The “Too Much” Kid

harbor 10

See that little one on the right?

He is 3 years old and he’s my ‘too much’ kid.

Too much energy. Too much noise. Too much joy. Too much love.

I call him spirited. Some say feral.

He goes a mile a minute and usually needs to be reminded to slow down.

Like this morning I told him his pants were on inside out.

And that he only had one sock on.

He had no idea.

But then again, he notices when his baby sister has a runny nose and takes the time to wipe it.

He takes big brothering very seriously.

‘Mama, I’ll do it. She’s my baby.’

Too much cute I tell ya.
