This one

is going to give me a run for my money!


Here is how he came to eating his cereal with a " serving spoon". As I was getting their breakfast on the table this morning, Nicolo finds a spoon on the floor (not sure why one was on the floor...haha). I attempted to give him a clean one from the dishwasher as I took the dirty one out of his hand. He threw a fit, so I told him if he wanted to have a fit he could go in the other room. I laid the clean spoon on the table and walked away. He preceded to take the clean spoon off the table and throw it in the dishwasher. Then I tried to give him back the dirty spoon from the sink (which I secretly swapped with a clean spoon to try an appease him). He said, "NO!", so I told him to just get whatever spoon he wanted. He went to the dishwasher and found the biggest spoon we owned. Then he ate his whole bowl of cereal with said spoon and spilled a good bit of it down the front of him.

This one is definitely going to give me a run for my money.

This is what Francesco thought of the whole ordeal.

  1. This is SO adorable. Tyler is the EXACT same way! I love Ciccio's expression about the whole thing - priceless! Haha

  2. Oh man. He and Ana could be best buds.

    I've have given up fighting on certain things with Ana. It's just so not worth it. She's got a total mind of her own.

  3. LOve HaTE relationship with growing up.

    So cute one minutes and such a handful the next

  4. That is really funny and I am glad I am not alone. I don't know who is going to be harder for me Violet or Ruby because both are so strong willed.

  5. Uh yea. I have one of those for sure. We always say she'll be the one to throw the first house party when she's older.

  6. Hmmmm? Stubborn, singular of purpose, passionately emphatic...? Who does that sound like? I wonder....

  7. I am convinced that they often get stubborn and defensive about the silliest little things because it's all they know to control. Jack and I went around and around last night about a cup I'm not even sure exists!

  8. Love these shots. Priceless. I've got one as well that is, well let's say "strong-willed..." (to the point of my pulling my hair out!) But she has a spirit and vitality that makes everyday a beautiful adventure. So, here's to beautiful adventures (and maintaining our mama sanity!!)
