Last week Brandon yelled at me from the backseat, "mom how come you won't take the child lock off my door, dad did, why won't you? Dad is cooler."
I remained calm but inside my head was exploding to fucking pieces.
Honestly I don't know why I keep the child lock on, I just do. It's the last thing I have. He's out of his five point harness, he's losing teeth, he is 10" from being taller then me all I have left is keeping his ass locked in the car so he can't run away and live his own life.
Today driving to Brandons rookie ball opening day I was reminded about the door. I asked my husband why he did it and he said he was tired of opening the door for him all the time. I however don't mind opening the door which means I don't want to take the child lock off BUT I don't want dad to be cooler then me.
So what do I do? Do I take the lock off, or stand my ground and be the lame parent?
