If you can't beat 'em join 'em

Ok, I have to admit Gavin was driving me absolutely CRAZY yesterday. Getting into everything, throwing fits, throwing toys, sassing me, spitting, and the list goes on and on. I was very close to putting the poor kid up for adoption (my mom is the only eligible adopter in that case) when I finally gave in and decided to just join the little stinker. House work was put on hold and we had fun. We got ice cream and ate it before lunch, played out in the snow for a few minutes and I even attempted to make a tent inside. I am a pretty bad engineer when it comes to building, but it stayed up long enough for us to read some stories in it and then we tore it apart and had a good time jumping off the couch onto blankets and pillows. We had a lot of fun! Thanks for reminding me to enjoy life little man! I love you buddy!!!

Our awesome, not so sturdy tent

I was sitting under the tent and Gavin didn't quite know what to do so he kept peeking in at me.

Gav man sure had a blast!

What a great MOM!! Don't take this the wrong way, but I am glad my kid isn't the only one that is this way sometimes. He currently is in time out for spitting at my Mom after her telling him no for something. But, ya still gotta love them!!
