Definition of Type A Personality: An individual who is as ambitious, aggressive, business-like, controlling, highly competitive, impatient, preoccupied with his or her status, time conscious, and tightly wound.
As exercise class wound up on Monday another mom commented that Alex is definitely a type A personality. And well I totally had to agree.
You see, Alex loves going to exercise class with me. The class is at church and the kids run around and play in the gym around us. Alex never plays by herself. In fact, she is usually leading a line of kids around the gym.
"Follow me- I have to be in front" she will bark.
"Now, everyone do this." she says while spinning in circles
"And now dance"
Five or six kids follow behind complying to her every command.
Occasionally another kid will try and cut to the front.
"No, no. Don't you remember I am the leader" she will calmly and matter of factually state.
At which point the would be cutter will take their place in line.
Occasionally I will see someone else at the front of the line. But on the way home she let me know all about this. "I am always supposed to be the leader, but they were not wanting to play, so I let them have a turn so they would keep doing what I say."
"Now let's play monster everyone. The boys are the monsters, run girls!" to which all the girls will run with her with the boys chasing behind.
"Bam- I got you with my lazer!"
She has also told me about one of the boys that always tries to be mean. "He was trying to get my friend to do something mean to me; but I told him- she is my best friend she will not do that."
And this isn't a one time thing- every single time we go things just like this happen. Alex leads and the kids happily follow along. Class always ending with Alex telling me who her newest friend is and asking if they can come over to our house to play.
Type A personality: ambitious, aggressive, business-like, controlling, highly competitiveYep- I'd say so.
The girl baffles me. So unlike my shy childhood self. But controlling and all- I'm still proud of her.... I think.What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?
