26 lbs of Drama

I missed the memo that 14 month old boys are now the new 13 year old girls. Moody, Fickle, Prone to quick temperament changes.
I always wanted a houseful of boys because I always thought boys to be emotionally stable. Drama-free. Sure, I knew there would be bumps, bruises, scrapes, blood and broken stuff. I can live with that. In fact I wish I were living with that.

But instead my days are full of drama. Dramatic drama. Happily playing one moment, sobbing and tears the next moment drama. FOR NO GOOD REASON. Temper tantrums followed by giggles. Or giggles followed by temper tantrums. Nothing predictable.

He removes his clothes, and I can only imagine if he were capable of speaking he would tell me the clothes were ugly. Even though the day before he liked them (because he wore them all day.) And, if he were capable of dressing himself I am sure he would put on some more clothes. That were "cool" - changing his outfit at least four times a day.

He spends an enormous amount of time in front of the mirror. In fact he cries if he is admiring himself and we move him away from the mirror. He just loves to look at himself. And why not? He is cute, even if he is as emotional as a 13 year old girl.

Thanks for passing on the memo. Now I can prepare myself for when Josh reaches that age.

Oh but look at how cute he is!!!

:) I know, I know... He isn't mine. So I'm allowed to say that. :)

Hmm..........don't know about boys so much, but in my experience 14 month old girls are much the same. The good news is that most of the time they grow out of it, and I'm pretty sure you can still hold out hope for your emotionally stable household.

He'll grow out of some of that. ;)

The bright side is that you get to remind him of it when he is a teenager. :)

Oh, I think little boys go through a drama queen period. My son wasn't all that different from Judah at that age. As they age, though, there seems to be much less drama with the boys than the girls!!!!

With three teenaged daughters, there is more drama around here than a soap opera. My son just seems to be dramaless right now....

I think it's cute.

I'm sure I'll pay for that someday. ;)
