genetic parenting.

he wanted blake's race car first.
then he wanted the garbage truck first.
then...you get it.
being a parent is utterly horrifying.
the good days are when they say please and thank you without being told.
that has to be my AWESOME parenting skills.
the bad days are when you're trying to get a 2 1/2 yr old to not cry every time he doesn't get his way.
that has to be genetics.
thank goodness for my friends who love us just the way we are.

sean finally covered his mouth so the birthday boy could blow out his own candles.

it's a good thing they're best buds.

forgiving.
