I'd like to think my kid is well liked by his peers. But of course all parents want that for their kids. Nobody wants their kid to be bullied or left out. If he's anything like his mother he will probably take control of any group he gets involved in and start organizing (read: dictating) things. But he may not be at all like me. Which is why we need the tiny camera.
We got an invite in our cubbie for a classmate's birthday party Saturday. I think we're going to go. I'd be fascinated to see him interact with kids from school and meet some other parents. So far his friends have only been the kids of the mommy & me moms I've known for two years, or the other dance people's kids who he doesn't see that often. The thought of him having friends outside of me is utterly bizarre but kind of cool.
It's a lot like listening to him play in his room after I put him to bed - it cracks me up hearing him sing little songs and bang his toys around. Despite his recent loquaciousness, I still don't, nor may I ever, have any idea what goes on in his little toddler interior life. It's a total mystery to me.
