Mother Nature is pretty smart.
Now that the boys are two, they are really flexing their decision making muscles all the time for good and bad. They often decide to throw food on the floor, steal toys, knock things down, climb to reach no-no items, and on and on at least a dozen times an hour. They also do not understand how anyone could ever tell them no. This sends them into a tailspin that often resembles a tantrum. However, the more ornery they get, the cuter they get too. It is like some kind of cosmic balance. Just when you think you can't take anymore from them, they give you the cutest smile, tell you they love you or do something really adorable.
