What Child is This

Kiddo is easily impressionable these days. As I'm sure I've stated before, he parrots everything we say. He is also pretty good at mimicking movements and expressions, and when on a playground with other children he instantly becomes a mirror image of whatever child happens to fall within his gaze. Every so often, he still pretends he's Dash from the Incredibles, or as of late, a hybrid of sorts he calls Super Kiddo. With arms raised in the air, he shouts "Super Kiddooo" and runs about the house at blazing fast speeds! ;) Although, while making super circles around my house, he does stop in the kitchen a time or two to check himself out in the reflection of the stove or dishwasher. He also likes to be Leo or Quincy from The Little Einsteins; picking up his pretend baton or trumpet and conducting or playing the instrument to his own little modified tune.

It disturbs me sometimes when we are around other children, because of course the behaviors he mimics are the ones I would rather him not do; be it throwing rocks at other kids or tossing himself off of moving playground equipment. But at home I can pretty much rely on positive influences developing his personality, as Hubby and I are pretty laid back, upright, normal sort of people. Sometimes though, I have to wonder...

And before you ask, no, Hubby doesn't run around nekkid with just a motorcycle helmet on, but I guess Kiddo thought the helmet with the gloves made for a complete outfit!

Hubby just had to get in on the helmet action...

Even more disturbing - Kiddo loves to imitate another member of our family...

I don't know if you can see it, but Kiddo has a bowl of dry cereal on the floor and is eating the same way the dog is. Ack! He has also been known to bark at Hubby when he comes home from work. Hmmm, maybe we should get out more!

Um, Davis eats dog food. And dog treats. Seriously. He will even get a handful of dog food and snack it, like it is popcorn. Disgusting......at least your Kiddo is eating human food. (;
