my kid....

....never has tantrums. ever.

....has yet to steal a sip of a beverage that is inappropriate for young children

stealing a sip
....doesn't watch any television or videos. so he certainly doesn't yell out "Po!" {Pororo} and "Mouse!" {Mickey} when certain programs appear on the television screen

....has never happily sported a ponytail on the top of his head

ponytail 1 a stickler for following the rules

rule follower
....didn't have to be taken home early from Vacation Bible School for poor behavior

....would never lick a rock. that's just weird and gross

a rock tastes like this
....only plays with what are considered to be boy things.

pink stroller always clean, fully clothed, and wouldn't dare wear his good church pants in the dirt

dirt 1
....doesn't have a mother that would soap up his extremely long hair, call it a "si hawk", take a photo of it with her phone and then share it with friends on Face*book.

si hawk in the tub
....has never sucked on a nuk in the tub

bathtub si hawk
....acts like an angel in church. always.

....definitely wouldn't be caught munching on ice from the beer keg at a baseball game tailgate

first tailgate
....hasn't had his first kiss yet. he is much too young to smooch

first kiss 1
....has never thrown anything in the toilet

....poses and smiles for vacation photos without complaint

top of the lighthouse
....never makes a mess

wipes 1
....doesn't have to be told 100 times a day not to touch the decorative items in the living room

....always happily shares his toys

playing nice
....didn't learn the word "no" last week and therefore doesn't say it often

....has never.ever thrown his hands up in the air and yelled "ice cream!" while smiling and shaking with delight

ice cream place
....would never shove way too much of a special treat into his mouth

ice cream mouth
....has excellent table manners. obviously.

Yep, that's my kid.

And I love every perfectly messy, unpredictable, funny, crazy moment with him.

Life is good.
