This is SO us right now. I understand that you are almost three. I understand that you must exert your will on the world. I understand that I am in your way as you attempt to do this. However, you must understand that you are not quite three. And you must understand that your world is still dictated by grown-ups. And you must understand that I am in your way because it's my job to keep you safe, healthy and mentally stable.
You may not believe it, but I sure do love you...
