A set of parents say their 4-year-old son is inspiring them to set high goals, and then knock them out of the park.
Caleb Green, 4, of Chicago recently told his parents he wanted to read 100 books, all in one day.
“I was like, ‘100 son? That’s a lot of books.’ So first I had the gut reaction to talk him down a little bit, but he was like, ‘No, I want to read 100,'” dad Sylus Green told WLS.
So his parents gathered up a bunch of books and got to work. They streamed the whole challenge on Facebook. Videos show Caleb reading aloud to his dad, all on his own.
Every time Caleb finished ten books, he celebrated with an adorable dance.
When he finished 100 books, his parents celebrated with him, congratulating him on completing his goal.
His parents said they were inspired by their son’s accomplishment.
“I learned to just dream bigger, and I am going to try and set unrealistic goals for myself this coming year,” Sylus Green said. “And I’m going to be inspired by Caleb to not quit on him and just push through it,
Caleb has big plans of his own for the future.
“I want to be a basketball player. When I am 22 I want to be an astronaut, and when I’m 23 I want to be a Ninja Turtle,” Caleb said.
Based on how easily he knocked out his first goal, we’d say he has good odds of accomplishing all his dreams.
