This picture cracks me up because I see many of Declan's preferences. This day, he wanted his glasses, not his hat. His baby doll HAD to come with us (though I tried to keep it in the house so it doesn't get filthy/lost). I offered up a snack of Trader.Joe's cinnamon crackers but he also insisted on "crunchies" too.
Mark put Declan to bed tonight while I picked up the living room (toy explosion). He then went to "jam" with some buddies and it's been over an hour of me trying to get the little man to sleep. The most recent time in his room, he insisted that he needed bandaids for his skinned knee. Okay. No prob. Then the preferences kicked in- he didn't want Mickey bandaids, he wanted Toy.Story bandaids. So I laid him back down and placed his favorite 2 stuff animals at his side. I started to cover him in a blanket and he literally went from drifting off to sleep to whining. Why the whining? He wanted the GREEN blanket, not the POLKA DOT blanket.
Ha! Please tell me this isn't just my child?! I choose my battles so you'll see lots of giving in. Hope it doesn't bite me later. Where's the hand book on all of this? ;)
