Last night on the way home from swim lessons Chatty announces "I'm so smart ... God made me so smart." No self esteem problems here, but maybe we should spend a little more time on humility, just a thought.
Once we got home Miss Smartypants couldn't remember how to follow directions which resulted in a lot of yelling by me. I am not proud of this and apologized later to the girls. I told Chatty as I tucked her in that I will try to be a better mommy today if she can try to follow directions a little better today. She agreed and all was well. Fast forward to this morning when she wasn't following directions again ... In a stern voice (I wasn't yelling this time ... I was trying to be calm) I told her she needed to get her teeth brushed and clothes on. She says to me "I thought you were going to be a nicer mommy today!" God did make her very smart, so much so that she has figured out how to push every single one of my buttons!
