From the Mouths of Babes

This is a short one tonight.  Miss Thing did had a couple of episodes today that are worth noting. 

This morning, the child was a BEAR!!!!  She’s had a general attitude lately.  I guess it’s just the 3 year old phase but it’s really hard to maintain my cool on a regular basis.  This morning she threw her pajamas at me and threw a proper hissy fit.  Her mother stepped in and got her straightened out.  We typically make her apologize to whoever she has been a turd to, this morning was no different.  Her mother told her to apologize to me and she came over and gave me a hug and said she was sorry. I asked her if she meant that.  She calmly replied, “no” and walked away.

I had to leave the room.  I didn’t figure it would be good for her to see me laughing.

Fast forward through the day.

We came home this evening and we were getting ready for bed.  She was enjoying her bath as she normally does.  She seemed to be in a better mood and we were happy for that.  While I was letting her play in the tub for “just a minute” as she puts it, I glanced in the mirror.  I don’t know if there is just some good light in that bathroom or if I have just never paid attention, but I saw gray hairs.  Not just one or two…Oh no.  They were everywhere.  I confirmed with Jayna that my eyes weren’t deceiving me.  She chuckled.  I returned to the bathroom and continued inspecting my hair.  I told the daughter that she was giving me grey hairs.

She said “yeah, I’m giving you silly hair.” 

Jayna had to assure me that she thought salt and pepper was hot.  I’m not sure if she really means that or she was just stroking my bruised ego.
