Cold March Walk Leads to a Minor Temper Tantrum

A glimpse into the life of an (almost) 2 year old...these photos were taken the same day as the cute PB Wagon photos. We came back from a walk (Caleb loves being outside) and he was not happy about having to help with dinner. So he stands at the back door screaming. And so I ignored him. Well, that's not true, I took photos, which technically is not ignoring, but let's not argue semantics! The first photo shows Caleb all relaxed and decked out in his hat/gloves that Grandma Harland made him, the next is what happened when we went inside, and the last is him resorting to being nice, giving me puppy eyes and saying & signing please. His temper tantrums don't last long-because he is still easily distracted--this time by songs and a snack.

Peanut Butter Wagon!

Well, today Caleb thought it would be funny to put his peanut butter sandwiches into the tractor wagon that I had on the table to occupy him. As you can see from these photos, he is quite pleased with himself. And although the old adage says "Don't play with your food," I don't agree, because you know what? He ate ALL of his lunch! Mom wins! (& so does Caleb!)
