Rebel Yell

Logan is a great kid. He is so well behaved (most of the time) and happy and healthy. I'm a lucky mommy. But sometimes...

You see, I talked to Grandpa Doug (my dad) last night on the phone and he said something that I got to thinking about. He said, "You were a quiet kid and Logan is too." He meant it as a compliment. Now usually, Logan is somewhat quiet. He doesn't make too much noise, unless he's at home and we're provoking him by making a lot f noise ourselves.

But all that has changed this weekend. We went to the mall to get a banana cream pie Blizzard from the Dairy Queen in the food court. It's the only Dairy Queen we can find that still makes that particular kind of Blizzard and it's ooooooooh soooooo gooooood.

Anyway, while we were enjoying our cold treat, Logan was sitting in his stroller drinking out of his sippy cup, playing with Anna Banana and looking at all the people. When we got comfortable and started talking about "adult" things, Logan could see that we weren't paying much attention to him anymore. This did not bode well.

He immediately let out an ear piercing scream. You see, Logan has learned that he is the king. And when his loyal subjects (namely us) are not paying attention to him, something must be done. Banging his hand on the nearest hard surface wasn't working, but a rebel yell works every time.

All the way through the mall and out to the car he decided that screaming at the top of his lungs would be great fun and keep the attention that he was seeking. Good thing he's cute.
