the call

Today I received a phone call. A very unexpected phone call. It was 2:20 this afternoon. My cell phone rings (we have no land line). This little voice comes over the phone. "Hi Mommy!!". I'm thinking...um....aren't you at preschool? And then, do they know you are using the phone? I hesitantly say, "Hi Sam". Ed looks at me like, "what in the world?". Exactly what I was thinking. The next words out of his little mouth were, "I learned my phone number today!". My heart just stretched. Stretched so much it almost broke. How I love my son. He was so excited. He got to call home because he learned his phone number. How grateful I am that at his school they include the parents in on even little things and let moms and dads experience their child learning. Filled my heart right up.

It was almost snack time, of which he took to school today for his birthday. Chocolate chip muffins. So off he went to proudly pass out his little muffins we made today. Oh my littleSam I Am is growing up. Way to fast.
