Tuesdays With Tyler: A Step Toward Being a Big Boy

I wrote in November that Tyler did not want to let go of any of his toys, always finding new ways to play with them.  He even had a heart for the broken ones!

A couple of days ago, as we near Christmas and another toy explosion, Tyler turned to me and said, “Mommy, I want to throw out my baby toys.  I don’t want to play with my baby toys any more.”  It was a minor Christmas miracle!  I said, “Okay, lets look around and see which toys you want to throw away”, and he picked out about five of them, one of which was pretty large! He even agreed to throw away limbless Spider-Man action figures!

I don’t know where he got that term,”baby toys”.  At school?  Most of me is thrilled that we will have a little more order in our living space, but a small part of me is saddened that Tyler has recognized the distinction and is ready to move on.  Ready to move on before Mama is anyway!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
