A Day In The Life Of My Son

985 words - 4 pages

The observation of a child is a very wonderful and tiring experience. I chose to observe my son Erick who is a little over a year old. From the moment he woke up in the morning, he was very active. First, he expressed to me that he was hungry and thirsty. I put him in his chair and watched him eat. Using his fork very slowly and carefully he stabbed each piece of scrambled egg and then put the fork into his mouth. Chewing his food, he smiled through every bite. When it was time to drink Erick put his fork down and with both hands, he picked up his sippy cup and drank. The whole time he peered over the top of his cup, watching me watch him. Breakfast was over with as Erick began to wash himself with a rag. He quickly wiped his mouth, then his hair, and continued down to his fingers.Once finished, Erick flipped his body around in his booster seat, so that his stomach was on the seat while his feet were pointing towards the floor. Upon his feet reaching the floor, Erick was off and running. Immediately heading for the playroom, he got out some trucks to play with. Lying down on the floor, he pushed the trucks around the room for several minutes. He soon tired of the trucks and moved onto his Fisher Price "little people" toys, which consists of an entire city to include an airport.With his amusement fading, he turned his interest to a big blue tote in the corner of the playroom. In this tote, Erick discovered a wide variety of books that seemed to overwhelm him. Standing up against the container, Erick bent over the side and looked inside. He stayed bent over like this for a few minutes and I realized that he was trying to decide what book to get out first. Reaching into the container, Erick pulled out a book about animals that had fuzzy material you could feel while learning about the different types of animals. Erick sat down and opened the first page of the book. He looked at each of the pictures and felt the fuzzy material. After feeling the material, he looked at his hands with an unsure look on his face. He continued to look at the animal book, feeling each fuzzy page and then moved onto the next book, which was musical. After pressing a few of the buttons, Erick heard music and began laughing. He tossed the book aside and got to his feet. Still laughing and listening to the music Erick stood in place and bobbed up and down as if he was trying to dance. The music from the book soon stopped and so did Erick's interest in the books.Walking over to the table and chair set, Erick found crayons and paper. Before picking up the...

Just after my prayer I go to bed for sleep. While I am in bed, I spend some time evaluating the events which I have been involved in during the day; the experiences, the things which happened in school and also the people I met in school.
