Teacher and Student
After all my hand wringing over Rakes and his antics, you'd think I would have been prepared for this.
However, Trot has exceeded myself and his mother's expectations when it comes to being ornery.
As you can see from the picture, Rakes, in the background, is intent on achieving Jedi Master status, while Trot is seemingly content with showing his Dad his belly.
The past week has witnessed the following: Trot, led by Rakes, belly flopping off the bed, falling off the bar where we eat, climbing on the kitchen table, and treating Angie's sewing room like his own personal jungle gym.
If the last 2 weeks is not an example of Karma, I don't know what is: and I have no clue how my Mom kept from strangling me as a child. If possible, this child will surpass his brother as "first choice to send Dad to an early grave" by Christmas this year.
I have no idea how Ang gets ANYTHING done during the day: you can't turn your head for a SECOND with this kid and not find him in a situation where you ask yourself if a visit to the local emergency room is not in your near future.
At the end of the day, I'm spent: and after about a 15 minute cool down period, I find myself laughing my tail off at the things he does. I'll never be able to figure out the difference between men and women: however, having 2 boys does give me a perspective that not everyone gets to experience.
As for my future daughter-in-laws? I'm sorry.
I did the best that I could.
