We went to one of our playgroup friends birthdays today. We all had a great time. It was at a kids gym and I noticed DS really just did hisa own thing and did not partake in the activitys with the rest of the kids. I mean a few of them he did but for the most part he just ran around and jumped on all the mats and wedges. The few times he did join in he just did not follow directions (kept wanting to go under the parachute for example). Once the kids sat down for cake he joined in more and was talking up a storm with the other kids. Maybe it was just all the activity in the gym.
I just noticed maybe he still struggles with following directions and joining in with the group. At home we do activitys and he has trouble following directions then as well. He used to be more social at playgroup. I stated sending him to MIL's house (she runs in an home daycare) once a week to play and see her and now he is biting at her house (DS and I talked about it)and he just seems less social and there is just something different.
I guess I'm wondering id this is this a normal stage or if maybe it's a new personality trait or something I need to work on? I mean we have always done playgroup with these kids, we play together all the time! Really the only reason I ask is he stars zoo school in September and we plan to do YMCA soccer. He is potty trained, speaks super well and I always felt he was ready. But lately he just can't seem to follow directions for activitys and he just is not getting excited about being around other kids anymore. Zoo school will help that I'm sure right? I mean it should not make me worry about sending him?
