Ethan has been difficult the past 2 weeks. Not in the "I'm such a horrible wretch I am going to ruin your life sense",although, it feels like it. More of "I'm going to see just how far I can backtalk and be disrespectful" sense. It started before vacation, vacation did not help, and now adjusting to being back home...CALGON TAKE ME AWAY! Obviously my current tactics are not working, I think it is time for Paul and I to regroup, and take new action. So Monday during quiet time (no more naps, story for another day), I was having my usual trouble with keeping him "quiet." He comes out of his room for the 3rd time, about an hour into, and told me to look at him.
ARE YOU SERIOUS? What is it with boys and putting on every single pair of underwear they own, twelve to be exact. No lie. If you remember, this happened before. Reference: "Layers" in May archive.
So the last time in between the last few layers were his madi gras beads. This time...a squishy lizard.
I am telling you all this, because I am wondering how I am supposed to keep it together with my stone cold face when he comes out of his room like that. Well, I managed AND took the pictures. Oh alot of good that did I'm sure, but you have to capture that - it's too funny.
