2018 Shut-Down

Happy New Year everyone! I woke up early this morning to our son handing me my glasses, and then grabbing my right hand to pull me out of bed. He's an ambitious early-riser.

After wishing him a happy New Year, I decided to inform him of something very important:

Me: Sawyer, happy New Year!

Sawyer: Oh wow wow.

Me: Just so you know, 2018 is the year that Mommies are in charge. Ok?

Sawyer: No. No.


I got shut-down by a toddler. He's a bit defiant early in the morning...on the first day of the year...which landed on a Monday...also one of the worst days of the week. Sheesh. I can understand now why he refuses to relinquish control.
