He is cute - I know - but he is driving me completely crazy. He has always been kind of a Mamma's boy but seriously he won't leave my side. He talks my ear off all day long and wants to do everything I am doing. I should be grateful for a buddy but half the time I just want a moment of peace to do my project without little hands. He keeps saying, "Please, Mom, what can I do to help?" I know, I know. Any mom would love to have her child say that to them but really it is usually things I really didn't want help on. I should just love it because it won't last. I just want him to play with friends or toys or anything. Oh well.
2nd problem is that he is the biggest negotiator. He always wants just one of something or he will promise his best behavior for life if I will buy it. (you know that doesn't last though). I was SO good with the two oldest but I find myself caving way too often with child number 3. Help! He just knows how to work it with me. And dang he is persistent. In my parenting class (Love and Logic) they call it "brain drain." He has mastered it. (yes, he talked me into buying that dumb candy toy thing he is holding.) In fact, I just now became the meanest mom because I won't let him have one of my 2 1/2 gallon zip lock bags (which I use for scrapbooking kits). Please. Why does he think he even wants one. Ughh. He is cute and that saves him- often! But he is up for rent if someone is feeling lonely and needs a buddy - actually he is free no rent necessary.
