I was very proud of DS6 yesterday. He was playing with his friend, D, from across the street. D is also 6 and will be starting first grade in Sept. Anyway, D wanted to read the instructions for a game they were trying to play and became frustrated because he can't read well yet. DS said, "Don't worry, D, I'll help you read it." After DS read it, D said, "Reading is so easy for you!" and DS said, "It's easy once you get the hang of it."

This is a big deal for me because in the past we have had trouble with DS bragging and comparing himself to others (out loud...) Could all those talks we've had about the issue finally be sinking in? smile
