Birthday and ….
This morning I asked Zander what kind of part he wanted for his birthday. For once I want to order the cake early enough. With his birthday so early in the year, I normally wait until the last minute.
All of a sudden he got upset and wouldn’t talk to any of us. He wouldn’t tell me what’s wrong. I decided to just ignore it.
Later he came to me and asked me to go lie with him. That’s when he said he didn’t want a party at all. He didn’t want anybody at his party. I still couldn’t understand why.
Then it dawned on me….
We have told him many times that it will be Christmas, then his birthday and then he will go to “big school”. This is why he doesn’t want a birthday. He doesn’t want to go to school. He is not ready. Well he is but he doesn’t feel ready.
Poor boy 😦
