Hey, bloom, give the rose a kiss on your way out

Yes, that's right. The bloom is off the rose. I will illustrate by relating the following conversation this morning:

Girl Child: [throws her socks up in the air in the kitchen while I have my coffee and NY Times]

Me: Don't throw things around in the kitchen.

GC: Why not?

Me: Because the kitchen is probably the most dangerous room in the house.

GC: Why?

Me: Because there are things that could burn you here, things that could cut you, things that you could knock over and . . . [GC walks out]

Wife in dining room: What was Pappa saying to you?

GC to wife: I don't know, something about the kitchen. [tone, according to my wife, like a 13 year old]

Remember, she just turned four. I am so screwed.

*LOL* at least you realise already. I think it came as a total shock to my father.

Oh NOOOOO! Better get your attitude going right back! Just wait until the teen years hit!

Yeah... I feel the exact same, yesterday my 2 year old told me he doesn't like me anymore, because I turned off his Thomas the Train DVD. Of course the grudge only lasted about 15 minutes, but still...

Maybe you're just getting it now and she'll be over it by then? :)

What if the second one is just as "spunky"? Then you'll really have your hands full! :)
