We had a full on Stand-Off here last night…
I told LG she had to take three more bites of her chicken and cheese quesadilla.
She stared me straight in the eyes and proceeded to pour her glass of milk onto it.
When I told her now she had to eat three bites of chicken and cheese quesadilla with milk all over it,
she started to mushed it up into pieces,
then dumped it off her plate onto the table.
I wasn’t budging.
We sat there for a good 20 minutes playing chicken.
Who would give in first?
Taegan was witnessing the whole thing so I had to set the precedent.
She took her three bites.
And then just to stick it to me she said, she liked quesadillas with milk all over it.
Earlier that day this is what she handed me…
I had just cleaned the up stairs.
Made beds, put away clothes, etc.
She didn’t like her outfit.
She was “ITCHY”.
She is THREE!
This is going to be a loooong 18 years.
While we are on the subject of my hard-headed, willful, free-sprited girls…
I’ll leave you with this.
I want this for each of their rooms.
Some days they make me want to pull my hair out.
(or have a very strong alcoholic drink)
They are strong and stubborn and some day…
They will change the world.
