On Christmas morning, he was very excited with these things. We have learned over the years that he is not like a "typical" kid when it comes to opening presents. He actually seems downright reluctant to do it. So we start out with the Santa gifts, have some breakfast, and then ease into the rest of the presents. You just cannot be in a hurry.
After opening our presents we went to Grandma's house for Christmas dinner. Ian went into his usual mode, which is watching DVDs on his portable player while the adults did their boring stuff. He walks into Janie's house, sits in the same chair he always sits in, and that's it. It bothers me, but what can I do? Of course, most 5th graders would be glued to a DS or other game system, so I guess it's not that different. But still. He will absolutely NOT open presents or sit with us at the table, no matter how we try to persuade him. So, after dinner and presents, we left and came home.
