Last Day of 4

So, today is the last day that N will be 4.  Somehow, 5 sounds so old and wise. 

Last night I asked Nathanael what was his favorite part of being 4.  I was:

1)  Swimming (wow!)

2) Vacation

3)  Fishing

His least favorite part?  Trying new things.  This is not surprising from a kid who has transition issues.  Anyway, I then reminded him that he tried swimming this year (in fact he was petrified, scared to death scared of it) this past year.  That put his brain into a bit of a processing spin and nothing came out the other side.

Other milestones this year:

1)  Reading.  I think I mentioned, he’s good at it.  I LOVE this.  We can take no credit for this as we are terrificly bad at reading to him.  He asks us, we don’t initiate.

2) Writing.  Really quite improved.  If you look really closely at the below, you will see can make out “black spiderman mask.”  No idea on the rest.

3)  Engagment.  He’s a pretty social kid.  It takes a while for him to warm up to you but if you can make him laugh, you’re in.

4) Swimming.  Drama but he now loves it.

5) School.  He just loves his montessori and if he’s into it, I’m into it.

What a day.
