He Said...

Here is a layout I designed using a page map for the Creative Scrapbooking Divas design team call. I've been wanting to do a layout based around this idea for a while now. First, a little context:

My husband works a lot of nights at the airport (he's an agricultural specialist with Customs & Border Protection) so I do most of the bed times with the kids. Last year in March of 2010, one of Cade's favorite books was called "Mommy's Little Boy" and the idea of course is that no matter how old or how big Cade gets, he will always be my little boy. I started telling him that I wished he would stay little and not grow up and he would always giggle. Then one day from out of the blue, we're driving to preschool and this little voice from the backseat says, "I'm sorry mommy, but I can't stay little. I have to grow up and get big like daddy." Well, you can imagine how this affected me. I got so choked up I didn't know what to say. When I walked him in to his teachers, I cried telling them the story - and they cried too! We're just softies I guess. But that one incident has stuck with me and I will always remember it. Here's what I did with it...
