leave me alone Mommy! I'm getting tired of you....
He's 5 and told me this on the train this morning because I was nagging him about keeping still. He was fidgeting and kept leaning onto the woman sitting next to him. I told him that it wasn't a very nice thing to say. And when we got off I sat him down and asked him if he would like if I went away and he never saw me again. Of course he got sad and said No...I told him that he hurt my feelings and he said Sorry Mommy :-(

I think you handled the situation in a good way. He was bothered with you telling him to keep still, he does not know how to articulate his words so he just flat out said how he was feeling at that moment. He did say sorry and you did explained how it hurtyour feelings. When my daughter was 4 we were walking to the park, my daughter got angry with me because I asked her to stop dragging her sweater. She told me that she was not my mommy anymore! I just kept on walking, she followed calling mommy, I paid not attention to her. She started to cry ran up to me and said mommy I am talking to you. I looked around and said well you told me I was not your mommy anymore. Then I told her she hurt my feelings no matter what I will always love her and be her mommy. I know I was a bit immature!!
