The Many Moods of Joshua

Raising Josh has been an adventure to say the least. He is an amazing boy, but even amazing boys have their moments.

Josh is going through the “terrible” two stage of life now. Needless to say, he is definitely keeping me on my toes. I waited 10 years to go through this stage of life with him, so you won’t hear me complain. However, it is challenging, fun, exhausting, happy, and many more emotions.  Today I got to catch  images of a fake temper tantrum. This particular fit was because I asked him to scoot a little closer so it would be easier to pick him up. Yes, he does understand what I am saying.  This moment occurs several times a day. Sometimes I want to laugh and sometimes I want to cry. Enjoy the many personalities of Josh. These were taken in a two-minute time frame.

I will smack myself in the face. You don’t want me to do that, do you?

(That is a wonderful behavior he picked up from a former classmate)

Please pick me up Mommy.
