Even though I'm sure he didn't understand why we got to make special treats in his honor tonight, it was so fun for me to reward him for being not only well-behaved (that's an expectation), but for being well-behaved for what I considered to be a long time, in a rather boring environment (that's above and beyond my expectations)! I was reminded again that while this age does have its challenges, the rewards get better and better, too. I was so proud of my little man. Sorry for the parental bragging. It just made my heart happy!
