In front of his classroomIn front of his cubbyMama & Jaxon's first dayHe had an absolute blast! He was so flippin' happy when I picked him up at 11:30. The teachers were so sweet, telling me what a helpful, friendly, polite, sweet kid he is. It made my heart burst with pride. He helped clean up the toys after recess, he said "please" and "thank you", he even shared! I think he was craving some stimulation and kid-time.
For the rest of the day he wouldn't stop talking about school. His teachers, Ms. Karma & Ms. Courtney. The school pet, Jasper, a guinea pig who likes to eat grapes. The hermit crab, who is nice and doesn't pinch. The magic box... it had hats in it and Jaxon chose the conductor hat!, The book Ms. Karma read. The kid who screamed really loud and he told to "shush" because screaming was not nice at school. We heard it all.
The best part about his school is that the teachers send you pictures at the end of each day! How amazing is that? For some reason, whenever I upload pictures that weren't taken from my camera they turn out small. Who knows.
Making new friends at the "cafe" Building at the construction center.
Jaxon's favorite part... Jasper the Guinea Pig
Building a puzzle with new friends
Music & Movement time
Here's a Jaxon telling Brian about his first day
Now, the second day did not go as smoothly. Frankly he did not want to go to "school again." And he made it known. The only way I got him to go out the door happily was to tell him he could watch TV in my classroom for a little bit before going to HIS classroom. Oh, then there was the walk to his classroom from mine. Tears, tears, tears. He didn't even want to walk into the room. Thank goodness for Ms. Courtney! She asked Jaxon to help her feed Jasper breakfast. That's it. That's all it took. He turned to me and said, "Bye Mom! I'm going to feed Jasper." As if he had not just been crying 2 seconds ago!
Now remember how I said earlier that it was nice being at the same school? Yeah, well not at recess time. He spied me this morning and started BAWLING! Poor thing. I went to talk to him and he grabbed my hand and said, "Pleeeeeease don't LEAVE ME!" Talk about ripping my heart out. So what's a good mom to do? I left him. Yup, screaming and crying. But again, thank goodness for Ms. Karma this time. She came to my room not 5 minutes later to show me pictures of Jaxon playing happily with another little boy. He's all about putting on a show for mom and making her feel guilty.
I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for him. He is going to bloom in preschool!

Like every other good Grandmother, my mom had to buy Jaxon a souvenir. Guess what he chose? A sword. If you look closely, he is giving his best intimidating look. Not prompted by anyone. Such a boy.
Now onto the 4th. We had a nice quiet day that began with a little visitor in our yard.Mondays is "belly picture" day. Today, I had a companion. I wonder if in the months to come by belly will reach as far as his head? Once I had my picture taken, he says, "Now you take pictures of me by myself. Spinning." Sheesh!So glad I obeyed, because this is my favorite picture in a long time. How sweet is that smile? And those big brown eyes will just melt your heart (or break it... watch out girls!)And what's The 4th of July in the Pearson house without some fireworks. Since they are illegal in Arizona, unlike in New Mexico, we did not go all out like in the last 2 years. My pryo husband was disappointed.Mike & LoganSkylar

Fast forward 3 years and NKOTB is back at it! Oh, that 12-year-old girl is giddy! For some reason, I wasn't on my game and didn't get tickets for us. Thank goodness for Nicole though, because 3 days before the concert she scored tickets via Groupon! Sarah, Nicole & I were off to Phoenix once again (Mary & Ami were in San Diego) .
We first stopped at TGI Fridays for a quick dinner. That's Chase field behind us.
Please remember I am growing a person inside of me... hence the big belly :)
Oh yeah. The Backstreet Boys were with them. The ultimate boy band, NKTOBSB. I was more of an 'N Sync girl myself.
We rocked it baby! We had a blast.BSB brought up girls from the audience and Brian (?) chose this little girl. Nicole & I cried. Yeah, we're cool like that. I'd like to blame the hormones, not sure what Nicole's excuse is.
My favorite part? Hands down was the dude the was ROCKIN' it. Check out the guy in the white hat. He loved himself some BSB. He knew ALL of the words. Hilarious. I also think he taped the entire show. I'm sure he's watched it several hundred times by now.
We had a blast. So flippin' fun to leave the kids & husbands at home and act like teenage girls again.
We even got lost coming out of the arena (but saw the tour buses) and lost our car in the parking garage. Oh well. Good times were had. I'll do it again anytime!
I'll leave you with this little golden nugget... Donnie Wahlberg's abs. Oh yeah! Just ask Nicole how hot he was.
