One more story about Benjamin's PT conference

There were only three chairs around Benjamin's teacher's desk but we needed four, so Benjamin told Zoë she was welcome to grab a chair from a desk and bring it over. She did and we all settled in to listen to Benjamin's teacher's glowing assessment of him thus far.

When it was time to go, without prompting, Benjamin pushed in all the chairs around the table. Then he grabbed the extra chair and cheerfully said, "I'll just put this back from where we borrowed it. Gotta keep our classroom tidy!"

"See?" his teacher beamed. "He's so helpful even outside of school hours!"

And again I just stood there all slack-jawed, thinking of how wonderful it is that it takes a village to raise a child because I am certainly not getting these kinds of results on my own (I know because I've rarely witnessed an occurrence such as this at my house (I'm just happy he's behaving this way somewhere)).
