Parker is pretty easy. He slept well from birth, is easygoing and usually listens so yes, I realize that we have been very blessed. We do, however, have a couple of issues that have recently come to our attention and I'm not really sure how to handle them....
1. Word World...this is both a blessing and a curse. I thought Parker like Mickey Mouse, but Mickey does not hold a candle to the characters of Word World. He wakes up wanting to watch it and goes to sleep talking about it. Sometimes (like when I'm cooking) this is awesome, but lately he has become slightly obsessed. You'll see what I mean in the pictures.
|Sitting in the kitchen (the blanket is for the chair's protection, ha) with |
socks up, shoes on, and pretty much nothing else.
|We were on our way to church and he managed to reach it on the|
cabinet where it was charging.
|I had gone downstairs to get my phone and came up to find this...I'm|
honestly not even sure where the iPad was when he found it.
|Again, I had taken it away and turned around and he had climbed|
up to the desk and started it again. Here he was even willing to
go to timeout in order to get a little extra time in with his show.
2. Socks up. This obsession (coupled with "pants up") is a daily battle and is completely exhausting.
|I tried to take a picture to show him that his socks|
were high enough, but he didn't buy it.
3. Out of the bed...for four months now, P has remained in his bed without getting up out of bed...ever. Considering that was one of my biggest fears about moving to a house with so many stairs while simultaneously moving him to a big boy bed, it was awesome. If he needed something, he always just yelled. Today, however, he apparently gained the courage to come out of his room on his own...and down the stairs. Shoot.
|He even brought his blanket and pillow down with him.|
|Yes, we also still have the plug, but that is an entirely|
new post. Lets just put it this way...try moving
to a new country and then traveling back and forth
twice in a month (while potty-training) before you judge.
Don't worry, we're working on it.
