The Life of a 1 Year Old

I heard that mom wrote on the blog that I was being a little bum when I woke up at 2AM crying. I was trying to communicate to her that my boots and bars were annoying the heck out of me. I tolerate it pretty good most nights but sometimes I just need a break from them! Is that bad? I head down to Vancouver in April to see Dr. Alverez. She is going to check the progress of my club foot and while I am there I will ask her if it's okay I get a break from them once in a while.

I can't sleep with blankets because they would get all tangled up in the bar that is between my two feet. Though I love sleeping on my side it is not the most comfortable when you got your foot at a 40 degree angle. I know I have to suck it up for just another couple of years but I just have to vent a little.

"No Parker, don't touch!" is a very common saying around here. I can't touch the stove, stereo, computer or anything remotely interesting. Are there any one-year olds out there experiencing the same thing?

Oh! I better go...I hear mommy saying, "Parker, no touch!"

What a bummer, huh Parker? Hang in there; it will get better soon you'll be controlling all sorts of buttons.

Yes Parker, I know exactly what you mean!!! This is your cousin Liam and I often get told the same things!!! But what I do to get Mom and especially Dad (because he gives in more frequently than Mom) is I have these temper tantrums where I throw myself on the ground and cry non-stop until they give in or they distract me with some other cool thing. Try it! It's pretty effective!
