In my last entry I told you about my son Bryson’s new found freedom with the word “no!” Well I think he learned a lesson just days after the post.
Here’s what happened. I was running some bath water for Bryson to bathe and he didn’t want to get in. He was pulling and tugging to get away from me while I was removing his clothes. I said “Bryson, stop before you hurt yourself!” Before I knew it, he broke loose and ran right into the doorjamb on the door frame with his eyebrow (which he split right in two)!!
I hate that he learned a lesson that way, but three stitches later, he still has a fancy for saying “no!” What can I say? He’s still a work in progress.
On another family note, this past weekend was the father/daughter dance at Highland Creek Elementary. My daughter, Kennedy, was so excited! She’s not your typical girly-girl; she likes sports, gym shoes and ponytails. However, she was very excited about her new dress, and couldn’t wait to wear it. Every night before going to bed she would remind her dad that he needed a chocolate shirt to match her chocolate dress.
I love the fact that this dance allows for father/daughter bonding. My husband goes all out making sure that he is setting a proper dating experience example for our daughter. Opening doors for her and holding her hand, etc. Hopefully this will help instill in her what a proper date should look and feel like when that time actually does come.
Oh and we are so not ready for that yet!!!!
Until next time,
