This little guy turned 5 years old at the end of July. He has been ready for this birthday for over a year now. Over and over and over he would tell me, “Mommy, I am almost 5.” For him, turning 5 was synonymous with going to school. He has been with me since he was born – all day and all night. It does not surprise me one bit that he is so ready. My biggest worry for him and school is his joy being taken away. Right now, he is excited for the experience. He loves to be helpful so I know he will be a great help to his teacher whenever he can.
The best thing is that he loves to learn. He learns very well on his own. We can show him how to do something and he will go off on his own, and be able to replicate it. Through YouTube, he has taught himself colors, counting, the alphabet, and math. He loves to give us math problems to solve. It’s so funny to be tested by a 5 year old. Sometimes I have to try to trip him up to see if he really knows the answer…and he does. The way he learns and the pace that he learns at are things I don’t want to change. So, as I told his big sister, if this school thing starts to feel like it’s not working, there will have to be some changes. I prefer that they are in an environment that is conducive to their type of learning.
Now while Brady loves to learn, he also loves to have fun. Lately that has included him trying to do all of the dances his favorite YouTubers are doing.
For this layout, I wanted it to be as colorful and bright as his personality. Wondering what digital supplies were used for this look? Check out the links below.
