Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

The Disappearing Conversationalist

on June 13, 2012

Does anyone remember the Bugs Bunny episode with the guy down on his luck walking the streets one night and he finds a singing frog? But just when he thinks he’s found his gold mine, the frog refuses to sing for anyone else and the guy is totally ridiculed.

That cartoon is the best one to describe my Baby girl. Picture this if you will….rambunctious toddler that copies everything her big sister says and does. She sings and dances with or without music. She bosses her sister around and tries to hit her with the nearest toy when she’s mad. She will throw a tantrum like nobody’s business. But as soon as she gets in front of our friends or extended family….?


Okay, so she doesn’t exactly croak, but she does button those lips of hers so tight and refuses to say one word. Her big brown eyes would be wide and innocent and that is that! No smiling, no talking, no NUTHIN!!!

She’s only just started talking at daycare and she’s been there since last October!!! I’m pretty sure all of her teachers thought I was crazy. I kept telling them how talkative she was at home and they gave me a look like I had a horn in the middle of my forehead! My only saving grace was that Diva girl could and did vouch for me! Times are bad; when I need my 5 year old to confirm that I’m not stark raving mad (at least not all the time!) Baby girl would be singing and dancing in the car; laughing and jumping on the walk up to the centre; talking a mile a minute in the hall of the centre and then I would open the door to the toddler room and….


Come on! Really???

I’ve even resorted to recording her with my phone just to have proof. But I’m now convinced that the child is trying to make me look bad! Yup, it’s all part of her diabolical plan to drive me up the wall. Oh yes, she may be cute but she’s tricky! Do I sound paranoid? Do I really?
