He was ANGELIC!
I had to take him with me to a board meeting at a restaurant.
It was a legitimate meeting that I could not blow off or just get up and leave if ANGEL FACE decided he'd had enough.
So I prepped him.
Before we left,
I told him where we were going and that I expected him to be good.
I defined "good" for him.
"You're going to sit in your chair and eat chicken and lettuce. You aren't going to get down and run around."
He sat solemnly in his car seat as I reviewed the expectations and what good looked like.
He was positively PERFECT!
He sat in his high chair and ate chicken fingers and salad.
He looked at books and drew on the financials....
for an HOUR and A HALF!
Okay - so I admit that half way through lunch when I offered him the kiddy cup with water, he said, "No. Coke." and I gave it to him.
Also, because he had eaten his entire lunch, I did give him bites of apple pie and ice cream.
But seriously - 90 minutes of sitting quietly and eating, drawing and reading!
Later, I checked in with his sister to see how the night had gone.
"He was a DEMON!" she proclaimed.
"No! What happened?"
Evidently, they went to dinner at another family's house and within FIVE minutes of their arrival, he managed to locate a Blue Sharpie and draw all over a wall and HIS FACE.
(This is the next day....after a bath and a shower)Still, isn't he the cutest DEMON you have ever seen?
I asked him, "Do we color on our faces with marker?'
"No, we don't color on our faces. That is naughty!"
