    This cracks me up. Usually the oldest is grumpy and the youngest goofy. The poor middle kid always has to make things dramatic. LOL!

    Hunter used to make that face all the time (middle one) oh and he now makes the 1st boys face daily

      I’m sorry Jenny. It’s tough as they get older and don’t want to listen and every little thing seems to end in a screaming duel. Just a tiny hint, as soon as he knows you’re in charge and you don’t waffle, he’ll get more agreeable. Kids really do want discipline and structure but they also want to argue. When they know it won’t work, they stop because it’s not working. But it’s so damn hard at the time.

        Oh, the pouting. If your kid is anything like mine (the one with the same birthday), Lord help you. Miss E cannot stand for someone else to be in control of her. It started to get bad around age 3 and now I have officially termed her “oppositional.” She’s the model child as long as everything she does is her own idea. Ugh.

        Miss A does her share of pouting too, but that’s usually about comparing. “You gave her the red one and I only got an orange one.” “You said she’s sweet but you didn’t say it about me.” Etc., etc.

          I swear ever since Hunter turned 4, he’s been awful! Not listening and wanting to talk back to every little thing you say…it’s quite aggravating! And you say, where’d my little boy go who used to be so sweet and listen all the time?!

          • SKL says:

            The not listening is about to drive me batty. Just today I hollered at Miss E for that (not that Miss A doesn’t do it too!) and she cried like she was so abused. WHAT IS SO HARD about listening to me? (I’d just got done telling her “don’t do x” and not one minute later, she’s doing x again. Sheeshhhhh.)

              oh, this warms the cockles of my heart…. At least I’m not alone in the world!!! Josh is 8. Oppositional, you bet. But we’re working with it…. lots of consequences for ignoring. I’ve learned (well, I’m *learning*) to pick my battles, and I will only play “what if” when I have the time and inclination to turn it around on him and make him think about it. Otherwise, I shut him right down. And he’s getting better…. slowly…

      I think we should turn this into a post. I’ll do it for tomorrow. There is so much to say about it and I’m sure we all have pointers. Trust me, I’ve been there.

    With only two kids, it is so hard to get a good photo! I have been known to threaten. “Smile, you little brat, or I’ll beat your butt!” Thankfully, kids are born actors.

    Looking through the 100 annual attempts to get a good Christmas picture is rather funny. In most of the pictures, one kid or the other is crying or pouting, blinking, sticking her tongue out, or showing her underwear. The rest involve one kid gleefully pulling the other’s hair. (The latter are my secret favorites.)

    This is hilarious! Priceless, if you ask me! lol

    I wonder if we should have a post with everyone submitting a family photo “outtake” so we could all share some laughs.
