"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self."

One last post on BigBoy and then I will move on. I don't want to give the impression that he is a generally bad-behaving little boy. The majority of the time he is a polite, respectful, well-behaved child. It's just that sometimes he hits these long stretches where any little thing becomes huge. Whining and crying to watch cartoons for 20 minutes straight even after being told no and eventually put in time-out? Check. Begging for a toy car for the entire time you're at a store? Check. It's this sort of thing. He's not throwing or hitting things. Not really talking back or doing things deliberately against my wishes. He just will. not. back. down. Somedays one battle just rolls into the next. Anyway, I just felt out of respect to him I should clarify.
