Ah, the joys of parenting...

So now that Caden is getting older and talking more, we get a lot more "back talk" from him. I definitely expected this, but what I didn't expect was for most of it to be so funny! It's impossible to discipline while laughing your head off. A couple of Caden's finest moments lately:

I must pound it into his head that he needs to be nice to everyone, because he brought me his toy motorcycle and in a whisper said "he sleeping"...and proceeded to demand, also in a whisper, that "he need kiss" and "he need hug" and wouldn't leave me alone until I complied. Well, I guess I know what ranks high on the priority list.

One morning right after breakfast while Grandma Edwards is having a good conversation with Caden about his favorite subject of fishing she asks "Hey Caden, where's your daddy?". Out of nowhere and with a huge smile on his face he announces "He pooping!!". Apparently, that is a proud moment at our house.

The other day, I was discipling caden about something and it apparently made him mad. He must have felt that the finger pointing and telling me "no, no" was insufficient to convey his point, so while super hero punching the air in my direction he yelled "knuckers, knuckers!!!" (knuckles). Apparently, his super power is "knuckles". Good one, Caders, good one.

I LOVE this stage! It's so funny! And I agree it's so hard to discipline when they're that funny.
He sounds adorable!
