The toddler did not want to play along yesterday at the gymnastics class.
She is not sick, and she feels fine. But for some reason she wants to do her own thing.
She wants to look out of the window rather than take part in any of the exercises.
She does not want to walk in a straight line on the rope. She wants to pick it up.
She does not want to jump on the balls, but she wants to carry it around like handbags.
She does not want to move the lint up and down, or in circles. She wants to take it off the stick. Or wraps it around her arm.
But she enjoyed being moved from side to side on a big ball.
Some days are just one of those days. The toddler is allowed her “Being Otherwise” days!
Why not? We all need "Being Otherwise" days some days, don't we?
