He's my boy
Boy2.0 is a "strong-willed" child. Basically, he ONLY does what he wants to do, which means getting anything done involves convincing him that whatever is happening was his idea. I thought he inherited this trait from his mom - I was an anxious and timid child who was desperate not to get in anyone's way - but then this evening, his mom pointed out that I shouldn't drink any more wine because I have a show later. So what did I do? I downed the wine...followed by, "Don't tell me what to do". In that moment, not only did I realise where he got his hard-headedness, but I think I'm one step closer to actually understanding him.
What can I say? He's my boy.
