She's Weird, But I Love Her

When I was little, one of my mom's favorite sayings was, "I don't have to worry about someone kidnapping you. They would bring you back." I always thought that was really mean, but now- I understand.

I have a four year old. That's a weirdo. And a whiner. And a tattletale. And needs to be entertained by me, all the time. And won't eat anything but pizza, peanut butter, and cheese cubes. And knows everything. And argues about everything else.

I have a four year old. That is beautiful. And smart. And funny. And tells me 50 times a day that she loves me. And thanks me for her peanut butter. And gives the best hugs and kisses. And makes up silly games. And forces me to slow down.

I have a four year old. And I love her. And if anyone does kidnap her- please bring her back.

After I get some alone time.

I feel the exact same way.

Except "she" is a "he" and his name is Cole!

I tell Princess that same thing all the time :-)
I told her she has to finish memorizing her address so that she can tell them where to send her back home too when they realize what a turkey she is :-)

What a great post...so true! I have the exact same little girl living in my house, too.
(I'm here from a link on a blogher ad.)

Don't think that just because she gets older that is gets any better. 13 year old daughters are hormonal, so that explains a little of it, but not all of it. Gotta love the drama.

I've so said the same thing about my kids. lol

Shoot, I've been saying that about my son for the last 7 or so years! No, not the 'bring him back!', the 'they'd return him in about 2 hours'.. 6 more years & counting with that one..
