Overheard in the car on the way home from the swimming lesson yesterday:
"Goodness Bean, you did such a GREAT job with your kick board today. I saw you listening to your teachers and doing just as they showed you. Then when you got into the water to swim, you kicked so BIG on your front AND on your back. I am really proud of you! Do YOU feel proud of you, too?"
"Yes, I do feel proud of me!"
"You really do?"
"Yes, I do. And Mama? Know who EWSE I'm proud of?"
"You're proud of me? Why?"
"I'm proud of you because you're smilin' and bein' sweet, and not grumping at me."
"Oh? Have I been grumping at you a lot lately?"
"Yes. You've been sooooo grumpy, Mama. Because you have that great big little baby in your tummy."
