My DS is 3.5 years old and is extremely introverted. He was always slow to warm up when he was a baby and I was totally fine with that and very responsive to that. Now that he is getting old enough to join activities that he says he wants to do, then we show up and he doesn't want to do them, I feel myself crawling in my skin, wanting to cry, 'cause I don't understand why he doesn't just join in the fun when he was super excited about it on the way there. I want to cry'cause I feel so sad to watch him watching the other kids with his hands in his pockets and knowing full well he is capable of doing what the other kids are doing.
