Man, this kid is a pain. NO, I SAID NO! MOMMY SAID NO! is my new refrain. He won't listen and is, let's say inquisitive about everything. While he's challenging as a son, he is just plain traumatic to have at the lake. Every move he makes seems to end in the mind's eye with him careening off the rock wall or drowning in the cold water. I wish he could see how scared I am for him...maybe then he would be more careful. I wonder where all that trepidation from the day before at the Greek carnival scampered off to!

Just yesterday, Elena looked at me quizzically and said, "Mommy, why do you think God gave us such a wild one for a boy?"

I love Elena's comment. It shows how much 'ownership' she feels for that little brother of hers - it's very touching.
