Your two year old repeatedly calls you "Jesuit". Maybe not exactly, but it sure sounded like it. All you can think is this a slightly more sophisticated racial slur referring to your excessive frugality. Even your two year old makes fun of you for being cheap.
You didn't think about the implications of washing a Cinderella princess dress in the regular laundry. And then, your whole family's wardrobe was glitter-fied.
It's a bit of an understatement to say that your kids are not "morning people". (Yes, they really are asleep like that on the couch.)
An hour after you put your two year old down for bed, she emerged from her room, footies in disarray with a pronouncement, "I need go potty." Pretty awesome considering you haven't even touched night-time training.
Your two year old spends the better part of her day in her older sister's closet assembling new outfits. Her fashion sense is other-worldly. (Although, her ensembles are still probably better than her mom's full-body-red maternity outfits....even with the socks and sandals on the wrong feet.)
And let's not overlook the "extremely safe" idea the middle child had to sit on the fireplace in a stroller meant for baby dolls. Don't think for a second the two year old didn't try at least twice to push her down during the taking of this snapshot.
When the two year old emerged after breakfast this morning wearing this get-up, your five year old took one look at her, gasped, and said, "Sarah! You looked wonderful!!!" I guess this is all the encouragement she needs to change outfits 482 times daily.
You cannot say it enough, but the friendship between your girls has made every frustration of parenting completely worth it.
Once again, you "relish" your two year old's independence when she brings a gallon of milk off the top shelf of the fridge to you in the living room for a refill.
You told your five year old after school that she could either clean her room or take a nap, knowing full well she wouldn't choose the nap. Five minutes later, you checked on her because you heard some serious snoring from down the hall... Next time you tell her to clean her room at 4:30pm, you'll consider a different alternative choice.
