Don't you just love those pressed powder candies?
Actually, I'm speaking of #7 he was so proud of himself and his growing knowledge the other day. It went something like this.
#7: Mom, is this my right foot for this shoe?
Boy Mom: Hooray! You got it right.
#7: Whew, I'm so happy I finally learned which is my right foots for my shoes. Kenneth (his cousin in the same kindergarten class) has a ring on his hand so he knows which is his, uhh, Pledge of Allegiance hand (he puts his right hand over his heart).
Boy Mom: That's a good trick for remembering your RIGHT hand (note the subtle teaching moment).
#7 : Yeah, Kenneth knows where his right (?) hand is (as he holds his right hand out somewhat confidently) and where his (nose and forehead wrinkle in thought as he looks at his other hand) umm, other hand is (he concludes with a proud smile as he holds out his left hand).
Yep, he's a smarty that #7 of mine.
