So I've been told time and time again the "terrible two's" are nothing compared to the "big three!" I used to just shrug it off ..But lately I'm beginning to think they weren't too far off. Brody will be turning three in September... and in just a few short weeks a streak of defiance has begun shining through his sly little smile!
Water is something Brody LOVES to play in...sink...pool...or hose. For watering her plants, Grandma has the coolest sprayer that is attached to the family hose. Day after day Brody has tried to figure out the knobs that make the sprayer turn on. One day he finally won the struggle and before we knew it water was spraying most everyone during a family dinner! Mike...who was a few feet away from those being soaked...assertively requested him to turn it off...without the slightest hesitation Brody defiantly directed the water right at Mike and began repeating the soaking process...What a stinker...Without question Brody received a blunt swat on his little bottom followed by a teary timeout! But apparently that wasn't enough...He pulled the same stunt...only with my aerosol hairspray...ugggh! But...even with all his stubborn stunts...we still can't help but love that defiant little boy to pieces!
The only thing I keep hoping...this means he's not going to give up too easily in life...and just because someone tells him he can't do something...doesn't mean it can't be done!
