Just Kidding

Another post on Simmy. He has become quite the kidder and I am not laughing.
  • He often tags adults and says "You're it! Just kidding" To the adult it looks like they have been hit by a snotty kid because more likely than not they did not understand what he yelled.
  • When walking past strangers he will yell "Hey you person!" in an obnoxious voice. He may even call them a name like, oh, you know, Tony Hawk. The people he yells at are caught off guard because they are not expecting to be approached by a stranger nor do they understand why he is calling them weird names.
  • Just now, we were walking in a parking lot while a big van waited for us to pass. After we passed Simeon let go and "pretended"to dart back in front of the van that was already moving. Thankfully the man was watching him enough to stop. Ugh!!
I am always left shrugging my shoulders, apologizing, and scolding and believe me he got a big scolding after the van one. He is always laughing.

What a little stinker! At least he is having fun and continuously strengthening your mothering abilities!

I'm laughing! Except not at the van part of course. I love that he is trying to explore his sense of humor... his good judgment will come later. I would just smile and ask the strangers, "isn't he silly?" Then you can give Simmy some fun ideas of more socially acceptable interactions. Be careful not to dampen his cute little spark! :)

Hilarious (although not for you). We love our little--I mean BIG BOY--Simmy. Maybe next year they'll be in the same primary class?

Little turkey! The other day, Peter was messing around with Caitlin and he called her a name saying, "You water bottle!" Caitlin stopped, gave him an incredulous look, and he totally busted up laughing. Who knows what goes on in their heads...
