She runs the show.

I used to be a pretty strict parent.

I was completely set on our family rules and when I said something, I meant it.

And then Ruby came along and changed me.

Tonight she decided that she will no longer sit in her high chair. I’ve made the mistake of letting her sit in regular chairs to color or snack and now she knows that she’s capable. I can’t even remember using the word “refused” with the boys because if they refused something, there were consequences. You don’t want to sit the way you’re supposed to? You don’t eat. But something is different with Ruby. I’m different and how I parent is different. And pretty much – she’s running the show.
