The kid has it all.
He’s serious. I call him a “deep thinker”.
He’s quirky. I call him charismatic and captivating.
He’s bull-headed. I call him determined.
He’s funny. I call him witty.
He’s so DRAMATIC. I call him riveting.
This is a prime example….
Attack pup on the loose. Yep, I don’t have a photo of the next scene, because I had to rescue Ty from said pup. In no time, Echo (our pup), was on top of Ty licking and scratching and just getting plain ‘ole excited. You know how pups are, right? Well, apparently, it was NOT fun for Ty. He immediately burst into tears.
At this point, I tell him (because I’m into tough love and all) to “get tough”. I go on to explain that we live in the country and dogs are gonna jump on you…yadda yadda yadda. I finish off by telling him if he can’t take the heat, go in and take a nap. He’s obviously tired. It’s not really like him to wail loudly over a pup jumping on him. He is an animal lover, after all.
This was him during our one-sided conversation.
Usually, in instances like these, it’s best to tease him a bit or tell him a couple of jokes, which I proceeded to do.
Slowly, but surely, this magnificent and warm-hearted little boy started to forget the drama.
Just look what that one word does for our bull-headed boy.
And the world was right again.
Be still my heart.
