It's true... I've become that mom.
Punkin: I don't want to wear a coat.
Me: You have to - it's cold outside.
M: Because it's winter.
M: Because that's the way the world works.
M: Because God made it that way.
M: Because I said so.
Who knew that was more powerful than God? Only it wasn't, because it's not like the next response wasn't once again, "Why?". But that's when I changed the subject...
So, is it wrong that I think if I start saying, "Because I said so." now while Punkin's 2, that he'll get used to it and start thinking that it's an acceptable response? Yeah, I didn't think so...
