Eli has been in a Mood lately. Or a Funk. A Snit? Whatever it is, it had better be a Phase. And it's causing Mama to want to Drink Heavily and Take a Vacation.
Fortunately, in the midst of arguing, talking back, disobeying and being generally cantankerous, he is also saying some funny, funny things. A few of my favorites:
"You better change that attitude, Mom. That's a bad attitude." (it often is)
"It's the law, bud." See also: "It's the law, bud. Opa said so." (his reason for whatever he's doing that he shouldn't be, or in order to get his way)
"That's not for you, Mom. It's yucky. It has sugar in it." (his reason for needing to take my coffee for himself)
We have to laugh, mostly so that we don't go crazy.
And he's cute. Good thing.
