OCD Little Jurls

Sam has been an angel this week. Of course, we're all still living without television (until her bedtime) which is a painful sacrifice, but worth it. Last night she talked me into climbing inside her play house (no small feat for a woman with birthing hips) for a puppet show with a Scarlett O'Hara barbie and a Little Mermaid jewelery box (don't ask). After the 45 second puppet show she put her sticky little arms around my neck and declared, "I can't get enough Momma! Can't get enough!"

Isn't that just too sweet? And isn't that just too irritating? And she ain't lying, I'm that kid's favorite person despite my screaming, time-out giving, and accidentally throwing toys away, parenting style. It's a blessing and a curse. A blessing because I get more cuddle bug time with her than anyone and she genuinely enjoys the pleasure of my company (that's more than I can say for other members of our household). A curse because she is up my ass 24/7 and anything in your ass for that extended amount of time is bound to be an irritant. Anyone know a good hemorrhoid doctor? I need to have a four year old removed....

I guess we should enjoy it while they still think we are cool. Because, my ten year old likes to give me the eye roll and sigh ALL THE FREAKING TIME!!! Believe me it is much nicer when they want to be around you. Although the down side would be that last night from midnight on, I slept wedged between my younger two, with my arms pinned above my head (both have sinus infections). Guess what husband said this morning...

"When did they get in bed? They weren't there all night were they?"

Thank God we don't own a gun. (just kidding, well sort of, maybe a grazed toe might wake his a** up when the kids come crying in the middle of the night.)

Scout- In know you're right. and when I'm not being irritated I'm melting right through my gewey center from the warmth of her love. But, damn, get out of my bed! I think you must be married to my husband because he says the exact same stupid crap. sometimes i think it's an elaborate ruse.....
