If you know us personally, this won't come as shocking either. Blaine may be adorable in every physical way, but boy is that kid temperamental! I know some of you want to jump and blame me for this, but truth is, he's always been this way. That kid came flying out of the womb with an attitude! He was an incredibly fussy baby, the kind that would scream for literally hours straight to get what he wanted. Well what he wanted was always his momma. *insert small sneaky smile from momma here* It was difficult. He didn't walk until 19 months old because he insisted on being held by me all the time, not even Daddy would do. No bathroom trip was complete for me without Blaine screaming like he was being tortured to death outside the door. I remember his toddlerhood like this:
And my personal favorite...
Yep, most pictures we tried to take of him were taken by me, looking down at him screaming his head off, begging to be picked up. Gosh, I love that kid!
Now, at seven years old, he is still very partial to certain people (he does tolerate his dad now though). He gets set off pretty easily and most of the time, no one knows why. Luckily, his teacher at school dotes on him like I do. Looks will get you pretty far in life! In all seriousness, we are working on attitude. It's a long road ahead, but here's what happened yesterday...
Blaine was sitting at the table working on his homework (without me threatening his life!) and being sweet to his sister.
me: You sure are in a good mood today!
Blaine: Yeah, I am. It's weird. I'm usually very, very angry!
Ahhhh, small steps.
