I talk to a mother-friend of mine and we compare notes on how we have changed throughout the years, going from caring for one to two or more children. I admit that my tactics have changed with Leo, compared to how they were with Kate.
- I have become more relaxed, I say. I allow him to do more and get away with more stuff.
My friend nods her head in agreement.
- But it is also harder, I continue. This time around it takes more diplomacy, more sly tactics and clever negotiating. I need to use more force and be focused.
The look on my friends face has changed.
- It's not battle, she says. You're not strategizing a war.
- I might as well be, I say with a deep sigh. It's me against him and I need to be on top.
