Cookie Cutter People

So I am driving along with the kiddos and all is well. We are playing the game we call “Guess the Song”. Just something to pass the hour drive to the closest medium town. The older kids are getting them left and right, while Peyton sits pouting. He is younger and therefore doesn’t know as many. I ignore him. Why? Because he is acting foolish. Then, he makes the sad mistake of saying that it isn’t fair.

I saw red.

I calmly pull the truck over and verbally lay into my son. Now, I know you all probably think I am just awful but honestly, I don’t care. See, this is how I see it. If I would have coddled my son at that moment, I would have done him great harm.

He needs me to be honest with him.

He needs me to tell him to suck it up and get over it.

And so I did.
