Like Father, Like Son, Like Son

Look!  Over Yonder!  Can you see it?  No? Well you must not be looking hard enough because it is right in front on your face! 
We have reached a new level of Boyhood at the Arnold House.  I have a sneaking suspicion it has been here all along, hiding in the shadows...
My sweet baby boy that I thought I could count on to always hang with Mommy, looking all cute and yummy snuggly, CLEAN has turned 2 and would rather run with Daddy and Big Brother getting dirty, sweaty, wild and carefree.  Welcome to the world of constant mud holes, sand gritty hardwood floors, backyard peeing (and the occasional peeing in the wrong places), rough and tumble wrestling, ALL THINGS BOY!! 
We have made a few House Rules that are stressed above all others.  Number 1: You always ask an adult before going out the garage or front doors. (back door is ok)  Number 2: No naked people at the dinner/lunch/breakfast table!  (yes we had to make a rule about this one)
The best example I can give of the difference between boys and girls: I knocked over Berkeley's new bottle of bubbles accidently today.  The girl I am expected him to cry over spilled bubbles.  Nope! He jumped in the puddle and started laughing as it splashed everywhere....All boy I tell ya.  Hang on tight it is going to be a fun ride I can already tell.  And I am loving every muddy twist and turn so far.
