Individuating

Last night C_ performed a self-actualization test (scroll down a bit in the link) on Rhen while I was at work. She reported that Rhen initially touched the mirror and then touched his own nose. He’s gets a C+.

If I had been home I would asked her not to do it, not because I’m hippy mother earth let the child be free–I just think it’s a dangerous seed to plant in a parent’s head. I am mindful of Rhen’s development. No doubt. I watch him like a hawk. Screeee. But there will be plenty of tests for him to take later on in life.

  1. Man. Here I am reading this post and eating sloppy joes. I go back out to the kitchen to get more and C_ has already Tupperwared it. I’m too lazy to get it out of the fridge.

  2. Don’t feel bad, Teddy. I did it too…because I told my mom about it and she’s all “Let’s do it!”
    Elijah was more interested in the stuff on the bathroom counter than his reflection. So…aware of his surroundings is a bad thing? I agree with you. And Angela. It’s all her damn fault. *wink
