Of all my moms... and other random observations
It’s hard to tell what his angle is, but SS has been laying it on thick these days. Very affectionate and lots of “you’re the best”s. This was a funny one though. All four of us were walking back to the car and he says
”of all my moms.... of the one mom I’ve had.... steplightly... you’re the youngest.. you’re a young one.
youre kind of like... my godmother.... I’m weird aren’t I?”
He’s a good kid.
But earlier this week we had a moment. He was mocking me over something insignificant, but it was rude. He’s done this before and I have had about enough. I came very close to throwing Nutella in the trash (his favorite pool snack) while he’s whining sorry sorry.
I tell him he may say that but mocking people is not a nice way to be. You don’t treat people like that. And he needs to think about his choices and the way he treats people. And that it’s not okay to mock anyone. Not me, not his dad or sister, not his mom or her boyfriend. I told him he’s a nicer person than that. He quietly started helping me pack up the bag and said he’s really sorry. So I told him if he pinky promised to stop mocking people he could have the Nutella. it seems to have stuck? For now?
I know, I know. I’m naive and it’s gonna blow up in my face. Oh well.
