Wow! It's 2009

It just keeps rushing by. How did we arrive at 2009? Along with the New Year, I'm seeing big changes in Levi. He has had a sudden rush into "big kid-ness." Suddenly, he is "too old" for his hat and gloves with the Batman symbol on them, has announced he wants "plain" pajamas--no more of those juvenile designs on them, and has taken a sudden step away from his stuffed animals. Adam was snuggling with Levi in bed the other night after their reading time. Adam told me that finally Levi kicked him out so he could turn his light back on and read!

Levi is approaching what Waldorf calls the nine-year change, a time that the child first truly experiences himself as separate from the world, giving new rise to fears, criticism of adults, and loneliness. He hasn't' quite started rolling his eyes yet or saying directly that we (his parents) are stupid but we're getting close. I'm hearing "Moooooommmm" a lot more than I used to!

Oh, goodbye little boy!
