My two year old son, Connor, has become a real challenge. Extremely energetic, curious, daring, and bold, Connor is into everything he shouldn't be and keeps us on our toes. I recently had a break down in our pediatrician's office. "I'm tired!" I told him. "He's so hard! He doesn't slow down!" My daughter, Molly, was incredibly easy by comparison. She'd sit and play quietly with her babies, blocks, and "read" books at this age. Thankfully, our doctor gave some great advice about discipline and raising boys, and I feel like we are on the right track.
There's one time of day that I really cherish with this energetic wild man of mine. Two or three times a day, when Connor himself has gotten tired, we sit down for "buddy and milk." Buddy is his treasured blanket and he likes to sit on my lap, drink milk, and read books. It's the best part of my day.
I've said it more than once, but I feel so blessed to get incredible book recommendations from Miss Nancy and her wonderful staff at The Storybook Shoppe. It's clear that they read all the reviews, read the books when they come in, and know just what to recommend. I was in the other day and Miss Bonnie recommended "The Troublemaker" by Lauren Costillo.
In this simple but beautifully illustrated hardcover book, a little boy is bored so he steals his sister's treasured rabbit. When his mother makes him return it, his favorite toys start to disappear. Who is making all the mischief? You'll have to find out! It's incredibly cute and teaches a quick lesson on not taking what isn't yours. (Without being overly preachy!) Taking toys from his sister is something that Connor does (though don't all two year olds?) and I liked this message.
