Being little May 17, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 12:09 pm

Our 3 year old and almost 2 year old can have some really hard days. They can get frustrated about their toys- not wanting to share them, wanting to throw them, or wanting to use them in a way that the toy just can’t work.  The two of them can get frustrated when they are asked to do something, such as,”Lucy, it is time to change your diaper.  Come over here so I can change you.”  Or for example,”Cord put on your shoes before we leave.” These kind of difficult requests can make the two of them melt in to all kinds of whines, fits, and groans.  At times like this, when the two of them are flailing on the floor, Eric will slightly sarcastically say to them,”It’s hard being little!” 

Cord has started saying this phrase all the time- genuinely saying,”Dad, it is hard being little!”  It cracks me up to hear him.  I mean on his schedule today is snack, nap, play outside, dinner that someone made him, and a long bath before bed.  I think I could handle being little again 🙂

    When I got him out of bed this morning, he was laying on his back and the first words out of his mouth…..”daddy, it’s hard being little.” So funny!

    This made our day. It should go to the whole world to put life in perspective. He is developing his sense of humor.
