Sensitive and Not so Sensitive

This week at swimming lessons I told Isaak, "I'm going to take Mica in to wash his hair, while you are in lessons. I'll be back out way before you get done with your lessons." I've done this a handful of times.

When the time came Mica and I went to go wash his hair. I came back out and Isaak's substitute coach said, "I didn't know what was wrong with him. He started freaking out because you left the room."

I said, "Isaak chill out Mommy is still here. You are ok. I would not leave you. You knew where I went, I told you sweetheart."

One of the parents behind me on the bleachers said, "He really freaked out."

I said, "I don't know why. I told him where we were going and that we'd be right back. He's our sensitive one. Mica the older one wasn't sensitive enough. They are completely opposite on that regard."

Mica looked up at the parent I was talking to and said, "Ya I wasn't sensitive. Most of the time I just don't pay attention. I'm in my own world." I chuckled.

Isaak's going through a stranger anxiety type thing right now. Has anyone else gone through something like that with their preschooler? Mica must have skipped this phase.

He must have forgot or maybe wasn't really listening when you told him you were leaving the room
