Who's the Boss

K, our four year-old is very concerned about who the boss is. For example - we have to remind her that she is the boss of herself - not the boss of M, her two year-old sister. We also explain that Mommy and Daddy are the boss of both her and M - as well as ourselves. Her friends are the bosses of themselves...etc. She likes order and respects boundaries.

Today as she was talking to her Uncle C she explained the boss hierarchy to him on the phone.

K: Uncle C-, I'm the boss of myself.
C: Oh.
K: Daddy is the boss of himself - not the boss of me and M.
Me (interjecting because we have it on speaker): Yes he is. Daddy is also the boss of you and M.
K: No he's not - he didn't have a baby in his belly.
