My ds1 just amazed me !

My ds2 (3.5) was just very very cheeky to me. He then stormed into his brothers room and slammed the door. I was just about to go and retrieve him for a session of sitting on the naughty stair when I heard ds1 (6.5) say "You shouldn't talk to Mummy like that Xxxx, it's not nice".
Where did that come from !!! He sounded so grown up.

I then went downstairs and 5 minutes later they come down the stairs, ds1 in front saying "Xxxxx has got something to say to you". Ds2 then comes and says "Sorry Mummy". And we all have a big hug.

Maybe he'll be a diplomat when he grows up.

Fab, I'm a firm believer that what we reap we sow - DS1 is obviously copying the behaviour that he sees at home. Great parenting award

Excellent lucky you, all your hard work is paying off!

Wow I wish my older children were as mature! Today ds2 failed to tell me at the local pool that he had gone straight from the loo to his swimming lesson and in the time it took for me to realise this, ds1 and dd had allowed ds3 to disappear in the changing rooms. Why can't they just look out for each other a bit more?

So, a big pat on the back to your ds1 (and your ds2 for saying sorry - another of my bug bears!)

Ahh...what a lovely chap! Sounds like an ally to me!

My dd is a bit like this now she's 6 yrs; they seem to become quite hot on the 'rules' at this at this age. Overheard her saying to her younger brother and sister, 'Who's going to clear up this mess? Mummy's only got two hands you know!' Can't imagine where that came from

That's so sweet! You'll have no worries about your DS2 with a role model like your DS1 to look up to! See they love us really!

Fantastic, Kayleigh! Your boys sound lovely You can have a parenting gold star! (Hope that doesn't sound snidey - it's really not meant to!)

TinyGang, LOL at "Mummy's only got two hands you know!". How many times have I said that !

Kayleigh Tue 01-Feb-05 19:16:30

HunkerMunker, not snidey at all

Soooooo cute. Be very proud.

He is such a lovely boy - always has been!

Wow......I sooooo wish my boys were like that. They seem to have a secret rule between themselves to out-do each other for being rude to me.

You have lovely boys kayleigh, don't suppose you want to swap for a few years.......say 18 or so yrs?

Kayleigh Wed 02-Feb-05 12:13:35

emmatmg, if we swapped they'd all be little angels. They always are for someone else . That's why Grommit thinks my ds1 is so lovely.

Don't get me wrong both mine can be right little sods sometimes. But it is moments like this one that make it all worthwhile.
