The day Levi and I brought Joel a lunch, he asked if I wanted to try to leave Levi by himself to ride in the tractor. He only had about an hour of work left and he was pretty close to our house if I needed to run back and pick him up. So we decided to give it a shot not knowing how Levi would do. He has only ridden in my lap so far.
We buckled him in next to his daddy…he wasn’t sure what to think at first.
And then he realized that he was getting to stay ALL BY HIMSELF. So exciting.
He blew me a kiss and that is when I had to leave my baby behind. I know it is ridiculous, but I felt like it was his first day of kindergarten. He is not supposed to be big enough to ride in a tractor by himself!
I drove home and wondered if he would make it on his own or if Joel would be calling me in a few minutes. About an hour later Joel drove the tractor right up to our front door to drop Levi off. He of course had done great and loved every minute of his ride. And I was so glad to have my baby home.
He had Cheetos and chocolate all over his face. Joel said he was falling asleep in the tractor and he had to feed him to keep him awake. So we headed inside, cleaned him up, and off to bed he went.
So, I made it through Levi’s first solo ride in one piece…trying to ignore the fact that my baby boy is turning into such a big boy. A bit over dramatic…I know. Like I said, let’s just pray that I can blame the crazy emotions on the pregnancy hormones!
