Daddy's Boy and Meals

It's starting to happen.

For years, R has been a big daddy's boy, which is a-ok by me, since well, he's 7 1/2 and should be starting to relate better to his dad than his mom. Don't get me wrong, I feel wholly loved by both my boys and their tender hearts. But a big reason for me being okay with R's leaning has been that G, my 4 year old, is my big mama's boy.

I've always told SPH, when G was asking for me for the zillionth time, that "he'll start to be a daddy's boy here soon." It started happening this weekend...G fell down while playing soccer, and instead of running to me for comfort, he made a b-line to dad. G wanted dad to read his bedtime story and sit next to him at dinner too.

This is the way it is supposed to be, I assume, but it is still another sign that G is growing up...way too fast for his mama's liking. Another sign?

G "signing in" for his first day of his last year of preschool. He's gone from his preschool's toddler room to pre-K in no time flat. They grow up fast, these little ones...

Now for our menu plan for the week:

Mom's Tilapia
, Summer Italian Vegetables, Tomato/Basil Salad and Peas
New Red Beans and Rice Recipe (recipe testing)
Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
Tofu and Japanese Eggplant Stir-fry (recipe testing)
Chicken(less) Pot Pies (recipe testing)

I'm trying out some new recipes this week, will share if they pass muster!

Have a sweet week, y'all,

Hadden's a Momma's boy too (and I kinda love it). And Haven loves a good pot pie. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
