The aiden_freeman has decided that his favourite game is to go over to the shelf of board games and pull them down and take them apart.
So today, I officially learned to invoke, "No." And let me tell you.. I truly understand the phrase, "This is gonna hurt me more than it's gonna hurt you."
I pulled him away from the box he began to tear and reprimanded with a stern "No"
He plopped down and started to cry. Which in its own way is still wired into the failure-as-a-human circuit in my spine.
Then he tried to get back into the games again. So, I picked him up and put him in the play pen. Which caused more crying. Which causes more angst internally.
Oh, yeah.. Dom, Top, blah, blah, blah...
I don't like being bad cop to the boy.
Hopefully, someday he'll understand. Gah.
