Mom, I can do it all by myself!

Time really flies. 
A few weeks ago, Joey and I were at the Kids’ section of Fully Booked. Before, he would ask for my help when he wants to look at some books.  As I was watching from behind a shelf, I saw him try to reach a book the the topmost ledge, realize that he couldn’t reach it, and proceed to get a little chair:
And often, when I try to help him, he tells me: Mom, I can do it all by myself!

I was happy and sad at the same time. Happy, that he is growing up to be a resourceful little boy and sad because soon, he will outgrow my hugs and kisses.
