The boy is pretty good natured but, man, sometimes he can crank up the cranky. It’s one of those things that makes me feel powerless. He’s upset and I can’t seem to make it better for him.
It also makes me worry about the future and how powerless I’m going to feel when the outside world becomes more of a factor in his life…and I really don’t have any power over that place.
The trick is to enjoy the present. Right now, at this moment while I type, the boy is sitting in his “activity saucer,” activity-ing away, squealing with the joy of discovering things over and over again.
