At only two years old, Jackson knows how to be a mama manipulator. This morning I was getting a little frustrated because he was dragging his feet about getting ready and we were starting to run a little late. I told him to sit on the stairs so I could put his shoes on. He reached out and grabbed my neck for a hug and then this:
Jackson: I love you SO much Mommy!!!
Me: Awww, I love you too baby!
Jackson: That makes you so happy mom!
Me: It does make me very happy that you love me!
Jackson: Yes, it makes you not be angry at me anymore when I say this!
…He’s right. I mean I wasnt angry with him, but just getting (apparantly visibly) flustered about having to go back to work today (worst ever. E-V-E-R.) and missing them and trying to get both of them ready and out the door. Anyhow, he knows exactly what buttons to push haha!
