"Mom, I love being so old and responsible because it makes you so proud. And I'm proud of myself in my very own heart." -Connor McManus
It seems like every time my children get a year older there is a new "phase" we get to endure ummmm I mean enjoy.
2 year old: Saying "No", learning time-outs, sharing, coming when Mommy calls your name, staying in bed, and so much more
3 year old: Trouble finishing meals, lying begins, being a little too independent, obeying Mom and Dad, and so on
4 year old: DRAMA!
5 year old: OH MY WORD! I love it. We have a little man who has a fun sense of humor, a desire to learn more and more each day, someone who can be reasoned with, a human being who actually makes wise choices, a older sibling that takes care of his younger siblings, confident in his beliefs, a scholar, a talented athlete, and we're only a couple months into this WONDERFUL age!
Does any other Moms agree with me? Are 5 year olds just this wonderful or have I just been living in the toddler years WAY TOO LONG.
