Underpants Modelling

Persistent shouting bellowed down the stairs. As Nana and I glanced at each other we shot out of our seats to check on Diego. Here we were greeted with a sight that will likely haunt us forever – plus the fact that we didn’t snap a picture for his girlfriend on his 18th. There Diego stood, almost naked, at the top of the stairs, grinning from ear to ear. “Look at my big boy underpants!”

I mean, what are you supposed to reply to that? Oh yes, fantastic underpants you have Diego…

This dramatic modelling is all because he is absolutely thrilled with his recent switch from underpants to ‘big boy’s’ boxer shorts. I mean, if I’d realised how much he was going to like them I’d have wrapped up boxer shorts in bulk for his birthday instead of expensive fire trucks and irritating battery powered nuisances.

Before I had a child I always hoped that I would be able to encourage confidence in some way. I wanted him to have all the confidence that I have never had. I certainly went about this task in the wrong way though. Diego does have confidence, but he has too much. In fact, he has that much that when I tell him how gorgeous he looks, he replies (without hesitation), ‘I KNOW.’ Yet he is also the first to point it out when a new spot graces my face.
My son is absolutely beautiful; I may be biased but he really is. He’s also funny, honest, and kind. One thing he is not, however, is modest, and there isn’t a guide to teaching modesty. So now I have a new task, the next step of our journey. It just goes to show we are all individual, personality comes from within.
