First let me introduce (for those of you who don't really know him) my second child. Brady is the typical second child. You all know the one...the one who never performs on que...the one who rarely will sit still long enough to have his picture taken, and therefore few photos of him exist...and since he won't perform on que, forget having any videos of him. He is however hopelessly addicted to his Momma (and now to his new baby cousin Lindsey, whom he refers to as "my sweet little Lindsey"). Which of course makes my head swell just a bit! He has a heart of gold and showers us with "I love you's" and kisses. But as a second child, he has been plagued with the "what is his name again". So he is often introduced as "Brady...you know like the Brady Bunch...or like Tom Brady the QB." But one thing that he learned earlier than any child I have ever known is how to cross his eyes. At 2 years old, the kid could instantly go into his cross eyes without the use of the finger to the nose trick. And can you guess where he realized this new found talent? At a Primitive Baptist meeting of course! And now the art of cross eyes has been perfected to a defense mechanism! I'm sure most of the Moms out there can appreciate the "glazed" over look during a lecture of discipline. Well my little man chooses the cross eyed approach verses the glaze look. Do any of you realize just how difficult it is to correct a child who is CROSS EYED? And it is even harder when he adds "Momma, you have two noses"! Unfortunately, his little technique works alot of times because after a comment like that who can keep a straight face!
