Drama Princess...

Last night Emma and I stayed up late to make Christmas Cookies (see photos on Buttercups). I told her before we went to bed that i would be waking her up early to take a shower because it was too late to shower. We brushed our teeth, read books and went to bed. When it was time to wake up (about 5:45 am) I went to her room to wake her up. I whispered in her ear 'Emma, it's time to get up and take a shower.'. She said 'No mommy, you said I could shower in the morning, it's still dark.'. I said 'I know Emma, it is morning the sun just isn't up yet.' She promptly tore the covers back, jumped out of bed, stormed down the hallway with clenched fists, went to the back door, pulled back the curtain, pointed outside and said, 'See mommy, it's dark outside, it's not morning yet!' How could I argue? I said, 'OK, go back to bed.' and I started back down the hall to the bathroom. She stopped me halfway, rubbed her tummy and said. 'Mommy, can you make me something to eat, I'm really hungry.' I told her that we had to take a shower first and then she could eat. Then my agreeable little girl said 'OK mommy.' She is so darn cute and I love that she knows (or at least thinks she does) how to prove her point.
Her dance recital was this weekend. Still working on a video so stay tuned.

She must have inherited your incredible gift for the persuasive argument. I seem to recall a similar arguement about an orange shirt and red shorts......

What a great blog - I actually knew someone who used the "just ducky" response but I have never heard the explanation and I love it! I have two little princess grandaughters so I understand! check out my blog - happyheartprincess.blogspot.com
