Problem solving

Grayson loves to climb on me. He has Mom confused with a piece of playground equipment. It drives me nuts! This morning he was trying to climb on my legs while I drank my first cup of coffee. Physical contact with me prior to sufficient caffeine input is dangerous and may result in bodily injury.

I put my coffee on the coffee table next to my feet (Mom, calm down, it's my furniture I will put my feet on the coffee table if I want to!) lifted him off my legs and put him on the floor. Then I looked him in the eyes and told him, "Stop climbing on Mommy you will spill my coffee."

Grayson stopped and looked at my coffee. I thought "Oh My Gosh he is going to follow directions!" Ha! He carefully and very slowly moved my coffee to the center of the table with out spilling a drop. Then he climbed back up on my outstretched legs. "Coffee Safe" he announced bouncing up and down on my knees. Ouch!

I don't know if I should be proud of his problem solving skills or just irritated he is still touching me. Is it wrong for the mommy to whine to the daddy "He's touching me!!"  Yeah, I thought so!

You should be proud of his problem-solving skills! That was quite smart indeed. :) But I'm with you - I'm sure I'd want to scream "stop touching me!" LOL

So, one week! Bet you can't wait. I have four cases of homebrew just about ready to drink... you guys should drop by if you are in the area.
