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.
