Something is going on with Mister. How do I know? He’s clinging to my pant leg aand whining, “Mum! Mum!” All day. For the third day in a row. I can’t see any new teeth. What the hell?
When he’s going through one of these “stages,” I ask thing like, “Are you wearing your cranky pants today?”
Or when he’s jumping up and down and making noises like a monkey, I ask, “Are you wearing your silly pants today?”
His “pants” change for different behaviors. I guess that is easier than calling him cranky or silly like it is a character trait.
