My son. My BOY. My Max. He is just truly the BEST!
But, we should discuss a thing or two, because I'm afraid I might have something to be concerned about. Let me know if you agree or not.
First we have this crazy situation. Not once, but TWICE as I've gone into the kids room to retrieve Max in the morning....I was greeted with a scene straight out of Nightmare on Elm Street (or in this case, Nightmare on Nina)... Like perhaps Max and Freddy Kreuger had a brawl in the night, and Max lived to tell the tale. I mean really........THIS is disturbing. NO?
Oh hey Mom. Just a little blood for breakfast. The first time I walked in on this blood bath I nearly had a coronary. There was blood all over his blanket, all over his sheets, his pillow, and as you can see HIS FACE. And my mind begins racing with what in the world has gone awry. As it turns out, he appears to have just had a gnarly bloody nose in the night and this is the aftermath.
At least he's just so freaking sweet about it and happy. In fact, he was none the wiser that he was covered in his own hemoglobin.
And then we have this:
Tutu...check. Purse....check. Tiara......check
You've all seen the video I posted of him spinning. The "problem" is, he insists on this getup at least 4 days a week.
But what is NOT to love about this look? He is so damn adorable in it. He will pull the big tub out of the closet and lug it clear out to the kitchen. All the while saying in his high pitched squeak..."dressup, dressup." And then I'll take the lid off, he'll locate HIS tutu and on it goes. Usually followed by the heels. Then he clicks around happily for the day. Sometimes napping in the tutu. What? Is this wrong?
Does he not look like he's holding court or what?
Jere HATES that i allow him to do this. He freaks out. I just say, the bigger deal you make of it, the worse it is. Just allow him to play and be. He's a "baby". Am I wrong?
Ok, nothing wrong here. Just a gratutitous shot of the freaking cutest LINEBACKER of a child ever. Oh, the headband? 'Tis nothing. He screams of some 80's movie character to me. Like the guy who played Biff in Back to the Future.
Don't MESS. This kid will get ya! Or at least his rat nasty stain covered shirt will get you. Seriously? I should be fired!
So, be honest....should I be concerned?
