Something I love about Oliver is that he is so shy and doesn’t like being sought after by people. Some may say he’s playing hard to get,
being rude, etc. but I think of it as him just being particular about the company he keeps! That’s why this year for his birthday I had his close friends come over to eat pizza and eat cookies while watching Cars on a projector outside. As much as it might have hurt some people’s feelings that they weren’t invited over, I know that the more people over equals more people vying for his attention which is not what he wants on his birthday. Every year I was forced to spend my birthday (aka Christmas Eve) doing something I didn’t really want to do and would feel so awful doing that to Ollie. All I know is that Oliver had so much fun and that’s what’s important. My big two year old!
