So Aiden get’s kinda cranky sometimes when you try and buckle him into his car seat. I thought it was just the terrible twos but I have figured out that he has a routine that he goes through before he will let you buckle his seat belt. First he sits on his seat, then he stands up and leans across the seat in front of him to push the play button on the DVD player (while the car is off). Then he looks over his shoulder into the trunk. Next he reaches up to grab the “oh sh** handle” (what’s the real name for that?). Finally he must push the unbuckle button 3 times and then you can help him to buckle. And he better have his monkey nearby.
Try interrupting Aiden while he is in the middle of his routine with anything other than candy and you will feel the wrath of Aiden. His name means fiery – it all makes sense now.
At least there is someone in the family that will make sure the stove is off.
