Dear Mother of That Active Little Boy in Music Class,

You’re most likely too exhausted to have noticed me looking at you while the teacher has been making her way through her “Wheels on the Bus” and “Itsy Bitsy Spider” routine. I’ve been watching you because most of the time I am you. See, my toddler son can be a handful, too. It can be difficult to go to any structured class or setting with sons like ours. They don’t sit when other kids sit, or sing when other kids sing.

On this particular day, I begin to wonder if my own son is getting sick, since he’s sitting calmly in my lap. I don’t even remember the last time he did this. Normally, he’s doing exactly what your little guy is doing: climbing anything he can put his little feet on, grabbing the books in the room, trying to open the door, testing the babyproofing on the outlets, and basically doing anything other than what the other kids are being encouraged to do by the teacher.
