Neighborhood welcoming committee

4 May

My (absolutely adorable) 6 year old son loves playing outside. He loves riding his scooter up and down the sidewalk on our block. 

He’s super friendly. I think he knows more of our neighbors than I do. He has a big, genuine smile for everyone that walks by and a big kiss for every dog that comes by. 

The other day he and Beatrice hugged our mailman and Lucien told him how much he appreciated getting the mail. The mailman gave him & Bea two rubber band each.

Flash forward about a half hour, some random mean looking teen comes walking by and Lucien ran over and said “here” and put one of the rubber bands on the kid’s wrist. I wasn’t sure what the teen was going to do, but he just smiled and said thanks, then Lucien said “if you don’t like the color, you can paint it!” The teen didn’t laugh at him and just told him it was a great idea. 

Then today while we were in the garden, Lucien made sure to talk to each and every person who walked by our house about our garden. He also had a conversation about dog birthday parties (??) with one of our elderly neighbors. 

He’s totally a one child neighborhood welcoming committee. He is the complete opposite of me. I think we really hit the jackpot with him (and Bea).
