Letters are being learnt at school and in the space of a few weeks, he is writing his name and doing drawings that actually resemble something! This is great, but we are getting through so much paper, it's untrue!!
He received a compliment on his behaviour in Wetherspoon's today. When I heard the words, "what a lovely little boy!", I turned and searched for the aforementioned angel child and saw no-one before realising the man was talking about Rhys! Considering any visit to an eatery or 'drinkery' of any sort normally results in him having things confiscated, this was a welcome change indeed! The lady in the newspaper shop we had visited just prior to Wetherspoon's looked a tad alarmed when he loudly said that we, "are off to the pub now!!" :-S
Kids, eh?! They can make us go from wanting to tear our hair out to wanting to smother them with kisses in a nanosecond. No wonder they say being a parent is the hardest job there is. I can only hope that I am providing him with the right tools to equip him well for adulthood. only time will tell, but I do know one thing; whatever this child chooses to do in the future, it won't be 9 to 5 and will undoubtedly involve adrenaline!!
He has produced a variety of weird and wonderful drawings today, the best being 'portraits' of his Nanny and Grandad! If his drawings were, in fact, representative of their subject matter, Grandad would be about 9 feet tall with 6 fingers on each hand and the strangest face ever and Nanny would be wobbling on unequal legs!!
Gotta love 'em!!
