oooooh...my little henry. look at this sweet little leaf monster poking his head out. I have had the most challenging week with this guy. I'll sum it up with a brief recap of our trip to the post office yesterday. Line out the door. Jake's school bus coming in 20 mins. (I know, I know...you can't EVER be in a hurry with a 3 year old...especially this one.) Henry doesn't want to go through the door. I have an arm full of packages...he is not budging. I try to persuade,distract,plead...nothing is working. I am dragging him through the door. Now I am dropping packages. Does ANY one help me? short answer is NO. okay, so thanks for nothing neighbors...now I've gotten Henry in line. Everything is going well. I remind him of our conversation at home about him being Mommy's post office helper. He smiles and says okay. 10 seconds later he is pulling his pants down and jumping up and down. Okay, now I am too close to the finish line to leave! I tell him sternly to pull his pants up. He pulls them down further. Then he puts his hands down the back of his underwear and starts jumping up and down. Then he ...I swear to God..."toots" LOUD and forever and starts cracking up laughing. Now I'm hoping for lightning to strike me rather than claim this child as my own. It's my turn. I grab Henry with 1 arm. Balance my packages with the other arm. Fish out my debit card with my elbow. Henry tells me how sorry he is. I put him down. He starts kicking me in my shin. Now (still not a word or understanding smile from a soul) I turn around and announce "Don't worry, we'll be gone in a minute."
Please tell me you go through things like this too.
Tell me I can get through this.
