He Doesn't Need Me Anymore

Yesterday we watched the playoffs and Jackson has been on a football kick ever since. He's been running around the house carrying the ball from room to room and screaming, and I'm expected to clap every few minutes. So we went outside and played catch together. After a few minutes, I was apparently being too boring, so he showed me where I needed to sit and then proceeded to play catch with himself, as shown in the video below. Every time I tried to get up and play with him, he grabbed my hand, escorted me back to my seat, and gestured for me to sit down. I always knew at some point I would become a mere spectator in his life, but I didn't think it would be this soon.

How sad that you now have bystander status after 18 months. Thought that was supposed to happen around 18 years. Also, I love how he starts chasing the ball before he's totally let go of it. :)

How cute - and a little sad at the same time!
