Only Sometimes

Yesterday was ROUGH.  Yikes.  Sometimes it feels like this kid does not listen unless we ask a million times (read: nag) or shout at him.  And then sometimes he does exactly what we say the very first time and Dave and I stare at each other dumbfounded.  So we got Emily some new toys to play with, of course Nolan has commandeered them as his own (she doesn't care).  So one day when he was running around naked, not getting dressed, and trying to get Emily to play with it (read: hitting her in the face with it) I told him to 'go play with that in his room, go sit in your bean bag chair'.  And he did!  I failed to include the 'get dressed' before that.  Oh well, he did a little bit of independent play, even if he was naked!  Great job, Buddy!

  1. The oldest will always demand attention. Its just crazy. I remember going through it with Claire when thomas was a newborn. Hang in there. When the second comes along, they crave attention either good or bad and it gets exhausting!! Claire still takes toys away from thomas but she never hits. We need to catch up soon!!!!! Miss you!!!!
