Do all four-year-olds go through phases of being cuddly to the point of clingy, then five minutes later want nothing to do with you? I only have one specimen, so I really don’t know. I can tell you that yesterday Luke and I were organizing his bedroom and he was super enthusiastic about our together time. I got up to walk out of the room and he said, “Mom!! Where are you going?”

“Calm down. I’m just going to the bathroom. I’ll be right back.”

“Is it number one, or number two?”

“Lucas Payne, that’s none of your business.”

“Ok, just be careful. I’ll miss you.”

In case you’re wondering, yes I did lock the bathroom door.
