It has been an “exciting” kid week in our house.
My oldest got his first bee sting. It has been the first bee sting our children have experienced that they remember. His sister was stung when she was under a year and it was devastating! He handled it well…really well…until I hugged him and then he fell apart.
My daughter finally has 2 loose teeth…her brother has lost a handful and she has been waiting pretty patiently and definitely with eagerness.
And my youngest who may possibly have the biggest heart of anyone, but who also is quite curious, fierce hugging, all boy and rather wreckless, fell on the back of his head this weekend while playing…small scrape, but being as it was his head, lots of blood. This child will make me gray. He is okay…completely! 🙂
Something else we began working on this week is addressing adults by saying “sir” or “ma’am” or their name (Mr./Mrs. _________). They have always used last names with adults, but when they address people I want them to use those names in greetings and thank yous, etc, or in yeses or nos. My oldest is doing quite well. The other two are a little shy, but will get there.
That is a week in our life. 🙂
