today we had gymnastics class and the kids had a good time. sometimes i get down on auggie because i see olive doing things that is at par with or better than him. im like "dude! she is 18 months!" but that is just who he is and who she is. she is physical and i shouldn't impose this standard onto him. still. that boy has little sense of perseverance. the slightest hint that he isn't good at something and he crumbles and won't try it again. here is a fundamental difference between my two kids - augustine won't try anything until all signs point to safe and capable. olive will try anything until she gets hurt. my mom often remarks that this was the same way my two older brothers were too so at least i have a model of what they might be like when they grow up? today at gymnastics they were doing somersaults at the same level and speed. olive hung on and swung from the low bar longer than auggie. anyways i've met two moms there and im finally relaxing my iron grip on social stuff. i engage in everything that i do for the kids and the idea of simply chilling with a person because our children are the same age or are in the same class just isnt something that i gravitate towards. i mean small talk sure, but playdates where the kids are the focus, nah. not me. i have to like people on a foundational level and then oh! you have kids too? awesomer! (yup i said awesomer) but it's been nice talking to these ladies, giving a friendly nod and meaning it. today i sat around for quite a while after class just sitting around with one of the moms getting to know her. God sure had a sense of humor when he gave such an outgoing person as myself a social anxiety disorder, whoah. i have to laugh at myself.
