. . . Especially after too-little sleep, Elias is quite a handful these days. When I have the energy, I can laugh. I decided that ‘d better write all the things down, so that they are more funny and less annoying. Like yesterday, he locked Amina in the bathroom. He’s getting pretty good at doing that these days. And yesterday he threw two balls down the toilet, the second of those being extremely deliberate. We have a squatty potty, so when a ball goes down, it goes down! And it’s quite an operation to get it back and clean again.

Jacob and I have started to make a list about the things that are always “no-no’s”. Training needs to be a little bit more structured and deliberate!

  • eating Momma’s vaseline
  • throwing food
  • biting
  • hitting other kids
