It has come to my attention my son is a ham.

It seems my son is a ham. Color me surprised (not really).

Today was the "Mother's Day Assembly" at his nursery school. Forty five 3 and 4 year olds singing the praises of dear old Mom. Isn't it great--LOL. At this age the girls are much more attentive to singing, but Anthony seems to hold his own.

Well, the director of the pre-school had to tell me how he comes in to her office with a book and reads to her (actually he describes the pictures, he may be smart, but he's not reading yet). He makes it a big production. The ladies in the office get a great kick out of him.

I discovered from one of the other mothers who was sitting in with the class on Tuesday, my son is the only child who needs no prompting from the teachers to talk about his show and tell items (this month--a toy weed wacker, with all the noisy bells and whistles--which was better than last month's 3 foot long and 1 1/2 foot tall motorcycle which I begged him not to bring). He's up there showing how the weed wacker works, running it along the wall and the edge of the play mat, and letting the other kids play with it--the teachers basically have to tell him to shut up and sit down, of course they say it much nicer than that--LOL.

Did I mention his nickname at home is Barrymore?

Ah yes- the joys of having a social child! Anthony sounds very comfortable in his environment, which is a testament to his parents! Not all children his age are able to socialize quite as well.

Which could be a blessing or a curse depending on the day I think.

That sounds like my grandson! I was a wallflower at that age, and so was my son. My DGS is the extrovert -- in that regard he is totally his mother's child. She has never met a stranger. MY DS and I are the introverts, even though we do quite well in the areas of public speaking and presentations. I was a drama major for a short while in college, and did community theatre as well. But put me in a social setting with a group of people I don't know, and I end up in the den with the other introverts watching a Jackie Chan movie!
