I remember when Payson was a baby I wrote a post about him and titled it Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
I reposted it today.
Almost two years later and I still think of Payson as a Jekyll and Hyde sort.
He is the whiniest, clingiest, most destructive, annoying little toddler to ever walk the Earth.
But he is also the cutest, funniest, silliest, most creative, bringer of joy to ever walk the Earth, too!
And I don’t make the Jekyll-Hyde comparison lightly, he is up or down, hot or cold, ornery or lovely.
Black and white only here; it is never gray, it is always one or the other.
It’s really quite amusing when it’s not utterly exhausting.
