We have very shy children.
Hubby is not shy at all. He is very outgoing and social – trust me this man can make friends anywhere.
Growing up I was very shy, but I am not really anymore, every once in a while I feel intimidated, a little afraid of what people will think of me, but usually I have no problem talking to people, joining a large group of people where I know almost no one.
So when we realized not one but both kids were shy, we were a little shocked.
Going to someone’s house party has never been fun. Having my family over for Christmas was not fun for Little Boy who woke up from his afternoon nap to discover a house full of people – and none of them looked like Santa.
So this past weekend Hubby’s company hosted a Surf & Turf Family BBQ. We tried to get our babysitter to stay with the kids, but she was busy, so we reluctantly brought them along.
We were pretty sure it would be an evening where we spent more time with the kids than socializing with the other adults.
It turns out, they must be growing up – we had a fantastic night.
We were beyond proud of them – we did not leave until 9:45 – almost 2 hours past their bedtime – and they were still doing great!
There is hope for us still – the glue that they have been using to attach themselves to our legs jsut might be weakening.
