******Whining. Nobody likes it and every
Thankfully, Eric has come up with a clever solution.
The whining usually begins with my name becoming a bad word. You know how it is. When the word that we once longed for our baby to first say becomes a 3 or more syllable drawn-out screech of a sound "M-a-ooooo-mmmm!!!!!!"
Last week some of the whining involved things like:
"M-A-OMMMM Alex won't give me my toy back."
"M-A-OMMMMM Lucas won't let me play anymore!"
"M-A-OOOOMM Alex is sitting on my head and won't move."
So what is Eric's awesome solution?
Well he whines back.
"M-A-OOOMMMM" one of the kids begin.
Eric: "AAA-LEX Mom is sitting on that chair."
Eric: "L-uuucas Mom has a head"
And of course the kids are soon laughing and trying to add their just as ridiculous statements. And it works-- they forgot why they were whining and are now laughing together.
One night as we were all gathered together in the living room, the kids were all sitting inside a little tent turned sideways and the whining began. "M-A--OOMMM! They won't leave and I wanted to be in here myself!" Lucas whined.
So Eric began with his whining. Soon the kids were laughing and Alex tried to join in.
Alex: "M-A-OOOMMMM-- Dad did... Dad did...." she paused trying to think of something clever.
Ryder: "A Poop!!"
And yes, we all lost it. Ah my toddler, always the little comedian.
