He was so excited while he packed for his big night.
He took all the essentials for a 7 year old boy...
his leopard "Blaze",
the latest book he's reading,
a book light for late night reading
(in case he woke up scared),
tooth brush and toothpaste,
and his cool Angry Birds jammies.
to watch him walk
into his best friend's house
to spend the night.
He didn't even look back as he stepped inside.
I choked up a little bit,
he's getting so big and independent.
It felt like a milestone.
and my parents offered
to take Koen for the night too.
he had to pack an overnight bag as well,
just like his big brother.
He scampered around the house,
collecting this and that.
Contents included but were not limited to
and a pretend pocket knife.
The house was quiet as we
snuggled up on our couch to watch Avatar.
We kept the phone close by
just in case Griffin got homesick
and called for us to come pick him up.
The phone never rang.
He stayed the whole night.
It was a big deal, for sure.
