Remember when The Screamies were cute and funny and I actually encouraged Carter to do them because I loved them so much? Well, eventually he grew tired of doing them and moved onto a new trick. The Screamies became a distant memory. Until these past few weeks. The Screamies were resurrected and they are back with a vengeance. They are back and they are far from cute. Here's why.
Carter now does The Screamies when he's bored. And they're really, really mean Screamies. Vicious, even. Carter does The Screamies when he no longer wants to partake in whatever activity he's currently involved in. Be it the swing, the walker, the Bumbo, blanket time, etc. Fifteen minutes in and he's a bored Screamies mess.
The Screamies also rear their ugly head when Mr. Impatient is sitting in his high chair waiting for his morning fruit and oatmeal. I can't wait to capture this on film/video and show you how the son-of-a-gun wrinkles up his little nose, closes his eyes, clenches his little fists and shrieks. He's such a little stinker, I can't even stand it. And I won't lie. Sometimes, we have Screamies contests. We try to see who can scream louder.
Hey, I never said I was perfect. I wonder what the neighbors are thinking...
