Two years old.

This is what we call the "silent tantrum." It's like nonviolent resistance for babies. When told that you have to leave a fun activity and go with your parent(s), go completely limp (or "go boneless," in Knuffle Bunny-parlance) so as to make moving your small body very difficult.

When this happens, onlookers sometimes think that Joe is just, you know, lying down on the ground to take a rest. Haha. As though Joe ever rests?! We know better. This is Joe's way of saying, "No way. I'm not going!"

We're usually just grateful, at this point, that he's chosen the quiet form of tantrum, rather than the loud type. That type leaves no room for doubt.

It's hard being two.
