Family matters

Colin, in playing an imaginary game called "Woody grows up" (Woody from the film "Toy Story), described the four stages of growing up: "First Woody starts as a baby, then he's a kid, then he's a half-man, then he's a man." Apparently, a "half-man" is when you're not a kid but not yet an adult.


Caleb has really taken to my friend Kathy. Kathy has four children herself, 3 boys aged 6, 9 and 11, and a little girl Caleb's age. She is married to her husband, Dave. Caleb truly thinks of Kathy as a friend. He loves to sit with her and tell her about his life. In describing Kathy's family the other day, Caleb said: "In their family, there are 3 boys, 2 girls, and 1 man." Caleb sees Kathy on his own level rather than a mom or adult.
