Brielle doesn't talk much, but she lets you know what she wants. Today after she got dressed I tried to grab a hair pretty for her hair--I thought I'd try one instead of a ponytail like normal. Well I grabbed one that matched and went to put it in her hair---and that's when our second DIVA was officially born! (Raya's always been a diva LOL)
Oh my, Brielle ripped that hair pretty out and threw it on the floor with all her might! Then she started pointing and grunting at all the hair pretty choices. Every time I showed her one she screamed and threw herself on the ground---it was quite a sight. So finally I lifted her up to try and calm her down and she reached over and grabbed the most inappropriate hair pretty in the whole bunch---a huge (too big for the amount of hair she has) EASTER PEEPS hair bow haha. I told her "no, that's too big for you ---and it's for Easter" and she proceeded to wail and throw herself around in the world's most dramatic fashion.
Finally I just gave in---I stuck the giant Easter bow in her hair. She then stopped crying, gave it a knowing "pat" on her head, and then smiled at me with the biggest "haha, I just got my way!" grin that I've ever seen!
I'm so screwed with these two as teens :-P
As if she hadn't already rubbed her "win" in my face enough, she then went to the living room and sat like this---tell me she isn't deliberately rubbing that hair clip in my face!! What a stinker.
|"What? This little old bow? It's nothing special...."|
And if you're wondering about Miss Raya, she still has the nasty looking sore on her tongue, but I officially think she's playing me too---you'd think with a sore like that she'd want to eat yogurt, etc....soft things. No, she only eats animal cookies, goldfish crackers, cereal, and brownies haha. I told my mom that I think she's just more motivated to eat through the pain when it's something she loves, because there is no way that goldfish crackers are "softer" than yogurt! :-P
Sorry, that's all I've got for you today! I feel like crap today---my arthritis really hurts so I don't make it off the couch much...and I think I might have a little bug on top of it. Ugh. Hope your Tuesdays are going much better!
