Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on November 6, 2012

Is it just me or do 5 year old girls lose their minds and think that they are older and smarter than their moms?

It’s me isn’t it?

No other mother could have a daughter at the age of 5 who rolls her eyes when I scold her or practically snaps her neck when she responds to something she doesn’t like.

No other mother could have a daughter at the age of 5 who tries to use emotional blackmail, i.e. pouting lower lip, big puppy dog eyes and huge tears to get out of being disciplined or using that “You love my sister more than you love me!” line.

You know how your parents always had those famous lines that they would use over and over as you were growing up to put you in your place? You know… like Bill Cosby on The Cosby Show when he used to say “I brought you into this world…and I can take you out”?

Well, I realize that I’ve been establishing one of my own as my FIVE YEAR OLD daughter tries to manipulate me into getting what she wants: “You may be slick, but you’re not slicker than me….yet!”

Her response to this is the big, brown puppy dog look while she tries not to laugh.

Sigh…did I mention she was FIVE?

    Hi! My name is Mia. I found your blog because I’m fairly new to this blogging stuff and want to connect with other moms. Hope you don’t mind 🙂 I have a 6 yr old and a 3 month old…both boys! I loved this post! Reminds me of my older son. He’s got a comment for everything, and I forget how sometimes I shouldn’t laugh lol
