As I was tucking Ethan in tonight, I was stressing to him the importance of "soft feet" in the morning. You see, I am blessed with a child that keeps to himself in the morning and lets the rest of us sleep in. When Ethan wakes up, he goes downstairs to have a snack and watch PBS Kids. But some mornings I hear him, thundering like a herd of elephants as he runs to the kitchen and back to the TV. So I was asking him to have "soft feet" and not make so much noise when getting his snack. So then he asked me to set his snack out and I of course, trying to foster independence, told him that he knows where we keep them, he could get it himself.
Then he says, "But Mom, the noise from my feet is when I have to run into the kitchen to get my snack. That is why we are having this problem!"
Point taken. He wins that round.
BTW, I realize I have hardly blogged lately. I will soon change this. But not tonight. :)
