Pint-Size Meltdown

Daniel has started this little thing we call his mini-meltdown. I haven't gotten it on the video camera yet but as soon as I do I'm going to put it on here.

Years from now, I will show people (his high school girlfriend) and it will haunt Daniel throughout his adult life! You know what I'm talking about? Those silly little embarrassing things you did as a child and you want to crawl under a rock every time it gets mentioned? Yes sirree, that is what I'm going to do.

I've also come to the realization that Daniel (and Daddy) watch too much TV. Although to come to his defense, it is somewhat educational!! Regardless whatever the show is, as soon as the credits start to run at the end of the show, Daniel starts with the mini-meltdown. The biggest boo-boo lip comes out and he starts crying inconsolably. This lasts for about 60 seconds until the next show comes on, or until Moose A. Moose starts talking about Zee and what items match or are different on the screen! Then life is good again and we can all be happy.

As Lonnie says, "Daniel, you need to realize there are commercials in life!"

OMG, Max has the boo-boo lip too! Since he was one years old! It kills me every time. And, like Daniel, Max likes TV entirely too much. So does Dave. We have resorted to bringing a portable DVD with us to restaurants so he will sit quietly.

Happy, happy holidays!
