Should I Be Worried?

posted in: Parenting 24 comments

Miles clearly wants to be that bad ass boy no girls are supposed to date.  It seems he is always trying to steal sips of beer when anyone leaves a can or bottle on a table and God help me he has tasted beer.  Some people did not believe me when I told them my toddler would take their bottle if they left it lying around.  Well, he took a big swig before they could get to him.  And he liked it.  He is like a little Homer Simpson now and actually says “mmm…beer”.  I kid you not.  He doesn’t have a million words or anything and that is in his small vocabulary.

We saw it coming though – I posted about it last summer…

Miles Wants Beer 2009

Lately he also looks like he is getting a little high in pictures and I can’t help but laugh.  He just thinks it is funny to put sticks and crayons and pens and anything like that in his mouth.  We grownups are the sickos that laugh because the way he holds these items reminds us of some things I am so not yet prepared to really talk to my kids about.  (If you don’t know my oldest is only 3 so no, we haven’t brought up the subject of marijuana or ciggies yet).   Yes, I am one of the sickos.  I think this is hilarious.

Reason to Worry?

Moms, guard your daughters.  It seems I am raising a very good looking bad influence.  Could it be he already suffers from the middle child syndrome and is rebelling ;)?

    Hilarious. We have the exact same problem with D, particularly when it comes to beer. Oh well. Maybe this way he won’t go wild when he gets to college??

      We can hope right. I didn’t want to say too much but I suppose I can spill the beans…he LOVES beer. You have to watch it no matter where you put it. He will climb up things for it. Best to just chug it and hope you don’t puke or give him a sip. Oops did I say that ;)

    This is awesome. That last photo of Miles is hysterical. He is totally that Southern bad boy that will charm you but lead you down a bad path and break your heart. So so funny and cute too.

      SO the southern badboy. His hair too – he looks like a frat boy already. Dear Lord I am in trouble!

  • April 15, 2010 Jenny

      Funy and scary! I so want to have a nice young man who treats the ladies right and doesn’t keep me up at night. I suppose my mom is laughing as my siblings and I kept her up at night a lot!

    Watch out… this is gateway behavior to running with the bad boy crowd. Before you know it he’ll be idolizing Oscar the Grouch and the Cookie Monster.

    • April 16, 2010 Brittany

      I love it – gateway behavior. That rocks. Right now he idolizes elmo and dora but you’re right. First Oscar the grouch…then Eminem!

    Can I post pictures in comments?

    I thought you would get a kick out of this one. I think D and Miles are destined to meet and be buddies.

      That’s awesome. We have a couple of Miles like that too. Ross actually asked if kids could drink Non Alcoholic beer. Um…NO!

  • April 16, 2010 Liza

    That is hilarious. Especially because he’s dressed like a Vegas high roller in daytime. Like he’s going to fling his cig/joint on the ground and go make some form of not-so-decent proposal to the lady across the room he’s had his eye on. I love it.

    Miles is so cute! Love the pic of him with the “pretend” cigarrette!

  • April 17, 2010 Melissa

    What a cutie! That’s hilarious. My husband is impressed by the fact that your kiddo already knows how to hold a joint, lol. Thanks for sharing!

    What an adorable little boy your Miles is! At least he has good taste in beer too! I am a new follower from FFF at the Mom Bloggers Club, so glad to have found your great blog! Hope you have a wonderful week!

    dude… ok so then lets be honest about the whole “coffee table eyebrow gash” story… it was a bar fight wasn’t it? :)

    he rocks.

    Lijah HAS to smell our beer, he really wants to taste it but we only let him sniff it, so now he is obsessed with beer sniffing! A friend of mine would put water in empty beer bottles so her son would be satisfied when they had company over and not harass the guests. Hmmm toddler with glass bottle or toddler with beer breath? Parenting 101 didn’t cover that.
