I am convinced that baby-number-two is destined to be bad. It took Porgie a few years to figure out how to be really bad. At the tender age of one, Izzy already has everything figured out.
My little guy is bad. He slaps, pushes, and pulls on other people. He steals toys. He opens the refrigerator door. He unscrews the lid on his sippy cup. He takes his diaper off. He plays in the dog's water bowl. He pulls garbage out of the trash can. He splashes in the toilet water.
Although some of these offenses are typical toddler behavior, some of them are learned behaviors from his big sister - namely the pushing, pulling, and slapping of other people. Izzy has become quite an aggressive little guy. While nursing him, he beats the crap out of me. Seriously, I walk away feeling like a battered woman. The child is relentless.
But when I look at his little face, all is forgiven...
