I want to be famous…

Sorry to be reflecting again on this Father’s Day.

This is what motivates people both in life and in death.

To be recognized in life by their peers.

Moi, moi, moi…

Perfectly normal to do so unless you use mean ways to do it.

It must have happen in your lifetime. Like when you were two years-old. I never knew about the “terrible two” although I turned 65 in December and that I am now a proud grandfather of two wonderful grandchildren with two more in the very near future.

Child development stages describe theoretical milestones of child development, some of which asserted as nativist theories.

This article is based on a general model based on the most widely accepted developmental stages. However, it is important to understand that there is wide variation in terms of what is considered “normal,” driven by a wide variety of genetic, cognitive, physical, family, cultural, nutritional, educational, and environmental factors. Many children will reach some or most of these milestones at different times from the norm. It is important to keep in mind that even a tiny baby is a person. Holistic development sees the child in the round, as a whole person – physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, morally, culturally and spiritually. Learning about child development involves studying patterns of growth and development, from which guidelines for ‘normal’ development are drawn up. Developmental norms are sometimes called milestones- they describe the recognised pattern of development that children are expected to follow. Each child will develop in a unique way; however, using norms helps in understanding these general patterns of development while recognising the wide variation between individuals. This page talks mostly about the development of the English language during the language sections. (Wikipedia)

We always learn new things in life whether we are two or sixty-five. I am just glad I have learned about the terrible two.

So have I been writing that much on this blog to be famous? A famous amateur genealogist? A famous blogger? A famous grandfather? I am still pondering about it.

I know you should also.

So what about having a Grandfather’s Day some of these days?

  1. I don’t know if they were ever separated, but Canada started a Grandparents Day in 1995 and is celebrated the first Sunday after Labour Day. To get your own day, Pops, you’ll have to submit an official request to the government,(maybe someone already has, but you’ll have to look into that).
