the will of will

This little boy changed my life all over again when he came into my world on April Fool's Day, 2008.

 I should have known by the date of his birthday, just how feisty he would be. 

Will was mine and Matt's first child together and such a special time in our lives. 
Matt and I were still getting to know each other, and now we got to do it with this amazing little guy in our world too. 
It was pretty easy. Pretty simple. {aside from the short time when I didn't realize my child was starving, not screaming from colic.}

And then he turned two.

And promptly started throwing fits. {this is at storytime} Who protests storytime?

And decided who needs to sleep in a crib?{or a bed at all for that matter}?

                                                                   Not him.

 Now my little guy is a screaming, tantrum-throwing, chocolate-chip demanding, two year old. And, oh, he is giving this mama a SRS. run for her money. 

So, I am taking one moment at a time and remembering that, this too shall pass. And sticking to my guns because I refuse. ReFuSe to have a child that reigns over me.

Two will pass. Then we shall be on to our next challenge. I have a feeling Will's strength of will is just beginning. 

I <3 you kid.
