Somewhere along the way of my parenting years, I was never informed that kids who turn five suddenly get a boost in the confidence department.
Here’s today’s conversation during the drive home:
Me: Hey, Buddy. I see you in the mirror.
Hayden: Mommmmmmmm. Why are you looking at me?
Me: Because I think you’re cute.
Hayden: Look, Mom. I’m not cute.
Me: Yes, you are.
Hayden: No, I’m NOT…I’m COOL.
Who turns down cute?
