Putting the pieces together

Before the baby was born, Daniel had been concerned about where the baby would sit in the car. He kept asking us regularly until we got the baby seat and showed him that this would be for the baby. At the same time, he was still very territorial about his own car seat: it was his and only his.
However, now that the baby is here, Daniel has been great at understanding that people do different things - and use different products- at different ages.

Putting all of this together, he was very proud to explain to me this morning that when Charlotte is older, she will take his car seat. It was not a question, it was a statement. And there was no jealousy involved, no regret. Daniel had put all the pieces together!
So, he got the concept right. Now let's see how he applies it when his sister starts playing with his old toys and developing more of a personality on her own.
To be continued!
