Unlike me he LOVES to read!

I am so proud that my 7 year old loves to read, to be honest when I was his age I did not like books but he voluntarily picks up a book and starts reading. He is currently devouring another books The Diaries of Robins toys - it has a picture of a depressed cow on the front. Just asked him what its about and he told me its about how a cow makes lots of friends - so proud of him!

My 7-year-old granddaughter

She has an incredible sense of humor and makes me laugh. We really have a good time together. Her personality is quite similar to her father's (my son).

My 7 year old son

Adeola is such a loveable and sociable boy by nature. What I love most about him being 7 is his ability to act as a senior brother as he calls himself. Protects and leads his younger sisters. He may not yet know how to ride his bicycle, but he can run and do his exercises very well. He loves his food very well and is very inquisitive. He has very good social skills although he could get carried away with his play . I just love him cos he is the big man in the house now protect even me his mummy. He responses and attacks anyone who attacks me, he is also more attuned to emotions. And notices people's moods- mummy are u sad , angry etc.

better than cable tv

my daughter is so full of life, and is truly a free spirit. As she is our only, and I waited until I was 40 to have her, I was very easy going about her upbringing and chose my battles. She is hysterical, whimsical, so full of life and most importantly so incredible intuitive and empathetic about humans and animals. I feel proud that I am leaving such an amazing person on this earth. She is like Christmas every day!!

my precious gem

One afternoon when I had high feaver and I was sleeping, my 7 year old daughter sat by my side and got my fever down with cold water strips on my forehead and kept checking my fever every 2 min. that made me very proud of her. She is very caring, she sing lullaby to her baby sister, this sight brings tears in my eyes. I just love to see her so much caring and I am proud of my Nayab.

My 7yr old daughter is very intelligent, she tidy up her room and treats her younger brother with love just the way she cares for her dolls. And she has great sense of humour, she is so funny. She is my baby!

my artist

My son loves to draw. No matter where he is, he finds a way to get hold of crayons, markers, construction paper etc. I now have drawings all over my fridge but have a special place where i can put them after i have displayed them for about 2 weeks. I love my Charlie

My 7 Yr old helps unpack groceries and sort them out at home.Its amazing to see him engrossed in organizing the groceries.Also,he scatters his toys all around but at the end of it,he collects everything and his room is spic and span.He's a wonder at stacking,organizing and sorting.
