As if Maddox not wanting to kiss me at the bus stop yesterday was bad enough, today Cooper instructed me to "Stop!" Then proceeded to walk a few feet ahead of me and then signaled it was safe for me to continue down the sidewalk. Isn't 3 a little young to be embarassed about walking with your mom (in the middle of the day without anyone around)?? I would have taken offense to his actions but he redeemed himself by insisting on holding my hand the entire walk to the bus stop to greet Maddox after school! I guess he was just testing out some independence.
