A Progress Report

My little man came home with a progress report yesterday. As I looked over the progress report I noticed he just needed to "work" on two things:
  1. making good use of his free time and
  2. waiting his turn to speak when in a group.

When I spoke with my little man as we looked over his progress together I saw such a big boy. I know he is a big boy-yet that is my little man.

  • The one I saw in the Ultrasound appearing to throw a football.
  • The one that let me enjoy my pregnancy.
  • The one who gave me an easy delivery.
  • The one who is a momma's boy.
  • The one who says good morning to me everyday when he wakes up.
  • The one who says please and thank you at the right times.
  • The one who has kept me strong through my divorce.
  • The one who has tested my discipline techniques.
  • The one who tells me he has missed me when he is with his daddy.
  • The one who tells me he loves me as he gives me kisses and hugs any chance he gets.

I could go on and on about my little man. At the age of four I can deal with him having to learn to wait his turn to speak, at least he does so. And with making good use of their free time, I don't do that myself. He is definitely right on track.

What a great entry! Your little man sounds like one amazing kid! ;)

And for the record, as a Kindergarten teacher, I'd like to see the day when all students wait their turn to speak!
Although it can be a tad disruptive at times, I'd much rather have a student really excited to talk, then not talk at all. ;)

Sounds like you have a pretty amazing kid on your hands. Don't worry about the things he needs to work on... it is good that he is so eager to share his ideas with his friends. Kids his age aren't able to see outside themselves and see that others would like to share too, especially when they get excited about something they like. ;)
