What a fun kid this Ivan is. He’s had a bit of a rough time with Owen going to school. He misses his leadership a bit but mostly wishes he could stay with Owen in that wonderful classroom with all those incredible toys. He protested most of the first week but has come to grips with his situation quickly and now seems very supportive.
This morning while the two of them were eating their oatmeal across the table from one another. Ivan suddenly bursts out with this little encouragement.
“Owen, you going to school. I love you can go to school!”
He tickled me immensely last week when we were killing time at the mall. I turned to see where he was and found him running in slow motion behind me. He had a fearful look on his face and I could tell he was very much into some dramatic and unseen scenario. Noticing my interest he explained… “I running away from monster.” Where he picked up on the slow motion thing, I don’t know.
He’s doing much better with the potty training. He’s getting better at telling me when he needs to go. He stays dry most of the time and seems to have a better attitude about it. Maybe school starting is good in this regard. He isn’t as distracted and feels the need or desire to take care of himself more.
