Last night I skyped with my family.

My nephew, now 3, managed to sit a little more peacefully in front of the camera.

In the past he would squirm and smash the camera off. His way of saying, Pay attention to me!

I bought him crayons, things to color, picture books to flip through, because mastering solitary activities is a comfort. He still likes to sit an adult down just to do things in their presence, though.

Even using the bathroom.

He intuits that bathrooming is a private activity, ie, he will ask for the door to be closed, but before that, he’ll invite you in first. Just in case.
