There in No Pleasing This Kid

November 15, 2009

Now I love the Big One to death.  She is my child and I will always claim her as my own, but let me tell you there are days when I swear she is 99.999% her father.   I can say that because there is never  a time when I have ever been such a pain in the butt.


This is just one small glimpse into my daily life.


It was 5:30 a.m. It was still dark outside, as it should be at 5:30 a.m.  I was asleep, when suddenly I hear small footsteps followed by a cranky little four-year-old voice bellowing, “MOMMY! Why is it so dark in my room?”


“Well, {Big One} it’s still sleeping time.  Is your sun on yet?” I replied.


To which she responded that no in fact her sun was not on.  But that was beside the point to her, she still wanted to know why it was still dark in her room.


Again, I explained that it was NOT time to wake up yet and we could discuss it further when her sun was on and it was an appropriate time for her to be awake.


So she stomped off down the hall and I rolled over and fell back asleep.


Now normally I am awake by 6:30, but it has been rough week or so and I am tired.  So the next thing I know it is 7:30 a.m. and here come the footsteps again.


“MOMMY! Why is it so bright in my room?” She whined in a sleepy voice.


Are you kidding me?


I admit I rolled over and told her to go back to her room until she adjusted her attitude.
