The Boy is pretty quiet and soft spoken. He is also at school a lot of the time and I can't catch all the things he does there.
Having said that, I LOVE my son. He is the best little boy ever. I hear a lot of horror stories about little boys and how crazy and into stuff they are. I have friends who's sons sound a little nightmarish. ;-)
But not my guy. He is kind and thoughtful. He is courteous and loves his little sisters. He is always asking if he can help me make dinner, or do the dishes or sweep and mop. He tells me he loves me all day long. He isn't really too rough or rowdy. Though he can hold his own in a wrestling match with dad. He would just sit and have me read to him all day, or play his video games if he could He likes to be outside and is always looking for new friends. He is pretty sensitive and gets his feelings hurt kind of easy. But don't let his sweet countenance fool you. He doesn't let any one mess with him and if your doing something he doesn't like, he'll let you know! ;-)
He likes to be goofy. I can't hardly take a normal picture of the kid, he sticks his tongue out or scrunches up his face or opens his mouth as wide as it will go.
He's always got a joke for you, his favorite is the interrupting cow knock knock one. He's got it down pretty good and has made up a few other interrupting things as well. He is constantly showing me his " new cool moves" where he flips around or does a spin off of the couch. He is an amazing super hero! He always wants to save me. In many ways he already has.
Sure there are times when he gets angry and pouts or fights with Little Girl or doesn't like what I have to say. He is a normal little kid after all. But at the end of the day, he's the best little man I could have ever asked for.
Sometimes raising little girls can be frighting. The thought of them as teenagers is something that lurks around in my mind as one of my biggest challenges to come. But I have never had those thoughts about The Boy. I am not afraid of what he might do or become. I am excited to see what the future holds for him. That might be unfair, but I can't help it.
