One over-riding parental ambition of mine is for my children to have experiences that I never had.
And tonight, after his swimming class, Jamie made an announcement.
"I've got a new friend called Amos," he declared.
I've never had a friend called Amos. In fact, I'm yet to actually meet anyone called Amos (although I do know a Granville).
A proud moment then and another tick in the box for my boy, who continues to outpace me.
