I’m Four Today!

Presentation1I began my big bloggy adventure four years ago today! And gosh ‘n’ golly how I’ve grown! According to child development experts, a typical four year old exhibits the following characteristics:

1. Finding new ways of expressing himself (always).

2. Is sometimes demanding (I know, I know), but is gradually learning to control his temper (getting there).

3. May feel anxious about big new experiences like starting school (or directing his second feature film)!

4. Is deepening in his friendships with others (that includes you!), but may also have imaginary friends (it’s OK, Bobo and Goopie the Whatever-He-Is say I can play with you too).

5. Is increasingly curious about his body. Um, moving on…

6. Knows a lot more words than he used to (I’m a particularly capacious lexicographer–he said after carefully checking the meanings of those words).

7. Is learning to express himself better every day, and particularly loves telling stories. Aha! That confirms it. I’m definitely four!

Thanks for joining me in my big bloggy adventure, dear friends!

  1. Well, Happy Birthday to a big boy – here’s your ballon!!!

    You weren’t expecting us to sing were you? Nobody should be forced to listen to me sing. I’d do it if you’d like, but …

    Congratulations! You have almost reached the long-pants age. Truly, a joy to read your blog. And I am still waiting for your film to hit my region…. Wow. Can all of us brag (humbly of course) that we know you?

  9. Well, Happy fourth birthday, Mitch! You express yourself very well, and though we’ve never met personally, I feel as if I’ve known you for years. (And you’re easier to understand than my grandson, who will be four next month. πŸ˜‰)

  28. Mitch, it is so nice to see how you have grown. You make me look forward to when I am 4. What would we do without our Child Psychologists? Great read.

    You are among my top 10 favorite bloggers. Interestingly all 10 blogs (and mine) all made . Their debuts within a month of one another. I wonder what that means… At any rate, three cheers for Mitch and The Power of Story. And another cheer just for good measure! πŸ“―
