AJ had grown fast, becoming very alert and quick witted. He also had some few tricks under his sleeves. More often, he is very outspoken and full of humor. The only concern we have as parents is that, he’s way, too comfortable to say whatever comes to his mind in front of the people, whether good or something not pleasing to the ears. Somehow, I remind him, but often times he would easily forget and will just say… I’m sorry! And he’s fast in saying those magic words and at times, he’s not mindful of the hurt he may give.
He is also becoming very daring and will take risks to experience or try anything new that takes his fancy. He would rather associate himself with those older than him, than with his age group. In fact, we observe that he can discuss animatedly and would even make them laugh with some of his crazy antics. He would try things such as riding outside or on top of the jeepney rather than inside. He would dive and swim on a six(6) feet deep pool, though he is not that a strong swimmer yet. Be the first to try zip-lining when those older than him cowers with some inhibitions and fears.
I guess, he really is a daring boy, and really enjoying it. It gives him an edge over his friends, knowing that he can face his fears without flinching. My little dare devil still have a long way to go…just now, i heard them planning to try wall climbing and rappelling. Perhaps, that will be another great story that i can share.
