My son, when he wants to be, is such a charmer, he'd probably get rich selling auto insurance. Unfortunately, he has more impatient days than really charming days, and more stubborn moments than receptive and open moments these days.
And I blame myself.
Well, it's not my fault really. It's not like I did anything bad to him. But he is pushing the issue of his independence at a time when he must also feel that something about his circumstances is about to change. Already, hubs has really been strict with him about being rough with Mommy. And Mommy's self-preservation instincts really cannot appreciate the hyper boy that is him.
Heaven help us indeed!
