mr. independent

Hayden is trying to do so many things on his own.
In fact, he objects to any help we offer him.  So instead of fight him, we just let him do things his way.

Including dressing himself.  He did pretty good with the shirt...it is on backwards.

BUT, he put his whole body in one leg hole of his pajama shorts.

And we just let him run around like that...ha!  IT was so funny.

We did fix it before bed time.

That has always been Emily! I used to explain myself and her looks when she went to preschool...and eventually it was just understood :) haha! He's too funny...it's good to let them do things themselves...but can be so hard!

Layla does the same thing! She always wants to do things by herself! "I do it Mommy!" is heard nearly ever day!

Mollie is trying to do these things too!! It's so funny seeing her do it, but she will not let us help her, she is independent too!

He is too cute! Eli does the exact same thing with his pj's sometimes too!

I love it! The preschool teacher side thinks it is great for his independence and problem solving skills, the mom side of me thinks it is a fantastic photo op! I love a win win situation!
