So, it's almost 2:00 a.m. and I'm still awake. Apparently, a diet Coke after 10:00 is not a good idea.
Today, we had some interesting conversations with Max.
Me: "Max, I thought I buttoned the buttons on your shirt. Why are they undone now? Did you unbutton them?"
Max: "Yes I did, because they were also FREAKING ME OUT!!"
Brielle: "Max, I'm going to help you clean up your puzzle, O.K.?"
Max: "No! Do you want me to FLIP OUT? I also going to FLIP OUT!"
(I sit in the rocking chair with Max every night, and sing to him before he goes to bed. We have a glider rocker with a gliding ottoman.
Earlier in the day Max had moved the ottoman around so that it moved side to side instead of back and forth with the rocking chair.
I had the nerve to move it back.)
Max: "No, it also can't be that way! IT'S FREAKING IT OUT! THE OTTOMAN IS ALSO FREAKING OUT!"
(I think he's spending way too much time under the influence of his older siblings.)
Earlier today, Max was starting in with the questions again, and so I tried another tactic.
Max: "Why is this a stool?"
Me: "Why do you think it's a stool?"
Max: (Looking at me like I'm a complete moron) "Because it's a stool."
If only I had known earlier that it was that easy. At least now I know how to answer him.
On a lighter note, we had a bit of a victory today :0)
Max ate a vegetable!
O.K. it was just a small piece of lettuce and he did say that he liked it, however, he wouldn't eat any more, but hey, we need to start somewhere!
