Over the last two days now Charles has been doing Fun to Color, and Fun to Cut all by himself. As a mom its hard for me seeing Charles cutting papers as he might cut his fingers. It’s also difficult for him to have a grip of the scissors as he is left handed. Though watching him makes me very happy knowing Charles is very happy and proud on what he does. With Charles being left handed I am having a hard time teaching him how to write his name as well.
Sometimes I struggle with letting him fail and want to do everything for him. Doug says and he is right that sometimes you have to fail to learn. That is pretty hard though for a mom to see her child fail. Just yesterday, I taught Charles how to drive his bicycle without training wheels and I am more scared than him. I’m sure he’ll learn how to drive before the end of this month. Today it was raining so we didn’t go outside.
Though Charles has been wanting to go outside when it is raining so he can jump in the muddy puddles which we never have in our yard. Well can you believe July is almost over? What have you been doing on your summer break so far? I’m sure you are all enjoying your summer break before the school year begins. As for me, I try to live my life one day at a time and look forward to a new day.
My son, Charles is growing up too fast and spending more time with him is all I can do before he goes to kindergarten. Sending him to school would definitely a problem for Charles and I as we have never been apart for a longer period of time. Every time I will say to Charles that I am going to miss you when you go to school Charles always says; why can’t you be a teacher which makes me laugh. Just like when I said; you were inside my tummy when you were little and Charles said; why did you eat me?
