As Tee is about to get a reminder for being under Ollie’s crib during nap and playing peek-a-boo, I asked him:
Me: “Tee, why have you not obeyed Mommy and rested quietly in your bed?”
Tee (with a very serious face, standing right in front of me): “Mommy, it’s how I love my brothers. I play peek-a-boo and I get Catchel Keese Keese and Ber Ber when Ollie drops them and get his blanket if he throws it out and I’m just busy in there. (long pause) I just love my brothers.”
I had to literally pinch my cheeks with my fingers like a fish to keep from laughing and stay in the discipline moment. So Tee, still serious, started pinching his cheeks just like me. Needless to say, he got only a warning…there was just too much going on in that head of his.
Love that boy.
