On the bathroom wall

9.18.2012

Russ and I are both extroverts. Not that we're equally outgoing, because on an extrovert scale of 1-10 I'd probably be a 5 while Russ would be somewhere off the charts in the 15 or so range, but we're both outgoing none the less. Our oldest child is also an enthusiastic extrovert and our youngest is well on his way to being a mini-Russ, outgoing to the extreme. 

Our middle child though. INTROVERT. And this translates to opposite a lot of the time. In the way we think, act, feel, and process things. 

We love him so so much. We are so thankful for his personality and differences from us. We are glad he is the way he is. But we don't always relate. Or understand. Or deal with his introvertedness very well. And this can be equally frustrating for him and for us. 

So I was struck when I saw this on Pinterest. Struck because it is sooooo Cooper. I think it's helpful. 
And that's why it's now taped to our bathroom wall. A good reminder for us extroverted thinkers! 

And in case you want to know how to care for an extrovert, here you go!
 Both prints were designed HERE.

  1. Love this list. And I love Cooper! Thank goodness for introverts; who settle us extroverts down a times. :)

  2. I love this! Such a great list and so great that you appreciate the fact that your son is "different" than the rest of you! Funny how God works and gives us children either exactly like us or completely different. Helps us grow!

  3. Great list! Number 6 on the extrovert list made me wonder if only extroverts were considered busy people. I know, I know, weird thought!
