We were playing with Little Dynamo’s train set last night. Suddenly, I asked him to build a tower out of the blocks. Whenever he was successful, I would say “I am so proud of you”. He would then destroy it and squeal with laughter.
Then he thought of putting the blocks on top of one of his trains. It was more difficult as the little truck would move. Sensing that he could not do it, he allowed me to do it for him. While watching me, he moved back and sat on the sofa. When I finished stacking all the blocks, he squealed, moving towards me with outstretch hands,
“I am so proud of you, Mommy.”
