The majority of this week was pretty typical. One funny thing: on occasion, if Abigail is finally sitting still and doing something quietly, Joseph will walk up to her and see if he can get her to do something fun or silly with him. This is normally not a problem until he recognizes the correct time to stop being silly…and she doesn’t. Then I’m stuck trying to get her to calm down, which is no easy feat (and usually ends in tears). Since I don’t want Joseph to think he’s in trouble when I ask him to stop before he starts, I’ve started using the phrase, “Don’t rock the boat” with him. Well, there was one time, when Abigail was playing on her tablet, and he came up to her, trying to start a tickle match. Apparently she wasn’t in the mood (which is kind of surprising, actually) because she said, “Mom! Joseph’s rockin’ the boat!” Hahaha!
