Another Milestone Met: He’s Helping Mow The Lawn
I don't even know how it's possible, but my kiddo is 8 year-old, and he just seems to keep growing up so fast. Every week there's a new achievement. This weekend, we mowed.
Yep. WE mowed.
He had very little interest in being a part of the mowing even a few months ago, but has shown more curiosity the last few times. This time, I said, "why don't you help me out and do part of it?" He said, "ok, but I want to do it all by myself."
That proved to be just a little more difficult than he anticipated, so together, we did the first few passes, and then, I stepped away. He looked quickly back, and then seemed to be determined to make it work on his own. He made it work. He did his passes.
I was simultaneously proud and a little sad. How does it go so fast? I love seeing him grow, achieve, and experience new things. I just can't believe he mowed the lawn this weekend.
We took advantage of the amazing weather and freshly mowed lawn afterward too.
