Carson... for those of you that don't know Carson very well, he is my "strong-willed" son... and that is probably putting it nicely, but hopefully gives you an idea of his personality. I think he stood in line twice for the stubborn genes. I love him dearly and he can be just as sweet as he is bull-headed, unfortunately it has been a while since I have seen that "sweet" side.
He started school last week and is now in the 1st grade. I am not sure why a ... "I am too cool for you" attitude has to accompany 1st grade, but it has for him and he has been a snot ever since school started. Here are 2 conversations that I had with him today... there are plenty more, but these were too good not to share.
Carson asked me "When is dad taking us fishing?"... "Maybe when you decide to start acting better" was my response. He then followed that up with "I CAN'T DO THAT! WHEN DAD RAISED ME HE RAISED ME AS A NAUGHTY BOY... I CAN'T BE NICE!!!"
Later he was being his pain in the butt self again and I asked him what the deal was with the attitude problem that he has developed since school started... his response "I didn't get it in the 1st grade mom, I've always had it, even when I was in your tummy... that's why I was kicking you!"
Good thing he's SO cute... huh? :)
