so Stratton must be going through a maturing stage because he is doing and saying the oddest things. He has been into cleaning, organizing, and just making life more simple. Lately(this week and last) he has been so interested in infomercials, YES thats what I said Infomercials, you know the commercials that have the 5 second blast on how great their products are, or the one's you see late at night that are ridiculously long but yet they still interest you and you wonder could that really work?
So Stratton watches NOggin the show that plays all the kid shows, ALL day Long, and apparently they think that the kids need to get in on the action(or they think parent's are watching). But they have gotten Stratton to become a BELIEVER, they have him bought at 4 yrs old!!! Everyday he comes to me and has a different thing that he has seen that he has to have, and this is no joke, here is his list (for his birthday)if I laugh he gets mad because his is totally serious if you know Stratton he is Serious!!!!

1. Butterfly Habitat( you grow your own butterflies, who would have know)
2. Pixo's ( the one tool that helps them make bead art?)
3.Pancake Puff Maker (apparently they make your pancakes taste much better)
4. Buxton Bag Organizer ( this is for mom cause he says I can never find my phone)
5. Space Bags ( so this one if the funniest, so that I can have fresh clothes as good as new as the day they were put in the bags and Stratton swears by this one!)

Boy have I got a handful with this kid I think that he trying to tell that my house needs organizing (which is doesn't on my defense), he is just a clean freak like his dad, gotta love em' he is the sweetest boy and always has good intentions:)

Clean House

I have to tell this story about Stratton mostly for journaling purposes, and because it was so random! This morning I was sitting on the couch folding clothes while Stratton was sitting watching cartoons, when all of the sudden he gets up and start cleaning! YEs, it is a shock for me because it is always such a headache to get him to clean up his toys. But wait, that is not all..... after cleaning the living room he went straight to his room cleaned it completely bed, toys, and all. Then, he went to the bathroom and picked up his towel off the floor and just went around the whole house cleaning and picking things up. Just when I thought he was done( he had been cleaning for 30 min already) he went straight to MY ROOM turned to me and says " you seriously need to clean your room", I could not stop laughing now tell me how RANDOM is that, and embarassing that your son has to tell his mom to clean her room. ( I promise it's not that bad just clothes everywhere).He love's to try and be the boss to mom or anyone else whenever possible ,gotta I love him for those leadership qualities!

It has alway's been tradition every summer to go over to Granny's and irrigate, and every year since Stratton was 1 he has to go and play in it. I just never can get enough pic's though. He is growing up so fast(sigh) gotta luv him!
