Here's my top 15 list of things I am proud he does. (I am bragging - deal with it!)
- He says "You're welcome" when someone says thank you to him.
- He uses the words, "available, realistically, behaviour, sensible, dinghy, ridiculous, and outrageous" in the correct context in a sentence.
- He still thinks chickpea curry is the best meal ever.
- If he gets two marshmallows with his fluffy - he will give one to me or Stud1. Because we share our things.
- He gives any unattended baby a quick kiss and stroke on the cheek - this may have to stop when he's 12...
- He randomly tells me he loves me or that I am the best mum he could have chosen.
- He asks people how their day is going.
- He knows where Africa, England and NZ are on a map.
- He likes to bake cakes and make dinner with me.
- He double checks before using words he thinks may not be suitable.
- He looks at other children who don't have the same code of conduct as we do and shakes his head muttering "that's not sensible..."
- He is able to play with others and share.
- He is able to occupy himself and make up games.
- He loves to look at books and often wants to read chapter books when we are at the library.
- He will greet the neighbours every time he sees them. Even if that means 17 times in an hour.
Your little man sounds like a real star! :-)ReplyDelete
Ah!! Doesn't he sound like a gentleman!! ChivalryReplyDelete
He is an awesome little boy!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you and Stud1 are doing a wonderful job parenting. I am very impressed with his vocabulary!ReplyDelete
He sounds amazing and I am sure he is. Great job being a fantastic mom. We can take credit for things like this and then not take credit for the bad stuff. They have free will and use it regularly. ;)ReplyDelete
Number 8 alone should make you proud beyond words. I know a lot of 25-year-olds who couldn't point out England on a map if you paid them. I may or may not be one of them.ReplyDelete
what a neat and clever boy you haveReplyDelete
probably coz he has a neat mum like you
