There was one spot along the bay that you could see starfish when the tide was out. We went one day but the tide was too high, so we went back a second time hoping to spot some starfish. And we did!
There were tons of them hiding among the rocks. We thought Levi would think they were so cool.
He wasn’t too sure. He would touch them…
and hold them very reluctantly for about one second. Then he would drop the poor starfish back into the water and move onto other things like climbing on rocks.
It probably didn’t help that he was in a particularly grouchy mood that day. He had to sit with his daddy and have a little talk. Oh my. This parenting and discipline stuff is hard work. The past few weeks Levi has been showing us a new side of himself. The word “no” and a lot of whining has been frequently heard around here. It is like he knows that something is about to change in his world of full attention from mom and dad! 🙂 We, of course, still love him to pieces…whining and all. And I think that sometimes God uses those tough parenting days to teach us just as much as we are trying to teach little Levi.
