Thirty Word Thursday: Big Boy

I'm a Big Boy

I’m a Big Boy



Don’t help me

I can do it myself

I’m a big boy, just like my brothers

Keep your hands back

The hardest job for a parent or grandparent

Let him do it himself

  5. Love it! It’s so hard when you want to do it yourself and keep up with the big kids…. and it is so hard to step back and just let them try.

  10. So cute, but these moments are bittersweet and a little heartbreaking when they’re asserting their independence.
