Return without receipt?

My friend Melissa shared her theory that the "half-years" are the most challenging, and at 2.5 years old, my little buddy boy here is making sure she's soooo right.

Here's the short list of Griffin's terrible-twos offenses:

1. We experienced a complete meltdown at the grocery store which led him to empty an entire bag of M&Ms at the cash register, gaining some serious bounce-and-spread off the linoleum floor.

2. We got kicked out of (as in seriously asked to leave) a popular child photography studio in the mall during yet another meltdown.  And it was already a mall of questionable social patronage, so if we were being classified as "the worst," know that I was dying slowly on the inside from mortification.

3. He's so familiar with time-outs, he'll commit an offense and will march himself into time-out before being told.

We joke that Griffin is lucky he's cute because lately I've been threatening to send him back to the hospital gift shop where we told Wavey he came from.

Yes, there is a reason they are sooo cute! Mine are the cutest when they are sleeping after a long day of getting into everything.

He is adorable and knows how to work it. Who kicks out a misbehaving kiddo in a photo studio - really? Have they no idea of how children behave? I'm certain they've seen worse!

He is so cute and I love the lip. My little one has started to test the limits too. I'm sure some of these types of activities are in my future.

oh boy - the lip!
I read an article somewhere that says the 1/2 years are bad. As far as I'm concerned..any time can be bad. My daughter is ~2 1/2 and she's been pushing my buttons for months!

He's so cute I can't BELIEVE he would do anything wrong.
We have yet to be kicked out of anywhere only because I don't get out much :)
