I’m now into educating my youngest one to let me talk to people in peace. She always interrupts me and it’s annoying, as you might understand.
One of my fears of dating somebody new is that when they’ll be around me and my little one, they might be horrified at how I let her boss me around, interrupt me and make me do things at any time. My girl is not that bad, maybe, but I’m afraid of this.
