The charming Lady Tramaine tagged me do to an 8 things you didn't know about me meme. I'm pretty sure there are no secrets between us at this point, so I'm going to do 8 things about daughter.
1.) She will be crying and then switch to singing and then crying again within a 60 second timespan. Just like her momma!
2.) She insists on clutching whatever her favorite toy of the day was as she falls asleep. A few weeks ago it was her purse. And when I went to check on her I found that she had scooped out and smeared a large pot of glitter lipgloss all over her freshly washed hair and body. Now, just like the airports, we check all handbags for liquids and gels before bedtime.
3.) Daughter and son have bonded due to my laziness. I often send son in to take care of daughter; bring her a pacifier, cup of water, kiss her boo boos or smell for a poop. I used to feel guilty but it's pretty damn cute to watch them together now.
4.) When she wants me to pick her up she says, "I hold you mama?"
5.) She wakes me up every morning by sitting on my pillow and singing. Because she has a big brother her song choice is usually "Dananananananan batman batman"
6.) Her favorite tantrum trick is to lob her pacifier as far as she can and then wail, "my pacy my pacy" and reach for it in a way that makes strangers think I chucked the damned thing away from her.
7.) If she doesn't like the song I'm playing in the car she'll yell "No mama nooooooo!" until I change it. There is a good chance I may have to disown her for hating Patsy Cline.
8.) Everything she says ends in an upward inflection that makes it sound like a question. It's like she's British. Dora? Kitty? Donut? And when she asks for things like chocolate milk or cookies she'll say "Lil bit mama? Lil bit? (deep breath) choc-late milk?" and use her hands to demonstrate the lil bit.
And of course she has my heart forever. Now tell me 8 things about your kids!
