Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on September 28, 2012


“I’m too tired!”

“I don’t want to!”

“That’s not fair!”

These are the words that have become part of my morning routine. Diva girl is definitely NOT a morning person, and I am definitely NOT a happy mommy! Not only does it disrupt the morning schedule that I have tried to create, but this rebellious stage is exhausting and makes my throat very dry….yelling every morning will do that to you, you know.

To make matters worse, Baby girl is a parrot of her older sister’s actions and so now we have ‘Mini Me’ telling me that it’s ‘not fair’ when she doesn’t get to watch Dora at 8:30 in the morning and hanging her head, pouting her lip and crossing her arms when she doesn’t get her way. All the things she says are words and expressions learned from her big sister. Don’t get me wrong, it’s actually quite cute to hear her try to pronounce all the words, but not so cute when I gotta get one on the school bus in less than 5 minutes and one in the car to get to daycare.

Funny, how quickly they move when they know they’re going to Nana’s house.

I’ve been told to try the reward system. I’m probably going to use stickers. Don’t worry, I promise not to use them to temporarily stick their mouths closed or anything like that.

That’s just wrong.

But if you see a kid with one stuck firmly to her forehead one day, you know I was at my wit’s end.
