I took my seven-year-old son roller skating at the local skate rink today. It was his first time. He laced up his skates, got himself in a verticle position, and rolled on to the floor. He did pretty good for his first time.
When he got done, he was all proud of himself. "Mommy, did you see me?"
"Yep. You did a great job."
"I was going super fast. I was the fastest one there."
"Well, I don't know about that," I said.
"And I did a back flip, too!"
"I didn't see any back flips."
"I'm the best roller skater in the family!"
Wow! This little guy's perception of things certainly exhibits a lot of confidence.
All hail to the king, baby.
