This kid….we were checking out the grocery store the other day and our cashier said, “Wow. he is SO patient!”
And I looked at Kellan, who was content and just happily watching everything that was going on, and I was just like, “You know, he really is.”
And I’m really not. Like, reaaalllllly not. Nor is Tim.
Recessive patience gene?
I’m not sure if this is typical 13-almost-14-month-old behavior but the weekend, Kellan woke up at 6:30, had breakfast, played, fought a nap – we tried to nap at 9 and I gave up around 9:35 because he kept yelling “dinosaur!”
So, we walked over to the neighborhood park to see the dinosaur and play. I thought maybe he would fall asleep in the stroller, but he didn’t, so we decided to run errands, hoping he would fall asleep in the car.
We finally made it home around 12:45 and he crashed. We were begging him to stay awake most of the way home because if he falls asleep in the car, there is no picking him up and transferring him to a bed. Once he wakes up from a car nap, be it five minutes or forty five, he is UP.
But, all morning long he was awake and happy, everywhere we went. Zero complaint. Zero fuss.
What a great kid. I am so, so thankful for him.
We are off on another secret mission today. To be revealed eventually….
Until then, check out my latest post on What to Expect? It’s about how Tim forgot to feed Kellan. Definitely worth an extra few minutes.
