First Day of Second Grade

Woah! How did that happen? Summer is OVER! Well, at least for us because today was the first day of school. My baby is in second grade! As I took pictures this morning and then was reviewing them to put on Facebook it struck me how my boy has changed so much from the 1st day of first grade. He got a short haircut this weekend so that makes a big difference, but he is much much taller and those baby teeth are now gone as his adult teeth are starting to make their appearance. He is now "OVER" t.v. shows like Doc McStuffins and now prefers to watch the Cartoon Network, which in my opinion is a nightmare. Some of the cartoons these days are horrendous! Gone are the good ole' shenanigans of Scooby Doo ( which still airs on CN). The cartoons are dark and filled with sarcasm and mistreatment of others. After noticing a change in Aidan- with his attitude and how disrespectful he was becoming, we had to say NO to Cartoon Network unless the show was approved by us first.

I want to use this blog to remember Aidan's childhood, so here are some things about him as he goes into 2nd grade....

-He loves playing on his WiiU- Disney Infinity and MarioKart 8 are his favorites!
-He also loves minecraft but I think he enjoys watching Youtube videos of people playing better than actually playing.
-He is currently going through a "No eating phase" and food is just not appealing to him. I give him a Pediasure every night before bed just to get calories into him. His favorite foods are Filet Mignon and Chick Fil A nuggets which I can usually always get him to eat.
-When I asked him this morning what he wanted to be when he grew up he said " A scientist who does Chemistry"
-His favorite subjects are math and science
-He loves going to the pool and really loves water slides.
-He is still as sweet and loving as always. He tells me about 20 times a day that he loves me. He often comes to me for hugs. :)
-He is a sensitive boy and gets his feeling hurt easily
-He is really awesome about thinking of others.
-He is still the sunshine in my life!
 I want to be a Chemist when I grow up.
