Our Kid is Awesome
Gareth gets to watch movies on Mondays while I do the laundry. (And lately more often as well, but we're going to do better about that this week.) He was sitting there happily watching his movie while I checked some blogs and whatnot on the computer. I went and told him that in fifteen minutes it was time for a nap. Then I proceeded to lose track of time until I heard his door shut. Yes, my child just turned off his movie and went to put himself down for a nap - at exactly the time I previously told him would be nap-time - all on his own. I doubt this will become a habit with him (though I certainly wouldn't mind). Some days he's so exasperating and some days, like today, he's awesome. I love awesome days - and could use a few more of them!
