Trust The Kid

This is a quote I hear quite often lately from Cooper.  I don’t know if it’s a result of school, new friends or turning six, but Cooper has become quite a ‘know-it-all’.  He challenges me on everything and thinks he does not need my help with anything. 

There are many times that he wrong, but more and more, Cooper is ‘right on’ with things, and it’s scaring me.  He is growing up so fast and DOES NOT want to be my baby anyone, but rather my equal. 

Just last night, I was playing with my new cell phone and my six-year old son had to show me how to use a few of its features.  And guess what I heard…Mom, trust the kid.

I guess that’s it.  Cooper is becoming his own little man and I need to respect that and provide him some room to grow.  That would be the mature thing to do.  Instead, I plan to smother him with kisses and hugs and hold on to my baby as tight as I can. 

What?  I never claimed to be mature.
