The Upside Down world of kids

My son is almost 3yrs and 4 months old. I feel like he understands more and more each day. But he wants to do things his way. Which is almost always the other way we expect him to do it. Practically like he is living in an upside-down world. That's one explanation for all of... Continue Reading →
