You know you make me want to SHOUT!
Pull my hair out and SHOUT!
Stomp my feet now and SHOUT!
Put a pillow over my mouth and SHOUT!
Come on now GET OUT!
Please quit sassing me with that mouth!
Don’t tell me “NO” or I am going to SHOUT!
It’s a phase right? Tell me, swear to me, promise me, convince me this is a phase.
The sweet little girl with a sassy mouth is just a phase. I will repeat that to myself until I believe it. (Much like I have finally convinced myself that Reese’s Cups are the perfect source for protein, iron and dairy)
Phases. Boy, we have seen a lot of them in this short 3 years and 10 months of raising two children.
- The strange eating phase. Brown foods only – peanut butter, chicken, etc. The love of pepperoni and peanut butter sandwiches. The no food can touch thing. Eating the dog food like it’s gourmet (that one did my confidence some good) Drink only out of a green cup.
- I am a dog phase – Once again, eating dog food (At least they have shiny hair and a healthy digestive tract) panting, barking, scratching and the licking…eww, the licking. Did I mention the chihuahua like barking that was NON-STOP! Have I ever mentioned that Buzz has had a piece of twine hanging from the back of her panties for 4 months now? Yeah, I don’t like to talk about it much.
- The clothing phases – Does anyone remember the pink dress incident from my old blog? (You can find it here)
- Random strangeness – The oldest won’t sleep in her room for fear that the bunny who lives under the bed will nibble her toes off while she sleeps (Huh?) The youngest is obsessed with wearing panties on her head (and nothing else) WonderPets wonderment (What’s it gonna take…TEAMWORK) Barney (Thank heaven we are over that one already) The youngest likes to hear the sound of herself gagging and does it frequently. The oldest must have two handfuls of toilet paper when doing “The Deed.” One she uses for “Down Under” and the other is used to cover her nose. (I can appreciate that)
So, what phase just makes you want to SHOUT?
