With a household full of boys, the sweet moments can be hard to come by, but yesterday I came across one that just melted my heart and filled me with pride. My six-year-old son is in the gifted program this year, and while this meant that he is no longer in the same class with his best “boy” friend, he was lucky that his best “girl” friend made it into the program with him.
Since then they have been stuck together, and my son always talks about his friend. Yesterday, he decided that he wanted to make a necklace for his her, because he had gotten this little dolphin figure as a reward for good work at school. He put beads on the necklace, and then he sat down and wrapped it. He then asked me to make a perfect bow, and oh yes it had to be perfect.
Then he continued on to making the sweetest card for his friend.
Through the hustle and bustle of a day with three rambunctious boys, seeing such sweetness from my son was the best way to end the day.
