Patiently Waiting

Patiently waiting for anything is an incredibly difficult thing for a 3 year-old to do.

The concept of delayed gratification (as we explored here) is foreign and incomprehensible to them.

Nevertheless, they are capable of it on rare occasions.

Like, for example, this morning, when Lil Sippy Cup, inspired by the Halloween episode of "Max and Ruby", patiently hid in the kitchen for 10 minutes with the lights off so that he could jump out and yell "BOO!" at his father at the precise moment said father was walking in front of the kitchen door.

My heart and my head still hurt.

Lil Sippy Cup, on the other hand, still thinks it is the funniest thing he has ever done.

After picturing this in my mind, I will have to agree with Sippy Cups. It was very funny.
