An example of Brendan's love of words.
I open one eye to see a huge smile on his face before we both fall back to sleep.
And a story from Tadhg's teacher.
A new boy joined Tadhg's class yesterday. He is a junior in the mixed Junior/Senior Kindergarten class and doesn't speak any English yet. During the morning Tadhg was very kind to him and at recess he played with him outside. On the way in from recess a teacher told Tadhg he was a very kind and caring and was a good person. Fast forward to story time a little later. The teacher wants some of the kids to take charge of some puppets. She says "hmmm, I think we'll let Tadhg choose first, because he has been a very kind boy today." Tadhg totally milks it, puffs out his chest and chooses, "I think I'll be the wolf, hmm, no maybe I should be the mouse, yep, I'll be the mouse because the mouse is the best and I'M the best boy in this class!" Big cheesy grin.
