Calvin – 9/15/2012
Describe your son.
My little “Baby Bear” Calvin is silly, adventurous and just plain wild! He does the craziest things I didn’t expect as his age but he cracks me up!
How do you stay calm when surrounded by ALL that energy?
I’ll be honest….medication!
How do you instill gentlemanly behavior, actions, thoughts?
Even at his young age, my husband opens the door for me and tells him, “This is what you do for mommy and other ladies when you get big”.
What do you like to do with your son?
Anything he likes to do, which right now is swinging at the park, riding around in his wagon and other simple little infant games. He also loves to swim.
Where is your favorite place to shop for your son?
Babies R Us, love their deals!
What are some books/series your son likes to read?
None yet, but he listens to anything I read to him.
How do you handle a fighter?
Oh, he’s been in a few fights at daycare with other babies. He’s very strong willed about what he wants! All we can do at this stage is tell him no-no and that’s not nice.
The first time he fed himself spaghetti which was just last night. Him and the high chair was covered in sauce, it was even on his forehead!
I love being a boy mom because ______
everyday is an adventure!
Give us your best boy mom tip!
Let them be who they are going to be. Don’t get caught up in stereotypes like boys can only have athletic toys or for that matter tell you something (toy, clothing etc.) is “not boy enough”.
