On hard work and pride: A picture story


Sunday~May 17, 2009


He tried...



and he tried...



Then "Lil' BooGoo" tried to help, but
it's hard to button a moving target...



So BooGoo hung on the chair and waited...


while "Bwuddah" tried and tried...



UNTIL...




He got it!


(and felt the need to pose)



The End.

Oh, what a lovely little memory recorded for posterity! Those two are just too cute! I love how Asher tried to help. My kids are all so far apart, they never really have had a chance to be "buds".

The Tongginator still cannot button or unbutton. Their fine motor skills are stellar! (especially for boys)

Deb said...

ah, such perseverance and patience... some days it really can take an entire morning to button a shirt.

What a treasure! I wish we had had blogs when I was parenting small kids. This is priceless, and I'm glad you'll always have it to remember.

Amazing! I have no idea if Oliver could do this... Aside from the fact that I have to fight to put on clothes, let alone dress himself, he refuses to wear shirts that involve buttons.

jen@odbt said...

That's pretty good. I wonder if my 8 y.o. can button up a shirt...he lives in tee shirts. Love that their best buds.

LexiconLuvr said...

That is just precious! Hooray that he got it. I love that you have this all down on camera. And all your pictures turned out so nice! What kind of camera do you have?

Annette Lyon said...

Quite the accomplishment for the little guy--you could tell he tried SO hard.

heidi said...

Hooray for him!!!!! Good job!

Tooj said...

Learning to button is a very prideful event. :)

Jen said...

Good perseverance Mr. Miles!

Mylestones said...

Aww, so precious! I love that little "bwuddah" tried to help!

Good for him! I'm glad he finally got it!

Dedication. Determination. Impressive.

Thank you!!

Kazzy said...

Very cute story board there! I need to take more pictures!

Melanie J said...

Ha, ha! I like this story WAY better than the one about that stupid blue choo choo.

Cynthia said...

Yeah! Perserverence at it's best (and spelling at its worst!)

Jamie said...

So precious!

Lara said...

Pretty cool that you thought to get pictures of this. Incredibly cool that he did it! Buttoning is hard stuff! And I love his GQ pose.

minnesotamom said...

Some days I can barely button myself. Good job, Myles! You are one talented little dude (not to mention cute and hilarious)!

Jillene said...

I love picture stories--especially when the pictures are so cute!!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

awesome - buttons are a hard one to tackle

Keyona said...

Yeay Miles! You rock!

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

So adorably, ridiculously cute. The pose he struck KILLS me!

Becky said...

The pose is classic. And totally deserved. Those buttons are tricky!

Angie said...

Delightful! :) I LOVE that last pic.

Em said...

Oh how I love when they get all proud!! He looks so handsome.

It's something I have to continuously work on, for me. Allowing them to do it themselves, even though we are usually in a hurry.

I know one day when my Oldest is 16 and still cannot tie his shoes, I will only be able to blame myself! E

(I'm so getting that book that you talked about at the MWOB - I swear that stuff happened!! And sadly, so much more.)

mama-face said...

Pitch perfect post. loved it.

Debbie said...

That last photo says it all! What a character. Love that kid. He needs to meet his "Aunt Debbie" in person:)

jubilee said...

Success! Will you be taking pictures when he learns to tie his shoes? LOL

Eowyn said...

Love it!

Kimberly said...

That last pose is just killer. He will break hearts some day, that one.

Abra said...

Love the last pose it's like Hugh Grant meets Michael C. Hall...
