1.....2.....,




Craig and I have found the infamose big "1,2,3" to be very effective with Carter, our 3 1/2 year old. The ever looming thret is that he will get his hair pulled if we ever get to three, so he never lets us get past 1,2. Today I asked him to put his shoes on, and asked him again a moment later, still no result. I resorted to counting, almost subconciously. Like always, he jumped up on 2 and started putting his shoes on. A moment later I hear to the tune of "once there was a snowman", "Almost got my hair pulled, hair pulled, hair pulled. Almost got my hair pulled, pulled right up".

That is so funny! That is what works best for Will too. As soon as we start counting he does what ever he was asked to do.
