I seriously think I could devote an entire blog to my third child Bo. The things he says and does are quite interesting. Sometimes frustrating. Other times encouraging. But at the least--interesting.
I just want to record a few of his sayings lately.
Here is his issue: It's a power struggle. He wants the power. Bad. Really Bad.
I am guessing this power struggle will be evident throughout a lot of his life.
He is quite capable and independent. He is good a doing a lot of things. But he is 3 years old.
I cannot tell you how many times I have explained the chain of command in this house. Mommy and Daddy are in charge of Bo. (and his siblings--but he doesn't seem to care about that right then). But Mommy and Daddy must listen to and obey God.
It seems simple enough. But Bo does not think so.
In the last week alone he has said the following to me.
"Mommy! You are not the boss of me!
Me: "Actually, I am."
"And I tried to tell Daddy too--He is not the boss of me either."
Me: "Actually, he is."
Bo is just heart-broken at the news. He is sobbing and angry. I explain the chain of command and remind him that God loves him so much and that is why it is set up like this. . . blah blah blah.
He has started to threaten me.
He was angry the other day and said in a very stern voice, "I am not going to marry you now Mommy!"
And he threatened to not look at me again. And today he said that he would put on his angry face and then look at me all day long.
I guess he can't decide how to unleash on me.
My older kids just didn't think to do this.
He is unique for sure.
He is plays hard, fights hard and loves hard. He is the first to say he loves me and to tell me how pretty I am. (today he told me that the earrings I am wearing do not make me look pretty. the other ones do)
And I am pretty crazy about that kid.
Someone remind me of that when I am sitting in the Principal's office at Lake Highlands High School listening to the latest shenanigans that he has been a part of.
Did I just end a sentence in a preposition?
