Privacy Please!

We’ve hit a new milestone in Casa Whitworth, one I didn’t think much about until it arrived. Simon has started to desire privacy. I learned this two weeks ago when he got agitated about changing out of his pajamas with Agotich in the room. At first, I thought he was just stalling for time. Then I realized that he seemed more embarrassed than defiant.

“Do you want to go upstairs to change?” I asked.

“Oh yes,” he answered with no small amount of relief in is voice.

So began a new era. In the past two weeks Simon has been similarly insistent that he not change clothes or go to the bathroom if Agotich is in viewing distance. And it has nothing to do with his regard for Agotich, I am sure, as his love for her and her baby sister seems stronger than ever right now.

It will be interesting to see when he extends this desire for privacy to me and Matt. We can only hope that his emotional growth will wait for his fine motor skills to catch up because frankly, he’s not ready to handle all naked activities on his own yet!

    Naked activities.
    Remembering the time my friend’s 2 year old daughter, Amy, was on the toilet and called out, “Will somebody wipe me off!?”
    Since all the other moms were busy and since Amy had left the door wide open, I went in to help her out.
    As I was wiping her messy bum, she looked up at me and said, “What was your name again?”
