I needed the extra time so I could attend a few classes as I started my journey to nursing school. Tomorrow starts his THIRD year there and we've been so happy. Miles will be in 4 year old preschool this year, which is 3 days a week for 2.5 hours. I have a tradition that I started, I allow each child to choose what they would like for dinner, the night before school starts. Miles wanted pizza. I added a healthy spin to it when I decided to do homemade instead of order out. Miles chose to have carrots on the pizza. I thought to myself  "Different...hmmm...healthy, so hey! We'll try it!" He ended up changing his mind and wanted black olives on it instead. It's his choice, since I asked him what he wanted, so I made it! We had two pizzas, one was half cheese, half black olives. The other was spinach, broccoli and I filled my carrot topping curiosity with that one. It turned out great!

I had to laugh when I was washing spinach and came across this funny little leafy specimen. Not sure what it was, but I chose to think it brought us good luck ;)

So, my baby starts his last year of preschool tomorrow, which means, Kindergarten is around the corner and if I let myself think about it too much, it just might make me tear up! As if that wasn't enough, I have decided to put his stroller up for sale. I am not a saver of things, and I was holding on to his stroller for whatever reason I don't know, to be honest, I think I just have a hard time letting it go because I loved it so much...I still remember the day I found it, it is Mia Moda which was a brand I was not familiar with, but I was thrilled to find something other than Graco! It seemed to have everything I was looking for (adjustable handle, unique looking, fun colors and practical!) I bought the infant seat that went with it and it was what we brought our baby boy home from the hospital in. My heart melts when I have those memories! The realistic side of me couldn't logically think of a reason to allow it to keep taking up space though, so it must go. All good things come to an end, so this is "Good bye" to baby and hello to big kid who is an absolute JOY! (I should note, we haven't used the stroller in about 2 years, so it was just collecting dust and dog hair because Acilia likes to take our dog for rides in it!)
