I was with a few ladies recently that don’t really know me that well. We are around each other for school functions and things, but they don’t know me well enough to realize how sarcastic I am. And they were asking how many kids I have, so I listed off the older 3 and then trying to joke around I said, “And then that rotten 2 year old that is always causing problems.” And all three of them looked at me with the most horrified expressions on their faces. As if I had just said, “Do you know who I love? Satan.”
Ugh. I tried to explain that I was kiddin’ and that I really do like my rotten 2 year old, but I’m pretty sure they will still report me to CPS. I was trying to play off my embarrassment about the times I’ve taken Kitty with me to PTA things and she has stolen the pizza we were trying to sell, or attempted to choke her best friend to death over said friend’s SpongeBob umbrella. Obviously, I failed.
But, you guys get me, right? When I say that Kitty is the naughtiest child on the planet, you know that I still go into her room at night and stare at her adorable fat little face, and want to pick her up out of her crib and kiss her cheeks? And when I tease about The Boy looking constipated in every picture he has ever taken, that I would still gladly jump in front of a bus for him?
Anyway, now that I got that off my chest, today as Kitty was eating her breakfast I couldn’t get over how cute and grown up she looked. So, I grabbed my camera as she happily devoured some applesauce.
