My Lucas



How can the sweetest boy in the whole world be so stubborn and throw the wickedest tantrums? I love this kid so much. He is such a great eater, goes to sleep in his own bed without any protest,doesn't really get into too much trouble but man is he stubborn. There is no reasoning with this kid! Especially when it comes to candy. One piece won't do for him and he always has to hold the bag of whatever it is. He loves to be "nakey" we call it, nothing but a diaper. The minute we get home from anywhere he strips down. So this morning we get home from the gym and he starts pulling off his clothes, he's been wanting to do everything on his own lately, so the shirt is stuck on his head and one arm, he's screaming but won't let me help him because he wants to do it himself. This continues and everytime I go to help him he runs away crying but yet it's still stuck. I couldn't help but grab my camera. This kid eats a ton but is so skinny!It's no wonder. He probably burns like 300 calories each tantrum, full body flopping on the floor style and thrashing around in his crib when I put him in there because he can't get control! So multiply 300 by 3, atleast on a good day, 900 calories burned! Forget the gym I think we should all start throwing tantrums, nah too exhausting. I get tired just watching him. Hopefully this too shall pass! SOON!

This too shall pass. Just look at that angelic face! I have a couple of very stubborn kids too. I convince myself that their strong will and determination is a positive trait. HA! I'm trying to channel those traits into the right direction. It's just those tantrums that we have to get through first, right? You do an awesome job as a Mommy, Nikki!

It's gotta be due to the red hair. Sara seems to be a spitfire too. She can get to her mad cry/scream in no time flat. Good thing these kiddos are soo cute!
