Focus of a Four-Year-Old
He replied, "Big biggest 4!" It made me laugh. So often I think of him as an older child. After all, he is the oldest child in the house.
Still, he is only 4. He takes pride in his work, though.
When I picked him up from school today he was sitting at a table with a pencil and some papers while the rest of his class was in circle time with the teacher. I asked her if he had gotten in trouble. She said "No, he just hates to leave a project unfinished. He has extreme focus for the task at hand so we try to let him work all he wants when time allows."
It's true. He does have extreme focus, and not just at working. I could learn a thing or two from my Boy.
When he plays, he plays hard.
When he sleeps, he sleeps hard.
When he protests, he protests HARD.
But when he loves...
Oh his love: that's what comes the easiest.
Now if only he would stop whining so hard. :)
