Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Emmy crying, going rigid, and being completely difficult about getting on jammies after her bath.

Me {stern teaching voice}: Emmy, we get dressed after our bath. Please help Mommy.

Emmy continues crying, going rigid, and being completely difficult.

Me {stern teaching voice}: Emmy, you must let Mommy get you dressed. Please lay still and help Mommy.

Emmy still crying, going rigid, and being completely difficult. 

Me {stern teaching voice}: Emmy, I cannot help you when you don't use words. I don't understand why you are so upset. Please use words.

Emmy {yelling through tears, still stiff as a board}: No! No! No!

how nice of you to have a stern teaching voice, and not use my personal apologize afterwards, mommy's going to kill you voice. haha. usually at some point i make the same whiny cry voice they are and they think it's weird, then annoying, then funny. making fun of them is the only way i can cope sometimes ;)

What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
