[Mailman Mason Monday] #postofficeadventuresofmasonb #part14

Monday, October 16, 2017

When I last left you, we had gotten through May 30, 2017. We had an event for work on June 4th and again on August 13th, so today I wanted to share all of our post office adventures between the two events.

So, without further ado, here are the pictures that I've shared on Instagram as well as the captions (+ the emojis!) that I've shared from June 14, 2017 to August 11, 2017.

06.14.17 // When your dentist has a panel of mailboxes outside the office, you stop to inspect them.

06.17.17 // When the mail man parks his truck practically right outside your front door, you detour to take a peek on the way to go play soccer. ⚽️✉️📮📬

06.19.17 // I'm not really sure why he (or I) didn't think of this earlier but today Mason discovered that he could step on the little railing at the bottom of the PO boxes and he could see in to our box (AND in to the back room!). He handed me each piece of mail from the box, one by one, and then I literally had to pry him off of there. He was enjoying listening in on them back there -- "Mom! Come listen! I hear them! Put your ear right here!". ✉️📮📬

07.10.17 // Someone had a lot of work to do this morning so he called in reinforcements -- meet Monk Monk and mini Dog Dog. 🐵🐶✉️📮📬 And if you remember Panda Panda from the other day, yes, apparently everyone has a double name. It's like Eddie the Echo Man. 
(remember that commercial? 😂)

07.11.17 // When your kid sees a real mailbox (compared to the mail slot at the post office or our apartment) for probably the second time EVER and thinks, "what is this thing? what's in there?" 

07.12.17 // Proud mama moment: as we were walking in to the post office, the man walking past us sneezed. Mason, completely unprompted, said "bless you". I'm not even really sure how he knew to say that other than overhearing Seth and I say it. The majority of the time I'm always saying "say thank you". Seriously impressed! ✉️📮📬 

07.13.17 // I opted to mail my moving announcements from my apartment's mail slot instead of taking them all to the post office, but you know I couldn't have done it without help from a certain little mail man. He was SO excited to be able to mail so many things at once! 🏠✉️📮📬

07.17.17 // Last PO run as a four year old! 😱😭🎂✉️📮📬

07.24.17 // Monday morning mail run to pick up my work mail and to pick up some boxes to send some fun mail to friends! 📦✉️📮📬

07.25.17 // My little mail man had a little helper today! 🐼✉️📮📬

07.27.17 // It was "Post Office Adventures without Mason B" today so I leave you with a picture from yesterday when Mason and Panda Panda were helping me do my first mailing of 200 envelopes! 

08.02.17 // Apparently he thinks the post office is full service now! 😜 
"My box is here, please push the mail in!" 😂✉️📮📬

08.03.17 // He decided that Panda Panda had seen enough of the post office lately and it was time for Mack truck to have a turn. 😜✉️📮📬

08.07.17 // Mason was in heaven this morning to see the post office's tow truck towing a mail truck! I wish you could see the "live" version of this photo. He was totally waving and saying hi! 🚐✉️📮📬

08.11.17 // He insisted on bringing his school photo with us in to the post office to pick up the mail.
I'm still confused by it but went with it anyway. Kids, man. So confusing. 🤔✉️📮📬 


A little back story... 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.

You can find more of our post office adventures on Instagram here.


  1. I love your captions, they make the series so fun!

  2. I adore these pictures. I really hope he becomes a mailman when he grows up!

  3. I hope this tradition continues for years! So sweet!

  4. I love all of your Mailman Mason photos. He is such a great helper!

  5. You have been taking such awesome photos lately, lady! I love how you make each post office picture different and capture the sweetest shots of your boy! And, dude, Mason is getting tall.

  6. Always love the different views, angles, and post office activities..!! I especially love seeing how much he's grown/changed from time to time. Such a fun tradition/series, I say keep it up for sure!!

  7. I don't know what it is, but I LOVE the one with the fence and mail truck behind Mason.
    I also still think you should do a comparison of the very first mail picture next to a recent mail picture to see how much Mason has grown and changed.


I love your comments and I love connecting with my readers! I respond back via email so please make sure that your email is connected to your profile. Thanks for stopping by :)
