Y4 - 253/365: I'm the Mama!
I had an interesting conversation with the boy tonight. After he finished his tea he asked to be let out of his chair, "please." First, I'm over the moon that he used the word 'please' without me needing to prompt him, so I praised him for that and told him he was such a good "big boy" for using nice words.
This is where it began...
Ryan: No, Mama. I not a boy. YOU a boy! Me:::laughing:: Ryan, sweetie...you ARE a boy. Mommy is a girl.
Ryan:::adamant:: Mama, NO! I a girl! YOU a boy!
Ryan:::corrects himself:: No...you not a boy...you a MAMA!!!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
