"Be Patient"

This weekend, Miles was sitting in his highchair screaming because Mommy was not getting his cereal and pears ready quite fast enough. I realized that Mason (an incredibly impatient 2-year-old) was singing the "Be Patient" song to Miles. This was so funny and ironic to me in several ways: 1) Mason is never patient. 2) Miles is rarely impatient. 3) I had no idea that Mason listened to me when I sing it to him. 4) I had no idea that Mason knew the words to the song (see below)!
Be Patient. Be Patient. Don't be in such a hurry.
When you get impatient you only start to worry.
Remember, remember, that God is patient too.
Just think of all the times when others have to wait for you.

Mason also tells Miles to "stop screaming Miles" when Miles starts "talking" (which is more like a scream to get noticed). I guess most 2-year-olds prefer to tell others what to do rather than actually follow rules themselves.

On another note, we have quite a busy week. Tomorrow we are going to the Dallas Arboretum to see the beautiful fall flowers, pumpkins, and petting zoo. I have a follow-up appointment with Miles' GI doctor scheduled for Wednesday morning. I am going to push to have him tested for the milk allergy before I commit to any further plan of action. Thursday will be Miles' first day at school (Mother's Day Out). Mommy will finally get some alone time. I am not sure I will know what to do with all my free time!! I'll be posting pictures (from the Arboretum, not the doctor visit) and updates as time allows.
