Too hard

Any of his family or friends could have told Claire this was how it would be. Thomas had always been an enthusiastic boy for new things. He wanted to try everything. Unicycling, Peruvian food, studying Mandarin, tap dance, having a baby. He tried them all. And then the moment they turned out to be too hard or not what he expected, he dropped them. He liked new things, just not working for them. He got overwhelmed and ran away. Art was the only thing that had stuck, and he wasn't terribly good at that. If only someone had warned her.
