While the “fuck you” 4’s have been challenging with the little hummingbird, it’s also been hilarious and mind boggling. I don’t have a great poker face so I usually have to leave the room while I laugh hysterically and pee my pants because of the little bird’s antics.
Last week, my daughter climbed up on the air conditioner in our hotel room and then started playing with the curtains. It seemed innocent at first since she was mostly opening and closing them.
Then she discovered the curtain stick closer thingamabobs. She started lifting herself up by them and made a reach for the curtains. My husband scolded her and told her to get down.
Like the hummingbird she is, once we thought she was about to get down, she pulled a quick one on us and was raising herself off of the a/c while reaching for the curtains. She got up on the curtains pretty damn high.
Sidenote: I’m sure my mom is enjoying the payback right about now.
I was in giggle mode by that point and very impressed with her ballsy behavior so I tried to tame the giggling while my husband scolded her again and put her in a time out.
It was one of those moments when you have to put on a “mean mom” face but at the same time your thinking damn, my kid has skills. I loved her tenacity.
That’s when I lost it and had to leave the room because I was laughing so hard. She’s quite a little spark plug.
And while I’ve heard of people saying things like oh hell, the kids will be climbing the curtains, I never actually thought kids really did that sort of thing.
What have been some things your little spark plugs have done that impressed you or made you giggle, yet you had to use the “mean mom” face without trying to laugh?
