~Not ashamed~

Here is my son.

This is him standing on his head while on the train to visit Papa & Mema. The boy just likes to stand on his head.


You know how they say today's classrooms just aren't set up for little boys? That they get in trouble, then they get labeled ADD because they can't sit still in those little chairs for hours on end??


Well thank goodness we will be home educating!! With what little "sitting" we have done for pre-school/K work thus far - this has been Isaac's favored position. Sitting right atop his own head.

The thing is, just when I think it's hopeless - that he couldn't have possible heard me with all that blood rushing to his head, let alone actually *retained* anything - he surprises us all by spouting off facts we had no idea he knew!

It's amazing!Little boys really will be little boys.

And THAT'S OKAY!

So go for it, little man. There are enough moments in this world when you will have to learn to sit still, to conform, to do what the masses are doing, just to be "normal" and accepted. In this moment, in these years, in these home educating times, go ahead and be a little boy.
Stand on thy head, oh little one!

You go, dude man~

Oh my goodness, I check back after a few days, and you have been posting away! That story about your son's statement in church.... hilarious, and embaressing for you. We don't call it the P word, we call it their "things". "Don't play with your thing!" Okay, juvenile, but we just aren't comfortable using the P word. Besides, we don't have to worry about embaressing things like you went through when we call it that! Who knows how long we will call it that.....
