One of the things I have observed about my sons is their focus. They both have a lot of energy and can be quite wild, But, when they settle down and choose a task, I pity the fool who tries to stop them. It could be trying wrap a long plastic snake around a truck and drag the truck around the house or building a Duplo rocket. It might be learning the letters of the alphabet or creating the perfect train crash. Whatever it is, it's the focal point of life. They don't want to talk, interact, get input...they just want to focus.
We were able to talk Christian into going with David to get his haircut instead of going to the more expensive kid's shop on the other side of town. We old him we would give him the difference in cash to go buy a toy.

I really enjoy this traight because it gives us some good breaks throughout the day and it balances out the high energy levels.
