I Know This Much Is True...

That as soon as you figure something out as a parent, the kid senses it and decides to throw you curve ball after curve ball...

* I like green beans. A week later, no green beans, no green beans! I only want broccoli. Until I can't stand that anymore and I only want peas until...

* I nap every day for three hours at 1pm. Until I don't. On the day that you really have a lot you need to do while I'm sleeping.

* I love to color, unless you ask me to draw Nana a picture in her thank you note.

* I don't know how to crawl out of my crib until you write about it in your blog and I get to thinking and then suddenly, I can! Ha Ha! I shall bound out of the bed and come running into your room early Sunday morning proclaiming my success "Peanut. Out. Bed!"

Thanks for keeping me on my toes, kiddo. I promise to never, ever, ever mention something I'm proud of you for NOT doing because I know you will suddenly decide you want to do the opposite.

Although...

Will that work with potty training? Hmmmmm...

If you're reading, peanut, I hope you never learn how to use the potty, particularly any time soon since your daddy and I just love, love, love changing your smelly messes.

Although if my hypothesis is correct - that just when I think I've figured it out he switches it up on me - then that potty statement will be the first thing I've said in weeks that peanut actually decides to listen to and I'll be changing diapers until he hits kindergarten.

Ugh.

HAHA! I'm always saying this. The minute we think we have a handle on everything the kids change on us. hehe
