No matter how "creative" or "bad" they get I can't help admiring their tenacity to get what they want. Is it a Mommy thing? Blogger thing? I live with a bunch of crazy people who make my life as the head crazy person really interesting thing?
All I know is that I love them dearly and when they actually use words to ask for stuff I get very excited because it can be really frustrating dealing with two learning disabled kids. BTW, both are speech delayed and Stephen is learning sign language (translated: I'm learning sign language - LOL).
Sometimes I think that is why eye candy is so important to me. I can take lots of pictures and the 2 year old will sort through them and select items he likes. He will arrange them and indicate what he wants. The infamous, "This One" is one of my favorite phrases because he always says it with such certainty, as if he knows when he asks for something from Mommy and Daddy, we will stop at nothing to get it for him.
Does that trait in a parent encourage more speech or are we creating a monster down the road? I honestly don't know. We do very interesting things when we love someone. Today's extreme blog sport concerns water views. I'm going out in 26 degree weather because my kid wants to go to Canarsie Pier. Seems he wants to see the ocean from the Brooklyn shore line. Will have some little minion eye candy for you guys later.
Turns out my kids are snow bunnies just like their Mama. Sometimes I wonder if that is a good thing... After all, Daddy likes hot weather. We are eventually relocating to FL. Hmm... ;-)
