[Mailman Mason Monday] #postofficeadventuresofmasonb #part10

Monday, April 10, 2017

When we stopped doing the Picture Perfect Project last year, I stopped sharing Mason's post office pictures on the blog. I had deemed it my "photo project of the year" through the PPP and when it ended, I didn't stop taking pictures of him at the post office, but I forgot to share them here too. I was thinking about it the other day and I want to continue to share them here even though I don't technically "have a reason" to each month. So instead of sharing per month, I'm going to share per event cycle (for my work - essentially why we go to the post office so often). We have seven events per year and as the events approach, we go to the post office more often and as they pass, we go less often.

Almost done with catch up! When I last left you, we had gotten through January 13, 2017.

Here are the pictures that I've shared on Instagram as well as the captions (minus the emojis) that I've shared from January 30, 2017 to March 3, 2017.

1.30.17 // 
"Mason, where are we going?"
"To the post office! Turn left Mommy!"

2.3.17 // Pit stop to do a little work (mail a letter) and now we're off for a fun day with @desireemacke and the kids! Happy Friday!

2.8.17 // "Mommy, what's in here?"

2.13.17 // Don't worry, Mom. I got this.

2.13.17 // And then he ASKED to take a picture with the mail truck AND insisted on holding the letters (For real! I had nothing to do with it! I was trying to leave) and my heart exploded.

2.15.17 // "Mason, you can't stick all of those in there at once. It's too thick. Just a few." "Ok, mom. Just a FLEW." I corrected him multiple times "few" "flew" "few" "flew" and I think he thought he was saying it right each time. But then it was too cute to keep correcting.

2.17.17 // I had to stop by the post office on the way home and since it's during business hours, the main lobby was open (and super empty... because it's pouring and nobody is dumb enough to go out in the rain like I am). Of course Mason was intrigued (he NEVER gets to go in there!) so after we mailed our letters, I let him walk around. They have a whole different set of self service machines and of course he went straight to them. I was so busy taking a picture that I didn't notice that he changed all the settings to Spanish. Luckily it was an easy fix... but then we were outta there!

2.20.17 // Since today is a holiday and Mason is home with Seth, I had to go to the post office by myself. So! Here's a little Throwback Monday to a week or so ago when we went to the post office twice in one day. One thing is for sure... life is never boring with this silly, chocolate covered face kid!

2.22.17 // Mid-afternoon hump day mail run.

2.27.17 // You know it's been one of THOSE Mondays when you finally have a free second to post a picture from 7:45am at 6:00pm. Monday, I can't say that I'm sad to see you go.

3.1.17 // On the way to school, after stopping by the post office, I said "Where are we going?". "To school!" Then a school bus drove by and Mason pointed it out. I said "Yeah, that bus is taking kids to school. But you don't take the bus, I drive you. Mommy's taxi." And Mason said "No! Mommy's Jeep!" (Touché kid, you're right.) I told him he was right and I drive him everywhere in my Jeep and then he said thank you, completely unprompted. Talk about heartwarming. This Wednesday is off to a great start!

3.3.17 // Annnnnd I'm officially out of a job. Mason can reach the mail in the PO Box without me. Guess I'm back to just being the taxi.

  1. LOVE the alliteration and every time I see him on his tippy toes I swoon a little. So cute!

  2. This post reminded me that I have something for Mason. I need to get to it and put it in the mail ASAP.

  3. All I keep thinking when I see this recent photos are how big and how tall he is getting. Slow down Mason!

  4. Sigh, you need to make this into a Chatbook series. Im mean, youll basically see how much Mason has grown over a year! Love this.

  5. MY FAVORITE of all your gram posts!! I love seeing Mason doing his thing at the PO. And, you really do need to ask your mail man about a little truck tour!
