jt: as i was taking this picture, kingston was trying to look at his nose and wanted you to try too. the baby was really in to it, but you were not.
i can see that you’re coming in to your own and you want the freedom to be older. you’re seven and you’re trying to figure out how to become more independent in the midst of two younger siblings. you’ve started voicing your annoyance with your little brother; “he’s always around me”, “he follows me everywhere”, “kingston talks too much.” i’m sorry it took me so long to notice. this is all new to me too. i promise to do a better job at giving you more space so that we can navigate our way through.
