Axel did not like our discussion before he went to sleep. He is socially so different from Brevitt and is quite content hanging with his one best friend and his family. I tried to teach him how to be sympathetic and friendlier to the other children who look up to him and ask for playdates with him daily. He started crying telling me that I couldn’t force him to play with people he didn’t want to. Frustrated and exhausted I didn’t have the energy to play this one out. He is not easy to get back on track once he gets upset.
The next morning he told me about his dream: The two of us were eating lots of chocolate together and I was pregnant with a cake in my stomach. Axel told me that the cake was getting sick from all of the chocolate and something was wrong. The cake baby swooshed out and had an ear for a nose.
