Other examples include: B loves sleeping, but will ever so often balk at taking a nap and then minutes later be excited about tucking himself in or want to "play" nap the next day. He will be annoyed at M for being too loud at dinner and then moments later will be "talking" with her at about the same volume. Maybe it isn't a paradox so much as it is just being inconsistent in his wishes and hopes, but some days it can be trying. Other days, it is quite charming somehow. I sort of doubt he even notices that he has inconsistent positions. Every so often it reminds me just a tiny bit of my Grandma Dotter who would gladly argue completely contradictory positions simultaneously at times. (Perhaps she should have been a lawyer too:) Meanwhile, my little man, you're an interesting mix little one and we love almost every minute of it.
