I’ll just get right to the point. The little hummingbird has become this little ball of fire with her willfull ways and we’re
making each other mental kind of driving each other crazy.
She’s normally a sweet, mild-mannered little girl that goes with the flow but lately she’s been, well, a pain in the butt. I’m a stubborn pain in the ass so I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to believe that she could be like this but it’s become a battle of wills with us.
I’m usually more of the disciplinarian but I’ve noticed that even my hubby seems thrown off. It’s especially difficult when she does something that’s hilarious and then we have to keep a straight face.
A few nights ago, we were having dinner and she got into my not so hidden chocolate stash and grabbed a rolo that was still wrapped up.
My husband told her no and when she wouldn’t listen, he got up from the table to take it away from her. Instead of giving him the rolo, she shoved the whole thing, wrapper and all, into her mouth to hide the evidence.
It’s like she was a little goat and I couldn’t stop laughing no matter how I tried. It’s hard to discipline her when I’m practically rolling on the floor, laughing so hard I can’t breathe.
She also likes to announce to the world that “mommy peed herself” when I laugh a little too much.
Kids: 1,755, Mom’s Dignity: 0.
Being 3 is much harder than when she was 2. I think I need to start drinking more. I just know this is a glimpse of what it will be like when she’s a teen and I’m so screwed.
If you have older kids, how did/do you survive? It’s going to get worse, isn’t it? Just how screwed am I?
Get your mind out of the gutter, perv.
