5 Seconds to Meltdown...4...3...

As most of you who have met Matthew know, he is a very calm, content little guy. But he does have one moment of the day where you need to very quickly proceed with what you're doing to make him happy. If not you will bear witness to a 0 to 60 meltdown in about 5 seconds.

That time of the day occurs after bathtime. You can take all the time in the world lotioning him up and playing little games like grabbing his feet. But once those pajamas are on his little body you have about 5 minutes to get downstairs and in the kitchen and make him a bottle.

He's learned over time that pajamas mean a bottle and bedtime and you better not deviate from that.

The following is a picture tonight of me testing the patience of a boy who has been in his pajamas for 4 and a half minutes and sees no sign of a bottle coming near him. I tried the new hat we got as part of his spring clothes and he looked so cute I had to take a picture. But first we had to come downstairs. And then I had to find the camera. And then the first picture didn't show both eyes. You get the picture. Or actually you will as soon as you finish reading this sentence.


But you have to admit...he does look cute in the hat.
