I am so proud of my son, JD! No, really, I am. But sometimes I just want to crawl into a hole. Last night, again, JD said what was on his mind, just a little too loud.
To make a short story long, JD has had a rough week.
Tuesday morning was H-E-double L!
He was NOT happy about waking up – that is an understatement! He woke up as a possessed, angry devil child. He was totally out of control. Instead of losing it with him, I chose to leave him naked on the bathroom floor, go lock myself in the baby’s room and get him dressed before dealing any more with Damien JD.
Damien JD followed me and was outside the baby’s room, screaming and banging on the door – the whole while, I’m saying, “I want nice JD, not mean JD!”
I guess it worked because as soon as I opened the bedroom door to come out, nice JD jumped up, smiled at me and said, “Hi, Mommy!”
JD has not been much better at day care this week. (He went to the “principal’s office” twice – he’s only 3 years old!) So for an incentive, Wednesday night before bed and all Thursday morning, I told him that if he’s a good boy, he can go to “Mall-Mart” and get candy.
“If you wake up from nap before your friends, are you going to kick them to get up or are you going to lay on your mat and be a good boy so you can go to Wal-Mart?”
“I be a good boy, Mommy.”
And would you believe that it worked! His teachers were “Hallelujah!” They were amazed that he remained laying on his cot, while other classmates were telling him to get up. Hallelujah for Wal-Mart!
As we were leaving Wal-Mart, a heavy-set woman rode by wearing a tube top.
“MOMMY, HER HAS NO SHIRT ON!”

Tonight, if JD is a good boy, he’s going to a football game with Daddy! Sure hope it works!
Have a GREAT weekend!
