“Pull up your sleeve buddy.” Sometimes I wonder if my son thinks his mom and dad are nuts. Like…..are we overly obsessed with the fact that our little guy’s left sleeve needs to be rolled up or pulled up at all times. We often times stop what we’re doing so that we can roll up his sleeve. His left arm is slightly shorter than his right, not to mention the difference in his hand alone, but the length of his arms, makes some shirts fit differently. So….we have to roll up his sleeve. BUT do we just have to?! I’m wondering if we’d be so obsessed with his sleeves if both of his arms were the same length or if both his hands were the same. I mean…..there’s balance to everything. Are we so conscientious about proving that he doesn’t have to hide his hand, that it begins to become too much?! How do we as parents, keep that balance and at the same time teach it to our little buddy? He’s at an age where I can tell when we’re working his last nerve……ok, not literally, but he’s learned to express his emotions and let everyone in his world know how he’s feeling. So, often times, we get sighs and huffing and puffing when we’re reminding him to roll up or pull up his sleeve. Does his sleeve length really matter?
