discipline?

Sunday night we all went to dinner to celebrate Tyler’s birthday and my birthday.  Me, Matt, & Zane, Erik & Lindsey, Tyler & Lacey, DeeDee & Skeet, and Mama Doot.

Happy Birthday, Uncle TyTy! They are so cute.IMG_1733Afterwards, we all came back to our house for made-from-scratch red velvet cupcakes with made-from-scratch cream cheese icing.  Made by my husband, not me. Oh, so delicioso.

Zane thought that wearing glasses would help him read the kids’ menu.IMG_1727 IMG_1732 Now, Zane is a really sweet boy. He rarely gets into trouble…..however, he does like an audience. And showing off.

With the whole family at HIS house, he thought it was the perfect time to show his Nascar skills on his Handy Manny Truck. This includes getting it up to stop speeds (Flintstone style) and then coasting straight into the walls. Over and over again.  I had already told him to stop, so on crash number 4 or 5 mommy decided it was time to really get stern.

I got down on his level. Got a really good grip on his arm. My nose inches from his nose.

Zane Bell! Mommy has asked you to STOP running your Handy M……..”

At first he gets this really guilty look on his face. Then he looks up and gives me a big ole kiss on the lips!

I was done. Whatever. Do whatever you want. How do you discipline something that cute?!

Here are a few pics from the past week or so. He looked so cute this day and I wanted a pic. He was NOT having it!

Still cute, even with ketchup-face.IMG_1741

These are from my phone, so they’re not great.

This is what we spend a LOT of time doing: Playing Fuhfuhs in Ane’s room! (tractors)fuhfuh

After he ate a pancake and banana for breakfast, he put his sheep in the high chair and ‘fed’ it a donut and banana (the banana is in his hand). Then he threw his hands in the air to let me know that the sheep was “all done!” I love seeing his imagination play out.sheep

That's a cute story. Yeah, I would have been done to. You want a kiss? Ok, do whatever you want:)
