It's Not Fair!

It's not fair is a common phrase heard around here lately. Landon turned 6 and now all of a sudden he thinks he's grown and knows what's best for him. His neighborhood friends are able to walk all over the neighborhood with no supervision. Landon is not allowed to do so. He has to stay in the front yard at all times. Six years old is far too young to be running all around the neighborhood unsupervised. When Landon's friends leave our front yard to go play elsewhere Landon refuses to come in. Instead he'll come tell me "it's not fair" and then walk down to the bottom of the driveway, sit down, and pout. I hate to break it to you Landon, but you're going to utter that phrase countless times throughout your life. You won't be getting a smart phone while in elementary school. Heck, you won't even be getting one in high school. We'll hear "it's not fair" from you when we deny you a new car when you turn 16. We'll hear it time and time again from you over the next 12 years and it won't phase Mommy and Daddy one bit. It just reiterates that we're doing our job well. We love you Landon and that's why we're perfectly ok with hearing you say "it's not fair."
