MY LITTLER KID swam today for the first time. He's seven, and like his brother, 10, is suspicious of changes in state. The 10 year old has various heightened sensitivities, and often needs help regulating his emotions (but, as I always say, he's terribly bright, and can be charming). The seven year old, I think out of loyalty or insufficient individuation, has tended to only like the things his big brother likes, and as well assumes his prejudices.

But today he swam. Or at least he went underwater in the town pool. I have the picture: his little froggy body!
