A Day in the Life of...

Cooper.

Well, I thought I would let you know how Cooper's day went yesterday. He is definitely my "never a dull moment" boy.


He started off the the day with a toaster pastry - so you know it had to be a good day ahead...
off to school (which always seems really long to him) and then home to be a helper!


Here he is helping Dad fix the piano bench


Jason and I got involved in a conversation and then a few minutes later, Cooper in a very excited voice said, "LOOK!".  I looked over to see this




This is our kitchen... below the chalkboard - an area I painted again not too long ago.  Cooper found a bicycle hook we had bought for the garage and decided this would be a great place to hang his coat and back pack up after school. Apparently he didn't think too much of the one I have for him already - in a very nonvisible spot.  I think the cat felt the same way I did about it...




Note to self - spackle and paint... again...


I do like the way his little creative mind works - always trying to come up with a solution to a problem.

I've been trying to talk him into a haircut for a couple of weeks now.  As I was giving Peanut her second bath of the night (it really smelled like she found quite the pile outside and rolled out in "it" quite thoroughly), 



he showed up to show me what he had been doing upstairs...



Remember how he looked earlier?



He was really excited - A REAL "ninja" haircut he called it.

 

 

So, I got to give him the haircut I had been wanting to for quite awhile now... although it is a bit shorter than I had planned on...



After family prayer I guess he was feeling pretty good, so he decided to show us his "stash".




This is a bed riser that was sitting on the floor in our bedroom.




He lifted it up, very pleased with himself. "Ta Da!"

Oh boy, what a day!

Okay, I am just laughing and laughing! Sorry! But I am! What a great kid! He is totally Jason's! I can't believe the cat's expression with the hook! So funny! Like, what the heck? Or, can you believe he did that? AND the hair cut AND the stash! HAHAHA!

And it all started with a toaster pastry. If this isn't stuff commercials are made of, I don't know what is. Eat our toaster pastry and you can ...
