Oh, so sweet. Look at that little toddler sitting there. Adorable.
Do not be deceived.
Sure, he looks so innocent with his chubby little hands in his lap. But behind those wide eyes lies a cunning little mind hatching all kinds of plans for mayhem.
Don’t be silly, I know he isn’t saying full sentences yet, but I know. Trust me.
In less than two years, he has learned the “I’m not touching you” manoeuvre. A recent addition to his repertoire is the tried and true “I didn’t actually knock your block tower down, but the block I am holding might have been involved” technique.
What has that got to do with this picture, you ask?
On this particular morning, he was irritated with his 5 year old brother’s redirection and threw his plastic bridge across the room.
“No throwing,” I said.
“No,” he replied and promptly put himself on the step for a penalty. Misbehaved AND removed sibling’s chance at retribution all in one move. That kid is an evil genius.
