Priorities

This morning my 5 year old ran ahead to the bus stop. My 7 year old stayed behind and walked with me. My 7 year old turned to me and said, "Mom, I don't know why he is running. He is using up all of his energy running and won't have any energy to talk when he gets to the bus stop."

My 7 year old does have his priorities.

I wonder if that will always be their nature? Running ahead vs. more laid back. Very cute story.

Cute, Cookie.... Awe-Kids!!!! They all do have alot of energy.. I raised three sons---so I know what you are going through. I wouldn't go back to those years at all and do it all again---but loved it at the time. Wish I had written down all of the great things they said!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Hmmm, yes, going to school is all about the social scene- isin't it?
I was the type who never felt I had to talk, n mostly avoided it... I was a younger sibling
