My 3 Year Old Demands His Independence

Sullivan, in stark contrast to Graydon, is a do-it-himself kind of guy. He wants to pour his own juice, he wants to get his own Pop Tarts, he wants to wipe his own butt, he wants to turn on Dora or Diego all by himself.

In fact, his most often used expression these days is "I do it myself, poppa!" followed closely by "I win!"

And he's gotten astonishingly good at manipulating the Tivo to get his programs on. It might be time to turn on the Kid Controls to protect our recordings because, while he may think he knows what he's doing, he sometimes just keeps pressing buttons until the right thing happens.

But boy, oh boy is he a proud little boy when he does succeed.
