Life with a toddler

I've been working on getting Mr. O to clean up his toys and put them away before moving on to the next play thing.  He's not in agreement with this crazy idea of mine.

We are currently on day 3 of the Block Incident.  He was playing with blocks the other day and then wanted to move on to puzzles.  I told him that he could have the puzzles after he put the blocks away.  He told me that he didn't want to put the blocks away and asked a few more times for the puzzles.  I just kept telling him that he could have them once the blocks were put away.  We've done the same back and forth now for 3 days.  The blocks are still all over the floor and he hasn't gotten to play with puzzles.  He totally gets what is going on but he's waiting it out to see if I'll crack first.  I almost did tonight after he fell asleep but I'm kind of amused and curious to see how long it will be until he cracks.

and I just realized that I got the colors mixed up in my last post.  Mr. O knows the correct color (or object) he just wants you to agree with him so he can correct you.

Dr. appt with new OB tomorrow and they will be doing an ultrasound to check on baby brother's growth.  Can't wait to get another peek at the little guy.

I totally admire you for the Block Incident!! Good for you for sticking to it, O will benefit from that lesson! Elena currently thinks clean up is a fun game, so she dumps stuff in order to pick them up again...unfortunately after the 2nd dump she tends to get bored & wander off, leaving a huge mess!!
