Ok - as most of you know, I've been struggling with Alex not listening to me, and actually laughing in my face when I tell him no.
I think we just had a breakthrough!!!
He was sitting on the floor playing with the computer cord. I looked right at him and said, "Alex, No!" He dropped the cord and looked right back at me.
He listened!!!!! YEAH!!!! Needless to say we had a tickel fest on the floor right after that. ;)
