My Best Buddy

I went and registered Aden for Kindergarten today, and I have to admit I am having a bit of a hard time with it! I just don't want him to be old enough to go to school! I want him to stay 4 forever. This is the best age--He is old enough to be pretty self sufficient, but he is still young enough that he is still my baby, and he still needs me. I love it!
So, this morning I woke him up and told him we were going to go sign him up for school, and he said, "Am I five already?" He has been looking forward to being 5 for a long time, and he can't wait to go to school with Jared.
After we left the "big kid" school I said, "Aden, I can't believe you are going to be in Kindergarten! It makes me a little bit sad because that means you are getting too big." He replied with, "Oh Mama, it's okay. I am still gonna be your best friend. Actually, I am gonna be your best friend until I am 100!" Oh, how I wish that were true! I just love my little guy!
