That's right my little guy was promoted last week from Pre-School to Kindergarten. The year started off shaky for both of us, separation anxiety hit us both. With me crying in the parking lot and him asking if I was going to be waiting for him in the car. Allot has changed since September. For one, I got nixed on our weekly parent volunteer duties when Peter stepped in which allowed Sophia and I to go onto her Mommy & Me classes. Secondly he just grew up just a bit not really needing me to hoover over him so much. Thus the year of new words and independence has come upon us all from talks of
- body parts (not the common ones)
- where do dead people go
- how was he born
And on and on, PeterRay talks pretty much from the time he wakes up to the time he sleeps with endless questions, he truly is our human sponge and with that we have to explain everything very clearly to him and truthfully for that matter. It is wonderful teaching him because in allot of ways he's teaching me so many new things, his undivided interest in airplanes and cars, he watches documentaries on both and is glued to the facts of how they are made to what they can do. The more Innocent facts of how he doest see race; perfect example, someone told him our new President Barrack Obama was black and PeterRay replied no he's not he's brown. To religion differences, asking if Buddha was God in Chinese; just one god in his mind. How I wish more adults saw things through a child's mind and eyes, I truly believe our world would be a better place.
PeterRay is our comedian, our politician and our engineer all in one. I'm so proud of him.
