Growing pains...
So TJ has taken to making threats now when he doesn't get what he wants. Here's how it usually goes down:

"Mommy, I ate all my supper. Can I have some candy?"
"No, you don't need any candy now."
"I'm not gonna eat anymore candy ever again because you said I can't have any candy because I ate all my supper!"
"Ummm, okay then..."


"Mommy, can we go to the water park today?"
"We might later. Right now it's raining, and the water park is closed."
"Well, I'm not gonna ever go to the water park again b/c you won't let me go!!!"
"Ummm, okay then..."

Now, you all might find this amusing. I can't deny that I do get a little chuckle when I hear that he's yet again taken some pleasure away from himself b/c he's mad. However, it's actually pretty scary if you think about it. Sure, he doesn't get it now, but he's only three. Give the boy time. It won't take long for him to figure out how to really make a threat when he doesn't get his way. I mean, that doesn't mean that I'll bow to him, but I'm Sooooo not looking forward to the day I have to pack his clothes b/c he threatened to run away b/c I wouldn't give him some candy!

Oh, and one last note...Trey will be home in about five minutes. He will officially be coming home to live! HOORAY! Now maybe I'll even get to sleep in a day or two a week! I'm so excited...I mean, b/c I love and miss him, not for the sleep (wink, wink).

Have a great day! Talk to you later!
