As an at-home parent, I witness the development process firsthand. Milestones happen every day. Some happen to suck.
When I ask my son, “The Understudy”, to do something he doesn’t want to do, he walks away quickly. Today he made his first real decision and he vocalized it. As his father, it is my duty to make sure he knows that I will always have the upper hand. I am proud of the defiant little monster that he became today.
Welcome to the game, rookie.
