This post is dedicated to all the parents out there that have been trying to teach your children to do things the right way! How do you know you have taught your children well? By the little things you see or hear them do and say. Now what brought this post on you may ask. Well, last night my husband calls me into the bathroom and this is what I saw....
My 3 year old Tristan had to well have is BM for the day and he went alone, and for the first time in his history wiped his own bum. And did not even tell us...but the signs were pretty clear that he was there! I was so proud! Cept I did tell him, he does not need to wrap the seat with toilet paper when at home!!! LOL....He has seen me do this many times in the public restrooms before placing him on the seat! So this is a question for all of you, In public restrooms do you hover? Or do you wrap the toilet in toilet paper before sitting on the thrown? Me I do the first choice :) But for a 3 year old..the second choice is easier!
As for my 13 year old daughter Kiersten, I see the things I have taught her everyday. She acts like a second mommy around this house. Always helping her little brothers and even just the other day...she started vacuuming without me having to ask her!!!! Now that my friends is a huge deal!!!!! :)
Now my 20 month old Sebastian, well he is still young but he does pick up trash even if he tries to eat it he gets us moving to get it! And if a water bottle is laying around he will surly bring it to you, cause he wants to drink it! But hey his job is to get us motivated to clean! He supervises really well! ;)
Onward to what I saw just this morning! My 10 year old Preston walking into school, and what does he do? He holds the door open for the girl behind him so she can go in first! Now that is being a gentleman ladies....
I am proud everyday of my kids but this is an extra special...Ahhhhh I feel so proud today! :0)
What have you seen in your kids to know you are teaching them well? :)
On the family side: Christmas is coming fast! I pretty much got done with my shopping this past weekend when I went to NC to shop with my mom! We had a great time! It was really nice to just get away. Cept, I could not sleep for the life of me. Missed my hubby's snoring and my kids keeping me up at night. Can you believe that!!! This coming weekend my dad and step-mom are coming up. We usually have our Christmas early with them, because everyone is so busy this time of year. So on Saturday or Sunday they will be up and we will enjoy our Christmas together, the kids are excited to spend some time with them and of course open some gifts. I am not sure if I will have time to post or make comments on your blogs next week, I will try. But I will be out of town some and of course it is Christmas so if I do it will be a short one! To all you have a great week, what is left of it and have an awesome weekend. To those that are not done shopping yet, Good Luck on your shopping adventures! :)
Again to those that have given me awards and tags! Thank you! I have been very busy like most of you this month, so I will not have a chance to post them at this time! But I wanted to say a huge Thank you to all that have given me the awards and tags! :)
