Here's the story of NCH ("Big N") -
Newborn: mama couldn't put him down.
Age one: he screamed through MOPS, but stopped crying as soon as mama held him.
Age two: the nursery workers at church had to come get us, he cried so much!
Age three: he cried when I dropped him off to preschool two mornings a week.
Age four: he cried at VBS when I wasn't the first mom there at pickup time.
Age five: tentatively started kindergarten.
Age six: eagerly invited us to see his Morning Program at school.
Age seven: he was "ok" with us being at school events.
Age eight: this morning, I went to see his Morning Program...when I went to say hello to him afterwards, he turned beet red and turned around, rolling his eyes as he walked away with his friends!!!
Now it's mama's turn to cry! :(
