Yesterday the primary sang in church.
“Children Holding Hands around the World.”
During most of it I could pick out Conner’s voice. I think we have an issue with blend… but I was proud that he was singing and not staring blankly into the crowd.
Then came the chorus.
Wow… the kid has some pipes. He’s not messin’ around when he sings. I was proud, and I also want to sing more as a family so that he realizes that he can sing loud, but not crazy. Of course, the fact that Spencer told me “NOT GOOD SINGER” this morning in the car does tend to dampen my spirits….
Went to Walmart this morning. Bought some stuff before the Christmas rush comes on. I think i’m pretty much done, sad to say. Well, happy to say — I suppose. Spencer needs a few more items. What’s everyone else getting their almost 3 year old boy?
Also, how does everyone deal with the problem of “mine” after they open presents? it’s not really something we’ve had to deal with much before now. Spencer’s always been fine with Conner seeing his stuff. But, we also don’t really have “my” sections of our toy cabinet. Pretty much everything is shared (unless it is unsafe for Spencer). I worry at Christmas, that I want them to have some “mine” time — but also share. Thoughts? Experienced moms — shower me with knowledge.
