1). It is harder to say no to our little girl than it is our little boy. Fair or not, it is the truth. We want to raise him to be tough, but struggle with letting her be anything but our little princess.
2). We don’t like to punish you. We do it because we want you to learn early that there are consequences with every decision we make.
3). Sometimes we sing Disney tunes while you aren’t in the car. Once we realize this, we stop immediately and crank up Avenged Sevenfold. Loud. Very loud.
4). When you are asleep in the car, it is difficult to take the rearview mirror off of you and put it back on the road.
5). We try to act tough for you and for your mommy, but somethings do break out hearts. We just act tough until you aren’t around.
6). Sometimes we want to physically hurt a three year old kid when they hurt you. But we know we can’t.
