See this one? This one’s making Wonder Woman and me a bit nutty these days.
I mean, what with the screaming and the grunting and the growling and the “NO!”-ing and the doing everything you ask her not to do and the not doing everything you ask her to do? C’mon, where’s the hidden video camera? This is all just an elaborate prank on two burnt-out parents, right? Haha! OK, good one! Now make her stop before I shove an apple in her mouth and duct tape her to a wall!
Fortunately for her, in between the near-constant hissy fits, she does somewhat offset things by being cute and adorable and funny … like during the moment captured above.
On Tuesdays, it’s my job to drop the kids off at their respective schools, and since Zan’s start time is 8:15, and Jayna’s start time is 9:00, Daddy has 45 minutes to kill with The Girl Who Eats Like A Flea. And I discovered some months ago that 45 minutes is just enough time to take Flea Girl out to breakfast at a local eatery, where she not only makes funny faces into the camera, but also eats most of an enormous pancake, bacon and some of my wheat toast.
And since I usually can’t get her to eat anything at home on Tuesday mornings, and because I subsequently worry that she’s going to have the Hungry Horrors at school and tell her teachers that Mommy and Daddy don’t feed her, I feel justified in dining out with her several times per month because at least I got her to eat something, so don’t you dare judge me, people.
We’ve sort of become regulars at the place, and all the ladies who work there treat Little Miss Thing like she’s the Queen of Sheba … because she’s so cute and adorable and funny.
Clearly, they’ve not been exposed to her alter ego, The Snarling Demon From Hell.
