What Cohen Really Thinks of Me

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Lately this kid has been giving me a run for my money.  I'm not sure if it is the big life changes that are starting to get to him but I keep getting these flashbacks of the Threenager I thought I had zipped up and thrown away eight months ago.  So tonight (after I had a huge mommy melt down moment about the behavior), I sat down with Cohen to talk and read a few of our library books.  This child melts my heart in so many ways but yet he is so good at tugging just the right strings.  I saw this funny survey people were posting on Facebook the last few days and decided it would be fun to ask him what he thinks about his mom.

Brave, I know.

(This was post doughnut hence the frosting on his face.  Yes I bathe my children.)

Child Survey About Mom

When you fall down.
(Gee, thanks Buddy.)
