A moment to brag


Its not often that as a parent we get to see our kids in a situation that we are not normally there. Today though I was the Mother helper in Caleb's preschool class and I have to say that I was so proud of him. There are 8 other boys in the class and Caleb was one of the best behaved. He listened when he was suppose to, waited his turn, talked nice to the other kids, shared in a way that I did not think possible, sat quietly during the lessons, and not once did he hit, hurt, or spit on other kids (which I have to say 5 other boys couldn't stop from doing those things over and over)! I was just so proud of him! He even gave up his candy bag when the parent that sent them didn't send enough! Sometime we only focus on how are kids are misbehaving and I feel like I always am saying "no" but today it made me take a step back and see just how wonderful and well behaved he is! He sure made my day and I'm so proud of him and love him so much!

As a grandparent it is so rewarding to see the next generation being as good or better than your own children were- which is much better than we were! I know these special spirits are saved for the LAST DAYS! Good work Mom and dad, this is what we call a PAYDAY!

I have seen him really mature the last few times we have been together. Being a grandparent is great!

What a good kid! Your house is looking good too! It's all exciting but getting all the interior stuff done is the most exciting part I think.
