Starting Early

Aidan's latest phase of irritating behavior has been spitting. Today, while he was eating his breakfast, he thought it would be fun to spit his milk all over the floor. I asked him to stop and told him that if he did it again that he would go to time out. He promptly made a face at me and said, "whatever." Matthew, who was behind him as he said this, starting laughing under his breathe. I was dumbfounded. "Excuse me?" I said, and he replied, again, with the same face of defiance, "whatever, Mommy." If this is how he is at 2 years and 5 months old, we are in for trouble when he turns 16! He does however, have his sweet moments. We had a painter come over to give us an estimate on repainting our house, and before he left Aidan ran up to him and said "hug first" and gave him a big hug as he was leaving. It was pretty adorable. Of course, immediately afterwards he ran as fast as could from the living room to the family room and body slammed Emma...he's a handful, alright, that son of mine!

Oh Niki, I feel for you. As much as we love and adore our children they all do things just to get a reaction sometimes. Taylor likes to throw her food on the floor when she doesn't want it. I tell her "NO! If you don't want it that's fine but don't put in on the floor." She looks at me as if she knows what she's doing is naughty and does it anyway. Oh, and she likes to bite me when I am nursing her, just to get a reaction. And she's only 9 months old, so yes I do feel for you! Sometimes I want to laugh too but I have to try to control it because then she will do it even more!

I like your new layout, by the way.

Someday Parker and Aidan will have to meet! They would make a crazy combination! I love the new blog look, by the way!
