I have to describe four-year-old DS in three words on his admissions paperwork for reception. I'm stumped (and his siblings are not helping by suggesting things like "annoying", "blonde" and "likes pizza". Could you describe your child in the words?
There's loads of other stuff too on the form before anyone gets cross about schools summing up children in so few words, blah, blah, blah.

My DS, almost 4 is independent, funny and affectionate. He is loads of other things but I think you would have the measure of him from those.

'confident, head-strong, capable' because 'bossy know-it-all' wasnt appropriate although true

Chatty, loving and cautious!

Ds1 - vulnerable, adorable, meerkat-loving
Ds2 - eccentric, confident, hilarious

I feel this makes them sound slightly peculiar......but then, I suspect they are slightly peculiar. In a good way. grin

2.5 yr old DS told me yesterday "I'm beautiful and clever and kind and brave and..Erm....JUMPY!" And then did a few jumps.

So selfconfident, silly and cute!

I think you just need to be positive in the words you choose, eg if nosey that is inquisitive, if he won't stop talking curious, if quiet he is thoughtful etc
