Today's Highlight -- Fun One About My Son


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 05, 2012

This wouldn't fit as a Status Update, so I'm doing a quick blog post!
**

Today's highlight was when my 9yo son ran up and said, "Daddy, I reached 5 goals today (including swimming the length of the pool without taking a breath)!" Fun to realize that your kids ARE LISTENING even when they act like they aren't, then have things like this pop out of them :). What was your highlight? -- SparkGuy

SparkCheers!

    emoticon My Grandmother used to say "Little Pitchers Have Big Ears" as a warning to be Aware of what we said and did in front of our children. Obviously she was right!!

  It is very exciting when children learn positives from us by osmosis. Some of these lessons will serve them and us well for a lifetime. Just keep sparing on!

    It's a great feeling knowing we are teaching the next generation positive things. Your son is learning self-respect, something that lacks in today's world. SparkGuy, what a terrific role model you are!

    emoticon Sometimes we think the children are playing or in "their stuff" and the reality is that they are always "watching and listening" what older persons are saying.
