Leading up to his birthday, Colin got several packages in the mail. He has always gotten really excited whenever a package shows up at our house, but since I told him these ones were for him, he was extra excited.
Unfortunately, one day a package showed up that I knew held an unwrapped present. Although he tried to persuade me to open it, I resisted. I had to wait until after he went to bed so I could open the package and wrap it for his birthday.
Desperate to get into the package, he found his pair of plastic scissors and tried as hard as he could to open it himself. It didn't work, but at least he's learning to be independent!
