My child is so bullheaded. And so am I and so is my mother. Sometimes it ain't pretty.

I just want my mom to keep her mouth shut and not give her opinion. Certainly not to say things like "Jamie wins most of the battles no wonder she fights so much"

Geesh just not what I want her to comment on. Specially in front of Jamie.

This from a almost 70 yr old woman who will argue back and forth with Jamie about stupid stuff. "Yes it is" "No it isn't" "Yes it is" and so on.

You get the message.

What is it with Moms and daughters. It's like a constant tug of war.

Sometimes I am sad I am not going to have the experience of raising a boy. A boy who would adore and listen.

Is it true what they say? Are boys easier?

Not easier here anyway - just different. Ander has decided that he can be the parent and come tell me when it's time for me to be in bed. Could be because I used to go to bed at the same time. He is getting better responding with "yes, ma'am", etc. but some days I pull my hair out! ;-)

Jamie is also getting better at yes ma'am and yes sir. I guess that is a plus. We are trying to show we won't stand for her sassing.

So far, boys are easier.... but that could just be because Buster's only 14 months old!
