It's always nice to receive compliments about your children, particularly when it's about your child's behavior. And it's even nicer when it comes from a complete stranger. We are very lucky to have a really well behaved (for the most part) little guy, and we received such a nice compliment about it as we were leaving Cracker Barrel after dinner tonight. We were outside the restaurant, enjoying the lovely wooden rocking chairs, while saying goodbye to Deyga (Grandma) and G-Pop (Grandpa)...all you O'Brien's know how long our "good-bye's" can take, when a very nice older gentleman walked up and complimented Jaden's behavior. He said he had been watching Jaden in the restaurant and thought it was so nice and refreshing to see such a little guy behave so well. He said it reminded him of his own kids when they were young. I thought it was so sweet of him to share that with us. Too often, children's good behavior goes unnoticed, while their bad behavior is more apparrent. Jaden felt so proud, and it definitely made us feel proud of our little guy! Good job Jaden!
