Little Crack-up

Milo's underwear and pants tend to be too big around the waist, making him prone to a plumber's crack.  I reached out and hiked up his undies as he walked past me this afternoon, and he spun around, finger raised in warning, head tilted to one side in consternation.  "Mommy Naughty.  Time out!"  He was in total seriousness, but I burst out laughing, then tried to explain that Mommies are allowed to pull up their kiddies' underwear, it's part of the job description.  I guess it gives a little window into the 2-year-old psyche.  He must figure that what I don't like him doing is "naughty," and merits punishment, so the same must apply to what he doesn't like ME doing.  I follow the logic.....

  1. Cute story – it’s those little memories that you stay in your MMB (Mommy Memory Bank). Look at Milo! – what a big boy he’s becoming. Perfect for a farm ad – drinking out of a John Deere glass & a big happy smile.
