Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Baby Jekyll and Prissy Missy Hyde

How can that precious little 2-year-old who was trying to sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star with me about an hour ago turn into this stark-raving lunatic who won't lay down in her bed unless someone is patting her back and rubbing her hair?

I'm trying to ignore it. But the MOMMY screams over and over - dotted with some higher pitches here and there, different intonations, some with the emphasis on the eee sound, some on the MOM sound. All together, it is making me a nervous wreck. With Army of Dad gone, she slept with me last night. So, she wanted to do that again tonight. I told her no. Now, I'm hearing the full fledged fit getting thrown.

These are the moments that try a man's soul, or something to that effect.

Add to it, I think I'm PMSing because I was crying while reading "The Kissing Hand" to Hot Rod at bedtime. God, that is a sweet story. Pickle has a story that makes me cry, too, "I'll love you forever." My sadistic boys get a giggle out of it.

Seems Pickle couldn't handle the fits and crying. He just came downstairs to get Stinkerbelle Fit Thrower of the Highest Order a sippy cup of water. He was going to cave in and get her milk until I stopped him. Didn't work. Time to go be Momzilla.

    We have both those children books too, and your right, they are tear jerkers. Have you ever read "I love you the purplest?" It's about a Mom with 2 boys and they ask her "who do you love the best?" Her answers and the way she knows each one of her children makes me cry everytime I read it! Good luck with Stinkerbelle. If it's any comfort her Hoosier cousin, Stinkerbelle, really was acting up today, too. There must be a full moon? HA HA HA

    Sorry I couldn't be there to take your mind off of it/take a turn telling her to lay down and go to sleep.

    Army of Dad - enjoy your break from parenting duties, if you can, and getting to sleep uninterrupted. I've had kids in my bed every night you've been gone.

    and, BW3 - you do have the ORIGINAL Stinkerbelle. Ours is but a copy. ;) And, I haven't got that book, sounds like one I should avoid.
