Quick Ryan Story...
As you all know, my wife is 9 months pregnant. Her actual due date is Tomorrow. So, bearing that in mind, picture the scenario: Our street is closed and we have to park around the block. It's 98 degrees and the middle of the day. My son doesn't sleep. It's time to go to playgroup.
After finally coaxing Ryan the block and a half to the car, he refuses to get into his car seat. Lots and lots of negotiation fail. Alesha gets to the point where she tells Ryan that she is not happy with this behavior, and she is going to count to 3. Ryan knows what this means. Get to 3, TIMEOUT! Ryan HATES timeouts.
Sensing Mommy's frustration, our 2 year old son tilts his head ever so slightly, bats his doe eyes and says,
"But Mama, I'm a genius!"
And somehow I got blamed.
