The other day I went to pick up my 3 year old son (Jake) from his pre-school. When I arrived the kids were still playing outside, but since I was a bit early, I hung out from a distance and was able to watch them all play for a little while. I rarely get to see Jake interact with the other kids at school.
Jake just turned 3 years old…and he is a bit behind the other kids physically. There is nothing wrong with him, but he had some ear issues early on that caused a delay in speech, motor skills, etc…
Everything is Ok with him now, but we have to play catch up with him so he can develop on a normal schedule.
He runs a bit funny…has some minor balance issues…doesn’t throw and kick as well as he should…and is a bit spooked to try new things.
I am not, in the least worried about him…Not-At-All. He will catch up and he will be better than normal.
But, it’s going to be one piece at a time.
