“A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2013.”
I picked this photo for this week because it shows a few new changes that we have been noticing in Cooper lately. Number 1 – He now notices and sometimes enjoys playing with other kids. Yay! Number 2 – He more aggressively refuses not to do what he doesn’t want to do. In this photo for instance, he is not wearing shoes because he refused to wear them (the typical kicking and screaming refusal.) Because he is not wearing shoes he cannot chase after Rowan (who is having fun teasing him by running out of his reach). And that natural consequence, My Dear Son, is what happens when you don’t take Mom & Dad’s instructions to heart. After all, we’re pretty much shoe-wearing experts.
