Today, Tristan decided to be a pirate.

I secretly envied the richness of his imaginary life. He chose a new character to act out every day.

I encouraged it, as it inculcated the habit of reading. Videos give a different lens, so I just want him to read and enact it out. I enjoyed the peeks into his mind and imagination.

It was all going fine, till he happened to see some videos at a friend’s place.

“Mom, I look so different … just not like the character. What do I do to look normal?”

A new battle emerges for me.
