One proud mama
Last week we attended a gym class for toddlers with one of our friends and neighbors. Jack was at school, and it was really the first time Sam would be doing anything like this alone. Most of the kids in the class were around three, and Sam being not quite 2.5 yet, was one of the youngest (albeit also the biggest!) kids in the class. I was a little worried at first how he might do, but let me just say he jumped right in there (literally!) and made his mama VERY proud! Not only did he follow all the teacher's instructions, but he did each activity WELL. In fact, many of the things the other kids couldn't do, Sam did correctly on the first try! The teacher even complimented him for following along so well and staying right with the class lesson plan. I watched as the other kids roamed around, ignoring instructions, or attempted to complete the tasks and my heart swelled with pride for my sweet Sammybear. It was his first opportunity to really shine without being in the shadow of his older brother, and shine he most certainly did. Way to go, Sammy!
