Now? I don't know who this kid is!
She tells me sometimes, after her little fits when she's crying and cuddling me, she says "I don't want to grow up, Mommy. Growing up makes you bad."
With an older sister and two older brothers whatever gave her that impression?!
I keep telling her its the choices you make. Not that her older siblings are'bad', they just like to disagree, argue, and do what they want.
Back to the point of my blog: what she said to me when I wanted her to have a bath or shower - "You are the meanest Mommy in the universe."
Should I be offended?
Nah. She's seven. I know she still loves me.
But it got my brain working and I totally thought of a cute picture book. I can totally see the pictures in my head!
Here's the rough draft. I know it still needs some work, a lot of tweaking, but seriously, where we get our ideas for stories..........
It’s time to jump in the tub.
Do the scrub-a-dub-dub.
By order of the Queen:
Even aliens get washed
They zap the grime and bugs get squashed.
Fish and dolphins and whales,
And even mermaids wash their tails.
