Feelin' Safe At Safety Town


My son is 5. He is super shy. So shy that I had to volunteer to teach Sunday School so that he wouldn't cry for a whole hour every Sunday. He is so shy that I don't waste my money on too many extra activities. He cries through them. He can barely tell you his name if you ask.


But today, today was different. I dropped, yes dropped him off at Safety Town. There were no tears. No holding on to me as I walked away. Nothing. I almost didn't know what to do. They didn't even have my cell phone number to call me if he had a fit. I was pretty uneasy for the whole two hours today that he was away.


When I went to pick him up, he was smiling. I really couldn't believe it. At lunch he asked how often he has Safety Town. I told him every day for a week. He yelled out "Yes!" I say "Amen."

Maybe he's growing out of it! And I also would have freaked out!

Watching kids grow up is such an amazing feeling. Proudness mingled with sadness. :o)
