I just had to share, because this really cracked me up and I'm not sure where it came from. The other night I sent Calvin to my shower to get cleaned up. Luke was in the other shower at the time, so Calvin went off on his own. It really hits me now how quickly he is growing - he can bathe, dry, and dress himself. So this particular night he takes his shower (being sure to use my foot scrub to clean his feet), gets out, gets his towel and dries off. I periodically went in to check on him and first found him sitting on top of the toilet, towel wrapped around his waist, with my nail clippers, cutting his finger and toenails. He has never done that before. The next time I came back I found him sitting on the counter with a comb, wetting and "styling" his hair (which he just got buzzed, so there really is nothing there). I watched in amusement as he totally checked himself out in the mirror, gave a satisfied little grin, then hopped down and went to get dressed. It was hilarious, but I couldn't help but thinking, isn't he a bit young for this? His latest obsession is tucking in his shirt and wearing a belt. Metro???
