cash in may.
-- basically the only epic tantrums he's had in the last month or so have occurred when trying to leave the park. it's really not awesome trying to load a screaming banshee of a 3 year old into your car with everyone staring at you, thinking you're beating the hell out of him (which, to be fair, i kind of want to do sometimes.) because apparently their children have never had such a meltdown - fucking a-holes. no, i'm not bitter at all.
-- after months of fighting him on the damn potty training, he's really starting to get it. poop has still only happened a handful of times (too much information?) but he's got the pee thing down. as long as we're at home. baby steps.
-- we've also spent many months fighting with him about coming to the dinner table. i finally got tired of it and gave up. the very next day, he sat down at the table while i was dishing out our food, patiently waiting for his plate (never mind the fact that he still won't eat half of what i put in front of him - that's a separate issue.) and ever since, as soon as i start setting the table, he comes in on his own, sits through the whole meal and generally puts in a moderate effort to eat. all because i quit nagging him. this kid sometimes - he baffles me.
