One on one he is a complete chatterbox and will regale you with the day's derring do's and his view of life, the universe and everthing. He can be really caring and loving and helpful. He enjoys doing guided meditation with Alan and collecting good Karma. He is teaching himself to read and write, since Kindergarten doesn't teach them this stuff yet. We try and find ways to physically wear him out!
He changed Kindergarten just after Christmas - from the private one to the local school based one. So Markus and he are together in the afternoons. We still helping him to settled down. We all need to work on helping him control his anger, which flares up under stress.
Other changes? Boys now have bunk beds and their own space in the bedroom.
Big goal for Patrick? to finally learn to ride his bike. He has never quite got it. Markus learnt at 5, and was riding on his own bike with me to Kindergarten at 5 and a half. Just today Patrick expressed the wish to finally ride on his own, so that we could "ride all together to that farm place to eat" (aka Fork and Bottle!)
Do you still remember when?
I remember that!
