Where'd my hellion go?

I'm having one of those weeks - you know - "Who are you and what did you do with my child?"
Daniel, as he approaches five, has turned into this sweet, charming young man who says "yes sir" and "no ma'am," who asks before he takes things (like bubble gum or a banana off the counter), who obeys me and the house rules - for the most part - and who is generally self-sufficient in matters of personal hygine.
Now, I still expect battles over picking up "all" the toys and putting them away, and he woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning - cranky and whiny. But then, I have those struggles myself. But I am delighted with this new small person who shares my home - and a little bit proud. "Look what I did!"
