Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
This never ever came out of the mouth of a 28 month old daughter this weekend. There is no way it was Lucy who threw adolescent attitude at her mother. She is only a toddler!
Let me set the scene for you...
It took place upstairs in Lucy's bedroom. Mommy had just finished bathing Lucy. Lucy was lying on the bed, while Mommy picked out something for her to wear that day. Just for fun, Mommy started dancing and being silly. She was singing Telephone by Lady Gaga, as it had been in her head all morning. Mommy pulled out all the old school dance moves out of her bag: the Running Man, the Cabbage Patch, and the Sprinkler. Mommy was busting a move, putting on quite a show for Lucy.
Lucy, lying on her back, turns her head real slow to look at Mommy. With one eyebrow raised, and what looked like her very first eyeroll, Lucy says to Mommy in a really slow, annoyed tone...
"You're really, really buggin' me."
Mommy, her dignity flying out the window and eyes misty, left the room immediately, so not to show Lucy how upset she was by her daughter's annoyed tone. Mommy never expected this kind of attitude to come from Lucy for another 10 years, at least. Mommy thought she would be 'cool' in the eyes of her daughter for while longer, but that has proven not to be the case. Lucy is growing up so fast, and is a very independent thinker. It scares the crap out of Mommy just thinking of what the teenage years have in store for her.
