My Little Gentleman

January 27th, 2008

Kenny has started to turn into a little Man of Manners.

Today, as I got ready for church, he looked at me and said, “You look pretty, Mama!”   A few moments later I sneezed, and he said, “Bless you, Mama!”   Then after I fixed his breakfast, he said, “Thanks, Mama!   This is good!”

There is nothing but pure, uninhibited joy in his comments – joy in realizing that he is a part of the larger conversations that are going on around him.   Yesterday while out running solo errands, I picked up some yogurt he’d been asking for at the store.   When I got home, I showed it to him, and he gave a huge grin   and said, “Thanks for buying me my do-durt, Mama!”

My favorite is that as of the last week or so, he will look up at me at random moments and say, “I love you, Mama.”   Sometimes, of course, these “random” moments occur when I’m scolding him for some rascal-like behavior.   But the endearment gets me all the same.   I love you, too, little guy.
