Even an ordinary week around here has me laughing and in awe of kids’ funny minds time and time again.
Lesson #1: Never underestimate the power of a simple compliment. (Giving or receiving one, for that matter.)
Lesson #2: Apparently age 4 (going on 5) is when the “everybody has one but me” phase begins. Seriously, who/what is Ben 10? And why does every preschooler own his/its watch? (Except for Big, of course.)
Lesson #3: It’s time to prepare for the baby questions…any suggestions/resources welcome. I’ve gotta come up with something better than a horrified laugh next time Big asks, “So…will the doctor, like, bust your stomach open or something to get the baby out?”
Lesson #4: There’s a pretty good chance Little is more fashion savvy at age 2 than I am at age mumble, mumble. When I went to put on the same shirt for the third day in a row, he said, “You don’t want that shirt.” Which leads me to…
Lesson #5: There’s a chance I’m more prepared for a girl than I realized. Between Little changing outfits about four times a day and Big screaming like he’s at a Justin Bieber concert when we announce bath time, I think I have a good idea of things to come.
Here’s to a week of kind words, getting everything you want, not getting busted, looking good and giving in to the excitement of everyday moments.
How about you? Any lessons from your week to share?
