I hope my son grows up to be a perfect gentleman. He seems on the right path but here is how I know he will at least become a perfect man:
1. When I cut off all my hair, the first thing my tiny son said when he saw me was, “You look really pretty, Mommy.”
2. Leaving a building, he stood in front of me struggling with the giant door. When I asked if he needed help he said, “No, I am trying to open the door for you.”
3. I put on a new dress last weekend and he said, “You look really great in that dress, Mommy.”
4. When talking about his day yesterday and what was his favorite part, he put on his sunglasses and said, “Please don’t talk anymore, Mommy.”
A gentleman in many ways and yet …I thought the mere sound of a woman’s voice did not begin to grate on the auditory nerve of males until they were much, much older. How clearly unwise I am.
