Perfect Moment Monday - "Abre"

Check out Weebles Wobblog for more Perfect Moments.

My perfect moment came at about 4 pm this afternoon after a series of not-so-perfect moments. Moments where a 3 year old refuses to take a nap even though he is extremely tired and cranky. Min man has reached the stage where he is vocalizing his opinions more and pointing his finger when he does not want to do something.

I spent two hours trying to get him to fall asleep. I spent this amount of time because I am trying to teach him that even though he does not want to do something, he has to do it 'cause I said so!

After the eighth time of going into Min man's room and telling him to lay down I hear him jump out of bed and start messing with things in his room. I suck in my breath before yelling out his name and I hear," Open the door. Abre, abre."

I laughed out loud. Last night when watching Dora he learned the word for open- "abre"

What am I supposed to do with that other than chuckle and forget about a nap for today?
