Kids do a lot of things. Some really cool, some baffling, some horrifying. So, in the spirit of threads of this nature that have been successful in other groups, a place to report what your kid just did. Pics encouraged but not mandatory (especially since it's impossible to get everything on film). Commentary/discussion is welcome.
Last night, the big guy took his first step on his own (or so the wife tells me...I was at a meeting...boo...)
The big guy just got to ride in the car facing forward for the first time. Not only was he relieved that his legs were no longer crammed against the seat, he also spent the whole time laughing because it was so much fun.
Thats cool. My daughter is starting pre-preschool. I think it is more of a day care type thing but here apparently it is common for the kids here to start going at 18 months. With her being our first I am glad she will be interacting with other kids.
my kids started "preschool" when they were a year old too -- i don't know why they call it that either, it's basically daycare. but they've just started kindergarten, and so far the thing i've heard the most about is the cafeteria food, lol. they LOVE it!
Here's a fun one: this morning my four year old son wanted to listen to a book on-line. The Screen Actors Guild has a website where their members read children's books and my son has become obsessed with listening to these stories. Anyway, my wife got him settled in the chair and pulled up the website. Then we started discussing my day. During this time, my son grabbed the mouse, selected the story he wanted to hear, chose the appropriate internet speed, and then switched the video to fullscreen. He then settled in to listen to the story.
My wife and I watched him do this and she commented that he understands computers better than her parents.
Our son just started really walking everywhere. He's been walking around with those walking toys for quite a while, and was more than capable of walking on his own, he just crawled so fast that he didn't see a reason to change.
Within a few days of walking on his own, he was already opening doors and climbing up everything he could. there's not enough baby-proofing in the world to stop him.
My son is becoming too pop culture savvy and it's all my fault. The other day, he was going around singing the chorus of "Bad Romance" (primarily the Ra Ra part). And now he's telling us, "Look at yourself. Now back to me." Yeah, he saw the Old Spice commercials (and the Grover parody).
