My son was little, and he stuck out his hand and said, “Look at the fly I killed, Daddy.” he was eating a banana so I washed his hands with anti-bacteria soap. I asked him, “How did you kill that fly all by yourself?” “He said, “It was easy. I hit it with my banana.”
As parents, I think we worry too much. Especially the first one. A 99 temperature an we’re at the doctor’s office stat! A bump on the head definitely means bleeding in the brain.
We wait and wait for him to say his first word and take his first step. The video camera is always at the ready. We’re will not miss any of this, we wait. Where does it usually happen? At a baby sitter’s house.
I read about a boy who was four years old an had yet to speak a word. They decided to take him to a doctor to see what was going on. The mom began to explain where and why they were going. The boy said, “Until now, there’s been nothing worth talking about.
But the time the third or fourth time around, if someone hits their head on something, the mom’s response, unless it’s really bad is something like “Leave him alone. He’ll be alright.”
