WHOSH his hand flung and landed SMACK on my face. It hurt sooo much...
I covered my face with my two hands and pretended to cry. About 5 seconds into pretending, I peeped at him through my fingers. To my surprise he started to pout and was about to start to cry as well. I gave him 2 more seconds and what! A big fat tear rolled down his face and he whimpered.
I took my two hands away and looked at him. He looked back at me. Whimpering stopped. I gave him a grin and then laughed.... He looked at me and then laughed with me.
Over the weekend, I experimented more and found that when I cry, he also cries. And when I am sad, he can feel it and tends to keep rather quiet. But when he sees me laughing he will laugh and laugh with me.
At 7+ my boy understands emotions.
I was feeling a bit down the weather over the weekend....so there were times when I left him to play by himself.
My boy at 7+ is capable of playing by himself. But when he does see me, he will drop everything and start crawling to me.....
And finally now a days, he doesn't really like to lie down when he is not sleepy. So, when he is thirsty, he would rahter sit up and tilt his head back to drink water.
My boy at 7+ wants his own way.
