Such a stinker

I just had to share . . .

So I picked Audrey up from school yesterday and told her we had to stop at the store for a few things.  For some reason, this just set her off.  "Nooooooo Maaamaaaa, I just want to go home and eat a snack."  etc etc.  Um, we're going to the store girlfriend.  So she whined her way through the store, came home and continued to throw a fit, got sent to time-out, tried to hit me so she lost television privileges for the night, calmed down for dinner, but then didn't want a bath, then didn't want to get out of the bath, then lost bedtime stories, and I just put her to bed at like 7:10.  GOODNIGHT.  Mommy is done.  She fell asleep right away, so I knew she was overtired.  But I was still so frustrated with her and her behavior.  Then at 2 am she tip-toed into my bed and I asked her what she was doing.  Her reply?  "I just love you the most Mommy and I missed you."  Heart.melting.  So I let her crawl into my bed and just cuddled with her for the rest of the night.  And guess who was the happiest camper to get ready this morning?  Little Miss Whineybutt from last night!  You never know what you're going to get I guess.  :)))  At least it's never boring!

Never a boring moment with a child. I think the being cranky when tired is an inherited gene. I know I have it! You know Audrey loves her mom to the moon and back!
