Encouraging Words

It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

Love is in the air!!

I think puppy love is one of the most adorable things in life. My son, who's now in PreK, has left his mother's day out class behind. They've all moved on to their schools, and have new class mates now.

He came home a little bummed one day and told me the other day that he didn't have any cute girls in his class. He missed his girlfriend from mother's day out. I've written about them before in previous blogs. They just love each other, and it's so adorable to watch.

So yesterday, I set up a play date at the Orr Family Farm.

They've got everything from pony rides, train rides, pumpkin picking hay rides, playgrounds, mazes, and much much more. The kids have a ball there.

This little greek doll and her younger sister came to play the whole day away with my son, who couldn't wait to see 'his girlfriend'.

First things first...she brought him another love note, and then it was off to play. They all three had the best time. The only problem was that the 3 year old, younger sister, was fighting for my son's affections as well. They both fought over who'd sit next to him.

It was every man's dream...two beautiful greek goddesses vying for his attention. My son though wasn't having any of it. He played well with both girls, but when it came time for the train ride there just wasn't enough room for all of us to fit on one bench. Both mothers and three children was one person too much for that space. Little sister would have to sit on her momma's lap and she started throwing a tantrum when she couldn't sit to him. He finally leaned over and said, "Listen, I don't want to sit next to you! I'm on a play date with your sister."

Of course that hurt her feelings and she cried even harder. My son was just being honest, not realizing the impact of his words. I told him that he needed to apologize and although he didn't understand why, he leaned across and told her he was sorry.

Later when I was telling my husband what a little girl magnet our son was and how he made a little girl cry, my son just started laughing. He had the biggest twinkle in his eye, and said, "But I told her I was sorry!"

You could tell he was enjoying every minute of that story, and in my mind's eye I could see 10 years into the future. And I was scared of what I saw....lots of girl's calling my house bugging me, to talk to my son, while my son just laughs!
