We've cracked B's computer addiction I hope, for the moment. I would rather the children watch a program like Dora, or Odd Squad rather than surf the internet. I think it's important for them to experience a polished product that went through multiple layers of production. It's been a few days since B has been sneaking onto the computer to watch Ryan's Toy Review or play games. I don't even mind if he plays games if it is during the time of day we play games at and he has permission.
It is fun to give B treats. Recently he asked P for some brownie. He said "Can I have a brownie, my mouth doesn't have any food in it."

B got this costume at a kids carnival. Who can ever say "no" to this kid. Not me apparently. I don't like action hero dress up or play. I have heard that it is good for kids, but I think it is toxic to encourage them to mimic a violent "grown-up" world. Anyway! B thought those spikes on his arm were for hitting people but I assured them that they were for going fast. B has no idea who Batman is, and I'm sure that this mask is keeping anyone from knowing the secret identity of Batman.

B is potty training. Recently we were getting into the car and B said he had to potty. I asked him if he wanted to pee on a tree or put on a diaper. His expression as that question percolated into his mind was hilarious. It was like he was saying "I didn't know that was an option! Yes!"

B has discovered "Little Einsteins" and he's in love. B has a slow rate of speech and the theme song for "Little Einsteins" is the first one he's tried to sing along with. The kids were in the car and giving each other a character from the show. You'd think B would choose Leo since that is the red haired character who drives the ship! But B insists that he is rocket. Yes.

We teach the kids to share. When one child is being potty trained, they get a reward (jelly bean or gummy bear), and so does everyone else. B is bringing this full circle. He found a bag of gummy snacks. "Gummy Snacks!" he cried. Then he brought it to me and said "Can I share this with everyone?"
Can't say no.
Can't say no.

On the down side, B is nearing the end of his 2nd year and starting to push boundaries. It's so hard to see that happening because there was never a cuter or sweeter child, I know! And when he does things like throw a whole shelf of books on the floor, or pick up the baby.... Oh!
He says "Don't get mad!" and "You are screaming at me!" in the same stilted way that I adore.
I love you B. I'm so sorry that the next few years are going to be hard.

He also sneaks into the garage often and gets into things. Literally!

My sister gave us several hex buggies last year. B is fond of them and every month or so will come around saying "Bug, bug." I still always ask if he has seen a bug. Hey, it's Florida. But thankfully, he is always just asking for the little robo bugs. I put a new battery in one and he has a little friend for a few days. Then it "dies" and he forgets about it, until next time.
B's speech has come along brilliantly in the last 6 months. I find myself speaking to him in a slow enunciated manner, as he speaks to me. It's fun. He really pays attention to word endings, more so than any of the other kids. It's like he needed more time to get that all sorted out.
B is such a song bird. He loves to sing "Luyah...luyah...luyah..." When P put on the Hallelujah chorus today, B grinned so big. B also sings the "Gloria....." from Angels We have Heard on High. Of course I'm bragging, he's my kid! And it's so fun being his mom.
