Mafia Man

 I'm not proud of it, but I find my little one's naughty antics totally hilarious.  I mean look at this little face.  He's just funny.  Funnier when he spends an hour digging at the beach, and when asked what he's doing, replies: "I'm digging a hole to bury Makili."  "Why Remick?" we ask.  "Because he's mean to me he replies."  At which point, Makili starts freaking out and asking, "is my head going to be above the sand?"  Remick curtly reponds, "no."  So then Makili starts trying to fill in the hole.  Good times.
 Or when he walks around the beach checking out what other people have in terms of toys and food, and when you ask him what he's doing he replies, "looking for something to steal.
 Or when you tell him to stop doing something (like eating dirt, or drinking stagnant disgusting water off the top of something dirty in the yard, etc.) and he tells you to go on the other side of the house for a minute so that he can continue to do what he was doing without you seeing.
 Or when you ask him what he wants for breakfast and he says "You pick."  So you offer cereal (or toast, or yogurt or fruit) and he is indignant with the offer and freaks out saying "NO!" and then you ask him what he wants again and it starts over.
So you see, I think I might have a little mafia man in training around here, which at the very least keeps us laughing.
