Back seat driver

We were sitting in traffic yesterday trying to get to the farmers market. The ferry lane next to us was moving just fine and the fact that I would not drive in that lane irked my son.
"Mommy, drive that way!"

"No, we are not getting on the ferry."

"But mommy, just drive that way! I don't want to sit here."

This continued on for a few more minutes suggesting different routes for me to take around the cars in front of me (and I should mention, none of them legal.) Since I was not complying with his requests, he decided to take matters into his own hands and told me,

"Actually, can I just drive mommy?"

We went to the Dr the other day for their 1 and 3 year check ups. And they could not be further from each other on body types. She is at the small end of the spectrum in height as I previously mentioned. He on the other hand is in the 95% for height and weight. He is 35.5lbs and 40 inches tall. I was surprised on the weight thing. The child is so slight and for crying out loud I can see his ribs poking out! But they are both healthy and that is what matters right?

That was so cute, I had to read it aloud to my family. We got a giggle out of it ;) My 4 yo Raechel often bosses me the same way. She sees a light turn green and says "Why are you still sitting still mommy, DRIVE!" hahaha
