Elian Vs. Arnold

Oh man I have been waiting SO LONG to publish this video!  I can't even tell you how excited I am to share the awesomeness of this epic battle between my beloved son and my sweet husband.  This video was taken at Martiza's parents house our first week in Colombia with Elian.  The whole week was equal parts overwhelming joy and nightmarish struggles. Because the adoption was not yet finalized I chose at that time to only write about the joyful moments but let's get real, it wasn't all fun.  Elian refused to eat anything but yogurt for the whole week among other issues.  Keep this in mind as you see my child battle with Arnold over his sovereign right to EAT ROCKS.  That's right we spent the whole week stressing about his eating only to watch him sneakily try to devour pebbles at the playground.  We watched this video almost every night we were in Colombia and it still makes me laugh hysterically.  ENJOY! PS-I can't believe how much bigger he is now.  Crazy.

PPS - Thank you to everyone who shared their encouraging words and crazy parenting experiences yesterday.  I truly appreciate your support!
