Toddler Logic

2013-06-17 15.44.47

Let me take a moment to tell you what this innocent-looking little child just did.

To set the stage: we’ve got 3 kids, my wife and I.  A teen, an infant, and the 2-year-and-2-month-old pictured above, Victor.  My wife is a big believer in the power of breastfeeding (I’m a fan as well).  The infant, as infants do, breastfeeds pretty darn often.  Mr. 2yr+2mo eats plenty of food, but generally gets in on the breastfeeding after we wake up, midday, and when we go to bed.  Kind of a bedtime snack.  Sometimes he watches his baby brother nursing and wants to get in on the fun, but to make sure he doesn’t ruin his appetite for solid food, he has his schedule.  3 times daily max, though if he wants less, that’s fine… have to make sure he’s got the opportunity to self-wean when he’s ready.

Anyhow.

Tonight, his little brother was nursing.  Victor decided to test the waters and see if mom would let him get his bedtime milk early.

“Mom mom mom mom,” he chattered, as he climbed up to horn in on little brother’s milktime.

“Not until we go night-night,” mom said.

“It’s night!  It’s night!” Victor replied.

2 years old and he’s trying to cut his teeth on logical arguments.

Ohboy.  The next couple of decades are going to be VERY interesting.
