Stubborn as a mule, sly as a fox, and sweet as honey

My little man will never know how much I love and adore him. “It used to be that I could look at you and see traces of the baby you once were. Now I look at you and instead catch glimpses of the man you will become.”  Author: unknown

He can be stubborn as a mule, sly as a fox, and sweet as honey. He is pushing all the limits, will listen to no one but himself, and has to learn the hard way regardless if it’s right or wrong. He IS just like his mother. Try and tell this little man the word “no” and it’s a drag-out fight till the end. Someone ends up yelling, or put in a corner, and there are tears. Tell his Father the word “no” and it’s a mirror image of our child. Except the child acts out what we fight in our heads. Determined to get his way, or at least the last word. Pure determination and all play. Wild and free-spirited from “The sun is up, Mommy” to “Good night. I love you. I love you more. Forever and ever, you will always be my baby.”

It’s amazing to see such a little boy believe he is such a grown little man. Full of love and pride. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
