Bad Mommy

I spent part of the day cleaning today and much of it on the phone catching up with family members that I haven't talked to in a while. Miss Missy is so great. She pretty much occupied herself today playing dress up and giving her babies a bath in the sink. Whatever makes her happy!

Miss Missy has been hinting around A LOT about:

Oh how I wishes that I had a sister to play with.


Oh Mommy, I don't have anybody to play with.


Oh Mommy, I don't have anybody to sleep with me. Runnin' Man and Sir Talks-A-Lot sleep together and you and daddy sleep together, but I don't have nobody to sleep with.

Now that last one usually comes in right at bed time when Mr. Sandman should be sprinkling his sleepy dust and angels should be singing her to sleep, but instead tears are welling in her eyes while she's longing for a sleeping companion........ and a few more minutes of awake time.

Now everyone collectively say AWWWWWW!

Meanwhile, I'm tossing her one of the thousands of teddy bears from her pet net and saying, "Not gonna happen sweetie!"


SO, we're folding some laundry in the boys' room this morning and she's so happy to be helping mom.

Oh, isn't it just great when they're young and doing household chores brings a smile to their faces and they'll do anything to please you? Yeah, that goes away at about 7.

Well, she is bantering on and on about how she is doing such a great job helping with the boys clothes and how they never keep they're room clean, and us girls always do things so much better. Then I hear:

"Right, mom?" Not really listening to what she is saying because she has talked non-stop for 30 minutes.

"Right," I say.

"Girls are awesome, right mom?"

Right, Girls are SO awesome,"

"And Boys SUCK!"

I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't help laughing uncontrollably at the horrible thing that came out of her mouth. It is undoubtedly a word that she has heard me use a many times before.


Just another shining example of why I need to censor my language more.

Oh and for those wondering, As of Tuesday, I was able to vacuum my floor again Whoo, Thanks Hubs! ;-)

I stumbled upon your blog, and this entry made me chuckle.

I love when we realize that our children are saying words we don't want them to say, because WE SAY THEM!!! :-)

My 9 year old recently became so exasperated with my 7 year old that she said, "are you freaking kidding me?"

My mom of the year award was abruptly taken from me.

Sucks... such a good word... coming out of the mouth of a sweet baby, though? Not so much ;)

Great post!

It's so hard not to laugh but sometimes you just can't help it.
