My little gentleman.......
I went to pick up Max from school on Friday. As I was waiting at the gate for the kids to come out from their Valentine parties, I looked up to see where Max was. I watched him as he followed his class out to the gate. All of a sudden a girl behind him tripped and spilled her backpack and all of her valentine's all over the ground. Without being told or asked, he dashed back to help the girl pick up all of her things. He then proceeded to help her put everything back in her backpack and then even helped her up! Then he carried the rest of her things to the pickup spot. He made sure she was okay and not hurt. When he finally arrived, I asked him if that was one of his friends and he said, "No, she is in a different class. She just needed my help." I was so proud of him! It brought tears to my eyes to see him behave so gallantly. My little boy is growing up so fast! I can't believe the difference a year has made in him. He is still as stubborn as can be, but man oh man is he a sweetheart! Oh how I love my little gentleman!
