Talked a bit about Stocks recently and what mine looked like. Gave a little insight as to from where *I* came. It really shouldn’t come to any surprise then that with each day that adds to
Lil Duck’s age so too does she increase her Sass quotient.
She doesn’t officially turn three until the end of the summer yet to talk with her….ahhh…well…its an adventure. Most times she has me in stitches and I really should be handing down some sort of reprimand. But how can I? What is it they say about your children being 10 times worse than you were as a child? I may not make it through this sober!
While getting ready for a bath the other night…it went something like this:
“Lil Duck, go ahead and take your shoes and pants off. I’ll help with your shirt. Lets get ready for your bath.”
“Why don’t you take your face off, Mom!”
Hmmm….yeah…..okay….. I had to laugh, she was giggling too.
She was having an especially difficult time following directions one afternoon so I took her distractions away which amounted to me removing the toys in her possession. While doing this I said, “Lil Duck. You obviously can not hear me with these in your hands. Now, turn your ears on and listen to me please.”
Flipping her hair back from her ears, “But MOM! I do not have buttons on my ears!”
Or then there was the day she was goofing off in the parking lot at the grocery store and once in the car I gave her a stern talking to about following rules in a parking lot for safety and how important it is. The ENTIRE time I am speaking to her she is mocking and mimicking my facial expressions. I still can NOT believe this child is NOT EVEN THREE! HOLY HELL I AM IN TROUBLE!
Of course she does super sweet and funny stuff too! My most favorite as of late is when she is sitting on her potty chair, legs crossed at the ankles and singing Zippity Do Da.
What Tyrannical Three’s stories do you have to share? I have a feeling there will be MANY more to come from the pond…
