Listen kids, rock n roll sure aint easy

I did a quick count and I have 8 striped tops in my closet. And footwear? 1 pair of boots, 2 booties, 2 pairs of wedges, 2 pairs of sandals, 3 pairs of heels, 3 pairs of canvas and 9 pairs of flats.

But I digress.

Just the other day I was reading up on 20 month old toddler's milestones on Baby Center and checking to see if the son is hitting it. And I'm proud to say he's hitting most of it. He has shown that he understands simple questions like Yes or No, Want or Don't Want, Pick it up, Go to the bed, Sit on the sofa, Wear your diaper, Take off your shoes, Wear your shoes, You want to watch cartoon? and the infamous Do you want me to take the cane?!

And he's also beginning to show his displeasure and tantrums too. Usually when we catch him doing something he's not allowed to do like messing up my stuff, we'll tell him off in a stern No. He'll give us a cheeky smile first and if there's a second repeat of No and he realized he's in the wrong, he'll bowed his head in shame and start his quivering lips. Then he'll come and hug me and try to pacify me instead.

But if he feels that he's not wrong, he'll start to cry and scream. This is when I'll ignore him and walked away. And he'll continue to cry and scream and it'll get louder and louder and I'll just continue to ignore him till he comes over to do his pacifying. That's when I'll tell him off. And when he has calmed down, I'll switched to a gentler tone and explain to him why he shouldn't do it. So far, it seems he is able to understand whats going on, so fingers crossed!
