Glasses OFF!

Elijah has gotten into the wrestling mood the last few nights. It is something fun we can do! When we wrestle he tells me "Glasses OFF". This is something he learned from his big brother. Whenever Jacob wanted to wrestle, when he was just a small thing, he would walk up to his dad or me and say "Glasses off" and we knew it was time to wrestle. I can't believe how much time has passed since I last wrestled Jacob. He is JUST too big and has been too big for a long time. I am glad that Elijah is still young enough that he wants to wrestle....however he is getting almost TOO big for me to wrestle! I need to enjoy it while I can!
