My Thing 2 thinks it is funny to put her finger in her nose. I love the introduction to new people. Hi I am JD and this is my Daughter "finger-in-her-nose". Lately she has been putting it up there just so I can take it out and say ewe! Over and over again. I am trained rather well now so I keep the game going for a mere half-laugh after the fourth or fifth time. She has an amazingly polite,-that-is-almost-worth-a-real-laugh-but-not-quite-thanks-for trying-anyways-laugh. And still I keep trying. She is a lot like her dad or, so I have been told, when he was little. She is shy and quiet. He is anything but shy and quiet now, but when he was younger he was reported to be a tender youth.
Thing 2 has been toning down her super sonic high pitched scream that insects come crawling out of the ground to move away from. In church we especially love when she shows us this talent. Last week in our meeting Pat wasn’t feeling good so I said I would go and he could stay home and nap with the kids. I looked around the congregation and found that there were many sets of parents wrestling their children. It instantly reduced the anxiety I felt over the disruptive behavior that only mine seem to display.it usually starts…oh yeah as soon as we walk in.
Yesterday was tranquil and relaxing and I just laughed as my boy wandered from family to family towards the exit doors placing his train in the hands of any one who would take it. Of course he reclaimed it as soon as they had it for a five second count, and moved onto the next row of pews.
It was a nice balance between freaking out and spending the entire meeting out in the hall, and disrupting the entire meeting with screaming children. Loved it.
