>History repeats itself. The saying threatens to ring true in my son’s life. When I became a mom my plan was that Cj would not be an only child like me. But circumstances have a way of twirling people. My son repeats what I was while growing up.
The difference between Cj and I as only children is the restriction on friends I was allowed to have time out with. But I’m sure my mother had her reasons. In this lifestyle I and Cj are thrust in, my wish is that Cj would have more human friends and maybe less of feathery friends.
I jump at every chance for Cj to mingle with friends. Although not an everyday occurence for him, it does happen, and I am thankful. We went to the province one weekend where Cj got to hang out with a friend’s son. Cj is a shy bunny around anyone new, but this is one of those rare moments where he quickly warmed up to a friend’s friend. It may sound cliche but I was really happy to see him with people other than myself.
And that’s about it. The rest of the time Cj goes out with his only best friend – me 🙂
As my kid’s self-appointed best friend I’m forever finding ways to make his times out with me memorable. Ok I’m not sure if this is exactly ‘out.’ The photo shows it’s out but the main ingredient of the time out was spent in the depths of the sea, lol… We are about to board a submarine as my 5th birthday gift for him.
A little note to fellow moms: I got a bit confused as to whose friends are we referring to this week. I included my friends in this post.
