.. .max. ..

This kid cracks me up, we spend almost every minute together (right now he is at the indoor play park with Dom and Leone, I almost didn't know what to do with myself). Every morning we walk Ollie to school, Max is included every morning just like a kindergartner, he reads with the kids, sits down with them in circle time and participates in the morning calender. Then we leave and it is just me and him for a couple of hours. My mom offered to pay for pre-school for him, but I must say I am kind of hesitant. Is that selfish of me to keep him home one more year, I mean he has to go to pre-school another full year before he makes it to kindergarten. I just kind of want to keep him all to myself, well most of the time I do.

At home we read, just me and him, I think he loves the one on one time. We snuggle, we laugh, we clean, and we goof off.

I see him learning things, making patterns, grouping colors, counting, adding, and even multiplying, all on his own.

I see him playing make believe by himself, telling himself stories, occupying his time alone, his time to play with any toy he wants and he doesn't have to share. He doesn't have to share me, and I don't have to share my time either. I love it, and I don't know if I will be giving that up.

This kid cracks me up, and I love him.
