No seemingly 'eloquent' thoughts today. Just a story from last night...
I told T-Pup to pick up a toy. He replied "No, you don't tell me what to do" (he did not yell or say it ugly, just matter-of-factly). I then calmly replied "Momma told you to pick up the toy. You do what Momma says because I am the Momma". He then popped a bit of an attitude, and I told him to go sit in the corner until his heart was right. As he marched over, he said "But I just don't want you to be my Momma anymore, I just want Daddy to be my Daddy."
I know as a child I said this phrase several times, as a teenager I said it a lot more, and that I would someday experience it as a parent.
Hmm. Guess the day has come and gone.
