So long story short I had a massive argument today and had to take my DS upstairs. I was sitting on the floor upset and he realised I was upset and came and sat next to me and was almost sorry of comforting me.
He is only just 13 months and my initial reaction was Omg I love you and that is amazing but your so so young to be comforting me.
Can someone please tell me is he amazingly perceptive or is this just normal behavior as I'm kind of in awe smile

Both my boys are fabulous at knowing when I need a hug. I'm not certain what age this started at, sounds like you and your ds will be great friends.

Did he see the argument? If he did and it's your partner that you were arguing with then this really isn't a good thing.

Yup I think so redcar

(We are temporarily living with my parents and the argument was with my mum cos he shat in the bath! She's totally neurotic and was being completely unreasonable)
