As many of you know, I have adorable children, but I feel like I'm going to have the most trouble with Hannah.
Two examples of why.
I was watching a friend's baby today, and Hannah came over to sit on my lap.
Hannah: Mama, we need a baby.
Me: Well, I like babies, but I think we have enough people in our family, baby.
Hannah: We need a baby too though.
Me: Not every family has a baby. I like our family just how it is.
Hannah: But we don't have a baby. Talisha has a baby, his name is Kale, he got lots of presents for his birthday. Mama, when is my birthday? I want presents too!
Me: *sighs in relief at the toddler ADD rescue*
The second example is what worries me.
She walks over to me, with a sad pathetic look on her face. She held up a white My Little Pony doll.
Hannah: Mama, My pony is sad. She doesn't have a friend.
Me: She could be friends with your big pony, Pinkie Pie. (a giant my little pony that sings and dances, and tells stories)
Hannah: No, she wants a pony friend that is short like her, and pink. (brings out the cute irresistible face) Mama, can we go to Wal-Mart and get a friend for my pony, so she isn't sad anymore?
How do you say no to that?! Seriously (or, srsly if you want silly internet talk)!
I have absolutely no clue where she learned to use cuteness to ask for things. LOL I never try to be cute when I want something. Ok so yeah, I totally do that. But she's only 4 and she's better at it than I am. How fair is that?
Thanks for reading.
