Mother of The Year, indeed

Can any of you more experienced moms please weigh in on this?

LittleG: Mom, these shoes are too tight (use your whiney voice for best effect).
I will fix them when we get to Nana's .
LittleG: Mom, these shoes are too loose!
Me: How can your shoes be both too tight and too loose at the same time?
LittleG: Because you won't fix my shoes.
LittleG, do you realize that tight and loose are opposites? It is not physically possible for something to be both too tight and too loose at the same time.
LittleG: Nuh huh. Because YOU. ARE. THE. WORST. MOM. EVER!

All of this at the tender age of 6. Before, by the way, 8 o'clock in the morning. On a Monday.

Thanks, Mom, for taking one for the team this week. I'm sure you are having a delightful day already. Thank heavens you quit being the worst mom ever about a decade ago. I guess it's my turn to take the reins.

Of course, peace reigns for now! Only once have I invoked the "Shall I call your daddy?" card!

I never suspected it, but I have to side with the kid here. Lord knows I am closer to her lot in life than yours as a parent of a six year old. However, I think I can help. She actually had no idea the shoes were too tight, she was checking in with you, and you caved. That's when she decided to JAB! ...she also read your previous blog about not keeping her warm enough to be a good mommy. She's onto you. She's part Ogg-woman, and you know it. Finally, let us appreciate her/your other half, LITTLE G! Come on?!?! She is testing her G-half against your Ogg/Fenley half, and I think I may have to award this round to G.

She toooold you!


PS: I have also read that she is growing quickly. That will not stop. And just ask my mom how hard it is to pull my ear--she can't. HA!

And don't you just love her for it?
