Brave things he did this weekend
Today was H’s very last day before starting Kindergarten tomorrow. He is the most cautious child I can imagine, and a lot of things scare him. I really don’t know why this is. It just is. Here are some things he did this weekend that stretched him:
-Rode his bike, which he has flatly refused to do for many months. Brad made him. There were tears. We’ve found that every once in a while this approach is necessary. H was happy and proud afterward.
-Took a shower instead of a bath, which led him to –
-Dunk his head underwater at the swimming pool.
He also read a lot of new words this weekend and practiced knitting (he is getting much better at that, but he still recites a little rhyme with each and every stitch. Very cute.)
In addition, he also acted like a total pill many, many, many times over the past few days. I guess he’s entering a willful phase or something. Bleah. I have a feeling deep down that he is needing more challenges, and meeting them will help him feel happier and more affable too.
I think he is ready for Kindergarten and I hope he learns to do a lot more things that are a little scary right now.
