WOW he can dress himself *enter eyeroll and vent.*
Well BM just called SO bragging about how the boy whose almost 5 is starting to dress himself and we need to make sure to let him.
Are you kidding me? Has she really been doing it for him all this time?
SO stopped that crap a year ago. Sure we've had to button a button or snap a snap now and then but the way she babies this kid.....
He used sippy cups till last December when she called SO demanding he get rid of them too since she was tired of them.... umm to late honey he hadn't had one at dads for over 6 months.
Every time she gets tried of something or makes this big break through she contacts him bragging and demanding he do the same.
And every time she's always half a year behind.
The way she babies this child. He's almost 5 and just now dressing himself in her home?
Oh but tell her he can buckle himself when transferring SO's and I'm the problem.
Seriously. I'm worried about this kids devolopment. He does amazing with us because he knows the rules. Goes to bed at a decent time. Stays in bed. Wakes up easy. Accepts being told no (within reason).
But BM's calls and Facebook post are the opposite. Kid stays up past midnight, sleeps in her bed, won't eat, throws fits.
Trust me I get it. This is just the name of the game. I just sorry how it will impact the kid in the future. That his father and in turn me are the only ones who apparently expect him to behave and grow.
