Maybe it’s a stage. And maybe it’s not. But either way, I don’t want him to ever feel like he wasn’t able to express himself because his parents didn’t support him.
My parents let me run around butt naked from ages 1-3 because I’d scream if they tried to put clothes on me. I let the kids I babysit wear any and all hats/sunglasses/jewelry/socks I happen to have on because it makes them laugh. Trying to make a kid unhappy or feel bad for any reason is so fucking gross; this dad is a good dad.
