Year 2, Day 331

This morning as we were getting ready to leave the house, Miles said a word I haven’t heard him say before.

“Are you ready to go to school?” I asked.

“Fen,” he replied.

“Fen?” I repeated.




I still couldn’t quite understand what he was saying, but fortunately Jaclyn intervened.

“He’s talking about his friends.”

Up to this point, I hadn’t really heard Miles put the concept of “friends” into words. He sees contemporaries like Lexi and Daya at daycare regularly, but I didn’t know if he was defining these connections as actual “friendship” yet.

“You want to go see your friends?” I asked.

A nod and a clicking of the tongue was his answer. I’m glad Miles is learning about friendship, and if it makes getting out of the house in the morning a little easier, all the better.
