The polar opposite.
(James' folder stays at school - so I didn't get to take an actual picture of the message inside.) Basically, it was this:

Where oh where did my sweet little boy go. Oh, that's right - we've entered the stage of the terrible threes - which I've come to fully appreciate are the new twos....
