The next honoree in my positive kid-talk is my dear sweet 5-year-old son.
I love him more than words could ever express, though he does give me plenty to whine/complain/vent about (especially today). Yet, I will force myself to share only what I love about him today.
- He has a very kind and gentle spirit.
- He really is a good big brother…he does love his brothers and sister even though he doesn’t always show it…He wants to protect his little brother…if only the two-year-old wasn’t so independent.
- He is loving and affectionate and absolutely loves his mama.
(yes this was him when he was 2 but I just love that picture/moment so much and really miss when he was like this)
- He adores and admires his daddy; he loves to play wild with him and loves making him proud and happy with him. He also wants to be be big and have strong muscles just like him.
- He has an incredibly creative personality and imagination; he’s always creating or playing in his head about something or another.
- His favorite thing to pretend is “Mass” and being a priest, he usually calls himself whatever priest is currently at our parish.
- He is also currently obsessed with drawing Larry Boy, Earth and Canis Majoris–the “biggest star in the whole universe!!” as he likes to say several times a day. He also compares everything to Canis Majoris and is continuously amazed with how big it is in comparison to us.
- He gets extremely excited about things he loves (like Pump it Up) or once he figures something out or learns something new. He learned how to tie his shoes in one day–something we were all happily surprised by, including him!
- He loves building towers and houses and train tracks and just about anything else he thinks of. (I was confused when his Kindergarten screening recommended he practice playing with blocks more…they obviously don’t know him well yet.)
- Though he is my more timid one, he’s becoming more brave. He didn’t cry or get scared at all this time with the 4th of July fireworks and even held a sparkler!
Though he tries me so, I really do love this kid. I’m excited to see how he develops and grows this year in Kindergarten…though I will miss him, too.
