my thoughts on motherhood, kids, books and stuff

Boys Will Be Boys

During our stay at Long Beach, Wa, my mom and I were sitting in our beach chairs chatting while the kids played in the large sandbox outside the RV. Kai snuck up behind us and snagged my mom’s Diet Coke and ran off with it.

It was mostly water by that time so we let him think we didn’t know that he had taken it and he carried it over to show the nearly three year old neighbor girl that was playing in the sand with him.

As I watched him guzzle his prize while he squatted down by his friend I noticed he would take a big gulp and then he would strain as if he was trying to fill his diaper. I thought this was weird behavior for him as I continued to watch him for a few minutes.

Finally after a couple of minutes he erupted with the enormous belch he had been trying for.

He turned to the little girl and grinned from ear to ear.

She gave him a disgusted little snort and turned her body away from him as he let out a little chuckle.

I can only imagine the tricks he will come up with to charm the girls when he is a teenager!

    That was pretty funny. He was so proud of himself and kept trying to do it longer and louder and she was NOT impressed.

    that's so cute.

  • Sounds about like the reaction I get from Yeimy. Are these behaviors nature or nurture? I'm guessing it's hard wired boy programming. I love your kids stories whimmers!
