Annie started acting up while she and Jemma were in the tub last night, so I opened my mouth to remind her nicely to use her Inside Voice. She saw me start to speak and did this THING she is doing lately that drives me crazy: she let out a loud, long shriek to block out my words because she knew she wasn't going to want to hear what I had to say. (When she does this and I reprimand her for screaming, she looks all innocent and goes, "You SCARED me!")

Things deteriorated and when I told her it was time to get out of the tub, she started flailing her arms and legs around, splashing water everywhere, Making Things Worse, so I calmly helped her dry off and then sent her to her room to calm down and put on her pajamas by herself. She slammed the bathroom door, still talking back to me as she marched away, and as I kneeled down to finish rinsing the bubbles out of Jemma's hair, she paused a moment in her tirade, then yelled,

"And your underwear is stupid, too!"


  1. Well...maybe stop bathing her in your granny panties and maybe these comments won't come your way.....

  2. aaaahhhh... children... always giving us those super warm fuzzies...
