Outta the Mouths of Babes: Mean Mom Edition

My dear darling five-year-old is mad at me at the moment, because I wouldn't let her rip out the page she drew on in my planner to give to her friend. So what does she do to let me know how mad she is?

Why, draw me a picture in which I have only one arm, of course!

Which reminded me that I have some Outta the Mouths of Babes to post...

After a time-out-for-hitting-big-sister session:

ANNELIE [glaring hard at me with what she calls her Hot Laser Eyes]: I'm thinking very angry things at someone right now.

ME: Oh yeah? What kind of angry things?

ANNELIE: Really bad ones, like swear words. I'm thinking them at someone. [screws up face to glare even harder]

ME: Oh, wow, that does sound angry. What kind of words?

ANNELIE: I'm thinking words like stupid and sucker at someone.

ME: Ahhh, I see.

[sometimes is is SO hard trying to keep from laughing]


GRACIE: Sometimes when you get really mad at us, I wish we could go live with Grandma.

ME: Sometimes when I get really mad at you, I wish you would go on a long vacation to Grandma's.

GRACIE [laughs hysterically]: That works.


ANNELIE [pausing during playtime for a hug and a moment of sweetness]: I love you, Mommy.

ME: I love you, too.

ANNELIE: I love you even when you be mean.


And I love her, even when she's giving me Hot Laser Eyes. Oh the joys of being a mom.

Happy Wednesday, folks!

LOL! The "swear" words remind me of one of the Ramona books, when she announces that she's so mad that she will utter a swear word, and then screams "GUTS" and everyone laughs

Your girls are already a force to be reckoned with. Watch out, world!

Yeah I heard you were, like, wicked mean :) Amelia had this angry, pissed off look that, sadly, is 100% my fault because from the very first time she busted it out, I realized it was the exact face I make when I'm pissed off.

That picture is awesome! I'm glad I'm not the only mom who gets the laser eyes. My daughter also shrieks at me and I can't understand what she is saying. :)
