The little brat is a study of opposites.

He is hungry, but is not willing to eat. He’s sleepy, but won’t settle down. He wants to play, but gets bored right away. He doesn’t want a diaper change, but is “ripe”. He’s crying but will smile suddenly. He doesn’t want his nails cut, but will scratch himself silly with them. He screams if he’s put down, then he screams if he is picked up again. He doesn’t want to eat, but will take a whole meal if pressed. He doesn’t want to get dressed, but loves being outside.

Maybe once his corpus callosum is fully developed, he will not be of two minds so often.
