Yesterday at 5:30 pm, I got a call from the husband, "I'm DONE! I'm DONE! here, you talk to him."
"Mommy, I'm mad at Daddy! Daddy hurt my feelings! I don't like it, Daddy!" the little man said in between sobs.
I got the whole story when they came home. Daddy and the little man had a race on who could get to the car faster and when Daddy won, the little man threw a tantrum.
Fast forward to this morning. "Matty, don't fight with Daddy today when he picks you up," I said.
"Mommy, I need to. Cons why [because] I want YOU to pick me up!"
I was stunned for a few seconds but recovered nicely. "Matty, I can't pick you up. And if you don't want Daddy to pick you up, you're going to have to walk home. And it's a long way home!"
"Huh?" he said.
Now, we're both speechless.
