The boy who wants awesome

First posted in Facebook, April 23, 2013 at 6:36 pm:

I was tutoring Matthew on his reading for his tests. As I listen to him read a series of sentences, on every pause, when he reads it correctly, I tell him “Very good!“. And then he said, “Mommy, next time, say awesome.” I admit I was really in a bit of a fog, that I really didn’t understand what he meant. I was about to ask him what he was talking about, but he continued reading, still correctly, and this time with more enthusiasm. And then he paused, looked at me, smiling, waiting. And then I got it… (duh!) And so I told him, “Awesome!” with more enthusiasm this time. And I can tell, he was pleased, as he was nodding when he continued on. Awesome! It got me off my fog!
