Takes after his mum

I went to pick my son up from preschool this morning. As he is one of the younger children he is in a little antiroom rather than the main hall for collection. Usually we go to the doors, one of the teachers calls out his name and out running like a mad thing comes my son all excited and uaually needing a wee LOL.
Today however the teacher wasn't on the door, as she was talking to another mum, so in I went and my son was sat on the mat with the other teacher. I crouched down, held my arms out and said hello to my little man.....but he didn't move. I went over to him and did it again but yet again he didn't move. He just sat there fiddling with his joggers telling me about his birthday card, but not getting up. I looked at the teacher who was in the room and she looked at me. I then asked my son why he wasn't getting up. Full of logic he said "lady hasn't called my name out". So dutifully off I went to find the other teacher to call his name out so we could go home.
Should I worry that my son is turning out to be a little bit like me, having to have thing right and organised? Actually I think he may be more like his dad who always follows the rules. Then again maybe he is a mix of both.
On a jewellery note, I made four, yes four pairs of earrings today and two necklaces for the Beady Pool Treasure Chest. I will try to get them photographed and online later this week.

that is so sweet! he's cottoned on to the hierarchy, teachers are in charge at school, you're just second in charge!

That's true, and better than disappearing out the door...which they've drummed into the children.

He sounds a great little boy. :)

I think they behave and follow the rules at school and save all of the challenging bits for Mummy abd Daddy at home:) What a sweetie
