Not surprisingly, he’s doing so well. Being the oldest child, he won’t have the benefit of his own wise teaching like his brothers will. It’s his first interaction playing regularly with other kids his own age, his firsts for a lot of things.
He’s surviving and thriving like a trooper and I’m so proud of him. Way to go baby one.
My Alexander is so thoughtful of others–that’s what his teacher said about him. He recognizes the needs of others, even in the midst of his own play and seeks to meet those needs. WOW, and he’s only 3.
I see this at home too. He’s always asking me, “Are you OK mommy?” or after I yawn or sigh, he’ll ask, “Are you tired?”
Whenever the babies cry, he always says, “Baby’s crying…let’s go see.”
He’s in tune at such a young age, not preoccupied with himself, but with others and their well-being. He’s going to be an excellent friend and husband one day. He’s already an excellent son.
