It is really fun to watch the difference in the way my daughter and my son react to various situations.
Right from choosing what to wear, to the things they like, to the way they respond to people..they are so different!
My son just pulls out whichever T-shirt is right on top of the pile of clothes in his cupboard, even if it’s for a party or a family function. He says, “This is ok. I’m fine.”
On the other hand, my daughter agonizes over her clothes and accessories.
When my daughter calls a friend or receives a call, they exchange pleasantries, talk about TV shows and then warm-up to discuss the purpose of the call.
My son came up to me yesterday and asked if he could call his friend. I said yes.
As I watched, he called his friend. This is how the call went.
“Hi! I want to share a fact with you about dinosaurs.”
Then he rattled off some statistics about the Argentinosaurus (I think).
“Ok got to go. Bye”, he said and hung up.
The call took 30 seconds.
I asked him, “Was that all?”
“Yes mom”, he said.
