More Freedom Please

As he gets older I’m  realizing that I’m becoming increasingly over protective. He wants to be able to do things on his own and I immediately say “No!” I’m lucky he’s not a rebellious kid because boy ol’ boy I would have trouble. He knows and understand when I say No it’s because I just want him to be safe. He’s getting older and he wants to be home alone, cook certain foods, and the continues to grow. He’s starting to feel like I don’t trust him. I keep telling him that I trust him I just dont trust the surrounding. Justin looks at me and says ” well you know we live in a good area now, I understand you had to worry about me before because we lived in an area with a lot of shooting but now we don’t” 🙄😳 The come backs with this kid is stumping me more and more. He’s right I did move us so that he can get the education he deserves so that I don’t have to fight the school district to give him what he’s entitled to. I do feel safe where we live. I just would like to protect him as much as I can and as long as I can. He has  freedom it’s just with me right by his side or not to far away.

Some days I wish cruelty didn’t exist. This way differences can be free to just be.

Do Ants Have Souls?

I was sitting in the livingroom Tuesday and Justin came to me and asked, “Do ants have souls?” I wasn’t sure how to answer his question because it was a question I had to take time to think about. Even though it was something I’ve should have given thought to before responding, I immediately said “yes, I guess so.” I did not take my time to think about the question because Justin was starting to repeat the question again and explaining his process of thought. He said “Mom, I was in my room and there were ants by my window and I started to kill them. And as I was killing them I started to think that they could be my family, so I stopped. It also felt like I was killing someone in my family.” I was so perplexed. I really didn’t know how to respond. After thinking for hours I continued the discussion with Justin and told him, “Yes, ants do have souls. Just like people they die and new ones are born.” He responded back by saying “oh that makes sense. Well, I’m not gonna kill them anymore because they’re just like us.” All I could do was smile. He is himself in his own unique way.
