Diva Bliss

I'm in my office and I see some little chickadee coming down the stairs in her oversized Chicago Bears sleepshirt.

I look at her; she knows she'll get a point taken away for coming downstairs after she's been put to bed.

How does a seven-year-old Diva work it so she actually GETS a good point instead of having me take one away from her?

She looks at me with those hazelly-puppy-dog eyes, through her ratty blonde hair she rarely brushes and she says this in a whispery hug-me-forever voice:

"I just felt like I needed some more extra love."

Sounds to me like both of you came out ahead in that deal. Point-wise, I mean.

Eileen said...

Who can't use a little extra love?

1 plus twins said...

ha ha she must be related to my one son!! he pulls that shit all the time or he will say "mommy i just thought that you could use another hug and kiss" too funny!

Manic Mom said...

DD--everyone's ahead with this one. I hugged her, took her upstairs and she grabbed me by the neck and yelled, I GOT YOU! ANd said she was the hook and I was the fish. It was all a ruse! Ha. But she did go right to bed after that little bit of extra love!

And speaking of love, Eileen, you know what else I can use! And hoping it's happening soon!

1 Plus--we've got sweetie pies, huh?

You should meet my lower lip pouting, blue eye fluttering teenage son! Man that kid could sell me a bridge.

Manic Mom said...

Jennifer--what do you need a bridge for?

It doesn't take much.
