Don't let this innocent face fool ya!
Don't let this cute inncoent three year old face fool ya. This boy is going to pull my hair out. Was pretty upset tonight. Little Coltie...yes my sweet lovely little angel of a three year old...I was ready to toss him to the curb tonight (OK not really, but...) I don't know if it's a stage he's going through cause I don't remember the other two guys doing this, but he is going through this stage of saying "stupid" and "stinkin'"...Stupid is a no-no word in our house...and just the way that little guy uses the word stinkin'...kind of like "I don't want to pick up that stinkin' car". Maybe it's the attitude behind it as well. He's just so strong willed. He will look me in the face and say it and hardly bat an eye. It was a battle of wills with him and I for sure tonight I was bound and determined not to lose! (I was praying for strength and wisdom the whole time...Jesus..Jesus...just give me strength.) I finally got tired of his mouth and attitude that after dinner I washed him up and put him in bed. The whole time he was crying "I want to be good...I want to be a good boy" which just didn't work for me tonight. I was glad I stuck to my guns and put him in bed. I think he was tired anyway...and I know I was tired of his attitude. ACK...how did my parents ever allow us to live!?!?!? Man being a parent sometimes can be so hard...it is worth it though, it's just that days like this make it hard.
I'm so glad God blessed me with these boys...life would be too boring without them.
Well I'm going to try and re-attach my hair now ;-)
