Sometimes DH will try and give DS a kiss while he's eating, but not usually. As for what else he does, DH is very creative and DS is still testing the waters of life. And DH will, lets say they're playing trains, and DH will get this idea of rearranging the tracks or using a different car or something like that to just change things up a bit and DS will say no, and DH will push him a little and then a little more. He's not being mean about it, but he doesn't listen to DS when he says "no, I don't want to do that". We have to push DS, sometimes, to try things we know won't hurt him and that in the end he'll have fun doing. For instance, at our local mall, they have a train that you can ride through the mall in. When I asked DS if he wanted to ride it he said Yes!! Then when we got up to it he freaked and said he was scared. I explained to him about the train, we went up to it to look at to make it seem not so scary and in the end I had to pick him up and put him in and of course he loved every second of it. That's what I mean when I say we have to push him. It's the things we know he'll have fun doing but he's scared because he's never done it before. But with DH, it's like he sees DS saying no to something he suggests and DH thinks he has to push over every little idea he has.
They do go out to Lowes together or the grocery store once in a while, so they're not always home together. I'd rather stay home anyway and let them go out!!
I have been trying to say things in a different way so as not to upset him, but it's been going on so much for what seems like forever I just want to smack DH and say "would you just listen to what your son wants and stop annoying him!" Ah, that makes me laugh when I re-read that. It's almost like it goes in one ear and out the other. Almost like I'm dealing with another 3 yr old who doesn't want to listen to me.
