One really cool thing about school is Kaleb is learning the Pledge of Allegiance. He is so proud of the America Flag(as he calls it) and every time he sees one, he tells me and daddy to place our hand on our heart and say the Pledge of Allegiance. He does not have it all down yet, but it is so good to hear his little voice trying to get it right, along with how proud he is to see the flag.
With Halloween fast approaching, we had made various trips to Target and various Halloween shops looking for an outfit. Everything we saw Kaleb just said "no." A tip from my sister led me to Pottery Barn Kids. With Kaleb sitting besides me, I pulled up the website and in an instant Kaleb saw his costume...Hot Dog. Yes, our son is going to be a weiner with all the trimmings this year. With the help of Uncle David and Aunt Erin, Kaleb now has a Fancy Ketchup Candy Bag. I can't wait for Halloween!!
On another note, earlier this evening the tooth fairy has come for a visit to the Matulich Household! Kaleb lost his first tooth! After the last few weeks of wondering and worrying,as he new tooth has already been coming in and is crooked, (I have been informed that now that it has room to move in, it should start to straighten out), this afternoon at his After School Adventures his tooth finally let go of his gums.
The leader of the group told me Kaleb was getting ready to go down the slide, stopped, turned to another leader, handed him his tooth and simply stated "Hold this." From what they said he was so non-chalant about it, which I am not surprised since he has been telling me for weeks that we don't need to pull at it as "it will fall out automatically."
Kaleb's Birthday has brought him a new Leapster hand held video game from Mommy and Daddy, which Kaleb is LOVING! So far he only has a Wall-E game, and some games that are built into the system, but he loves showing us his games, and playing them with us. He is so eager to understand and catches on so quickly it is amazing to witness.
Until the next post here is Kaleb sitting on the striped pig at the local pumpkin patch.
