Lucas Made an Announcement

During dinner several days ago, Lucas decided he had to use the bathroom. Ian and I took the opportunity to discuss some current affairs that we wouldn’t normally discuss in front of the boy.

From the throne, Lucas shouted “I AM THE BOSS OF THIS HOUSE! Stop talking!”

Since then, he’s tried repeatedly to convince us with “logic” that the ultimate authority around here rests in him. “Really. For reals. In real life.” Uh-huh.

    I don’t remember you having a cat so he may be right.

    Amazing and amusing. So much energy is focussed on him and his care, and so he turns it inside out and extrapolates “I make it go!” Wow.

    Boy is he going to be surprised and disappointed when the new little one arrives. But for one brief shining moment, he’s fully convinced he’s master of the universe.

    I think each of my kids thought that, and even expressed it.


    Same as them yelling at me. Once.

    Yeah, I’ll never forget the first time my mom brought her fist around in to my chin. Ah, childhood.
