I is for...Independent

Independent toddler

Little Dude is well over two and a half, and he's really starting to assert his independence. Like when he wants to climb the stairs on his own (with his bird puppet, in this photo). He refuses to hold hands and it takes a lot of convincing to hold his hand or pick him up when we cross the street. When we go to the park, he climbs everywhere on his own, like the big kids he sees. This independence also means that he's proud to use his the potty himself, eat without assistance, wear his sandals, and whatever he can manage. I'm proud of him too, and not exactly excited at the thought that he'll start school within a year. But that's what children do, don't they? Grow up!
