He did it !


Woohoo! Remember this?  Well he did it again, and with complete confidence this time. I asked him to walk into the post office alone (he's almost 9) and order two stamps for the two letters I handed him, I told him it is fine for them to keep the letters, I need them both mailed. I handed him a dollar, and off he went. I watched through the glass doors you see in the photo and I can see that he and the cashier are having a conversation. He walks out w/my change and receipt. He got back in the car, smiled because he was proud of himself, and says, "He thought you wanted two stamps to bring home, but I told him to put them on the envelopes." I smiled, he had maintained a conversation with some random person, cleared up confusion, and came away from the task proud of himself for being such a big boy! Go Gage!

You are an absolutely awesome Mom for teaching your kids how to deal with everyday situations. I bet most hearing kids who wouldn't be able to take care of business at the post office at the age of nine. What a great sense of accomplishment!
