son: mom, i want some chocolate milk
me: after nap.
son: no, i want some now.
me: you've already had 2 treats: a penguin cookie and two little
chocolates. nap first, then you can have some chocolate milk.
son: you make me so angry [hands clenched]
me: i'm sorry i make you angry [hugging him tighter] but it's my job to make sure that you're not eating too much sweets. (a weak argument, i know). i'm sure i will make you angry many more times again throughout your entire life.
son: [wide-eyed silence]
me: [tighter grip on the three-year old]
is it... weird, that it makes me proud that he told me he was angry with me? it kind of makes my heart swell a bit.
