Normally, when it’s nice and sunny, Cameron wants to stay inside and play video games or something else with his friends.
One day this summer, it was raining out, and he said how happy he was because he didn’t want us to tell him that it was nice weather and he should go outside and play.
Today it was in the single digits and windy.
Today Cameron wanted to go OUTSIDE to “play” (wrestle) with his friends.
After about 10 minutes, Sara looked out the window and saw that Cameron had taken off his winter jacket and was running around in his SHORT SLEEVE shirt! I quickly called him in and he told me he HAD to take off his coat because the zipper was broken (unzipping from the bottom), and it kept bothering his neck. Then he tried to run back out….dropping his coat on the floor, as if his explanation was logical enough and I’d actually let him back out like that.
Did I mention it was in the single digits today?
The outside playing didn’t last too long because after two boys left to go to Tae Kwon Doe, the “throwing each other on the ground” wrestling turned into “punching each other in the face" wrestlin,g and one boy went home crying while Cameron tried to explain to me that in adult wrestling that’s what you do, punch and kick. (How he knows this, I don't know, because he doesn't even watch wrestling...at least not at home).
Six year old boys...I REALLY don’t get them.
