I heard a knock on the gate, just a few minutes ago and David Eriifeoluwa Adigun did something that made me smile right from my heart. By the way, many times, he upsets me and just acts so naughty but he is still such a darling. Let me tell you what he just did now; about 7:30pm, Thursday, January 14th, 2016.
I heard a knock on the gate. I am upstairs, working and my wife is in the kitchen, cooking (please don’t make any comments #coveringface). The generator is on so those downstairs cannot hear if someone knocks. So, I called out to David, who is with his mum, that there was a knock on the gate.
When he told my wife, she called someone else to check the gate but David said “Mummy, daddy said David”, meaning it was his responsibility this time. That was really cool! But that’s not where I am going.
David ran outside and from upstairs I could hear him shout excitedly, “PLEASE, who is there?” And my heart was filled with amazing joy. I am raising a very courteous son! I have taught everyone who cares to hear and listen to me that they NEED to be courteous and just have GOOD MANNERS.
‘Thank You’, ‘Please’ and ‘I am Sorry’, among other courteous words should be NORMAL for us, no matter who we are addressing.
When he returned in, I said “David, thank you” and he said, “you’re welcome.” Now, I am about to combine these three “life-savers” in one sentence.
Thank you very much for reading this and I am very sorry if this post seems like bragging; please know that is not my intent.
I love you!
