She Is Definitely Her Mother's Daughter

Oh, Lily. That kid kills me. She has such a spirit and I love that but man, she tries me sometimes.


Scene: Lily has just done something mean to Violet for the 100th time.

Mother Chick: "Hey! Go to your room."

Lily: "I wanted to go there anyway, see you later." Happily skips off to bedroom.



Scene: Lily has just done something mean to Violet for the 1000th time.

Mother Chick: "Hey! Give me your DS for that."

Lily: "Here, I was done playing anyway." Hands over DS without batting an eye.


See what I mean?

What's that saying? What doesn't kill me makes me stronger? I think it's more like "What doesn't kill me still makes we want to drink a lot of wine."

Yep, that's definitely it.


  1. Oh my goodness! Haha. My daughter will say, either in the middle of a lecture, or right after, can I still do....and she will name the activity in which was taken from. Like everything I said was gone. They really don't listen, unless you say money or cookie. haha.

  2. Are you living in my life?? I get that same thing!! I need a drink.

  3. Seems girls are "trickier" or maybe smarter :D than boys--my friend get this from her daughter all the time. From my son--nothing, just dissolves intt tears... hmmmm

  4. Oh my, I am the mom of two girls, too! But now they are 25 and almost 29. Best age yet!

  5. My youngest son used to do that until I started sending him to bed early. He wasn't able to hide the horror of that. Especially that time he had to go to bed at 5 p.m. when he was in 4th grade. For my oldest son, all I had to do was look at him with the evil eye and he was all apologetic.


Like every blogger in the universe, I love me some comments. I promise I read and appreciate every single one. I swear! And, if you have a blog, I visit and leave comments in return...I'm good at the reciprocal comments. I'm not, however, good at replying directly back or responding back within the same comment thread. But I will reciprocate your comments, I swear!
