    My son is crazy, he is four months away from turning two but he has already started the craziness. When he swan dives off furniture if you take your eyes off of him for one second, I have to wonder if he is going to survive being a toddler.:razz:
    He has already started throwing himself down on the floor when he doesn't get what he wants, we haven't had an incident at a grocery store yet but I have a feeling it is coming.
    THe worst part is trying not to laugh when he does certain things.

    Don't let him watch Mary Poppins and then leave an umbrella anywhere he can find it.
    That's jumping off the roof material.

    If he is related to me he is going to do it anyways!
    That is the problem, I remember when I was younger and all the kids were here for the summer my parents would go to the ER sometimes twice a day. I of course wanted to be like my brother's and would do the same stupid shit like jump off roofs for no reason.
    My parents pool for one is close enough to the house to where you can jump off the roof into the pool.

    The only reason their cute is so you don't strangle them in their sleep.

    You kidding? It's so you don't strangle them when they're awake. They're quiet when they're asleep.

    You're probably gonna wanna curb that right now before it starts getting too bad. Take what you want from him..analyze it...and find out how YOUR actions will benefit what YOU want him to do. Most of the time, I use positive reinforcement vs negative reinforcement. Focus on all the good things that he does rather than the bad things and emphasize them so that he sees that he will get attention from you by doing good rather than bad. If he sees that hes getting attention whether it be negative or positive from doing bad..he will continue to do those bad things to get the attention.

    PS: This tactic works on adults that act like children as well :)

    Cute kid. I wish you well in raising him up to be a fine American. Who knows, he may do something extremely important with his life. He'll do that anyway when he makes you a Grandma but maybe he'll turn out to be a rocket scientist or something equally as cool. Good luck with the parent chores -
