Chase is changing. There is no two ways about that, he just is. He's so much more into his friends and his fun. He is much more independant but at the same time unsure about the changes himself. He loves us and wants to be with us, but sometimes friends are more important. He loves his sister and brother but sometimes he just doesn't feel like playing with them.
He's my oldest, so these changes are all foreign to me. I know that this is how it's supposed to be. He's supposed to change, supposed to become a person all his own. And he's doing such a great job at that. He has his own values and morals and doesn't seem to let the other children persuade him too much.
Chase is a wonderful, kind child. He won't hurt people and hates with people are hurting each other. Case in point - 2 of his closest friends at school were fighting. It was a power struggle of some sort and the boys couldn't get along. Chase, always the mediator, tried and tried to get them to make up and be friends again. And eventually, over time, it happened.
I'm so proud of the person that he is becoming. I'm proud that he's kind and considerate yet still holds his own. I couldn't have asked for anything better.
