PPPPPMS

Here's a funny little video for you. When Baby Girl first asked me what these were I told her they were 'napkins'.  (I am always trying to be completely truthful with my children even when it comes to sensitive topics such as feminine hygiene and where babies really do come from.  I also keep it on their level though- I am talented like that). "What?! Napkins?!" She asked. Thinking, I was surmising, that these were unlike any napkins she had seen before. She started calling them wipes. A common misconception I suppose. So I set her straight. "They are like napkins for your bottom when you grow up" I followed up with "We'll chat more about this when you are about 13."

So today when she found the 'napkins-for-one's-bottom' in the drawer, she declared they were hers. She is such a bossy little two year old. Just today she insisted on grape juice instead of OJ even though she had clearly asked for OJ first and was only unsatisfied once she had seen the 2nd grapey option. So being the patient, kind, reverent and thrifty parent that I am I poured her a 2nd cup of juice (this time grape- my personal fave btw), and thought I would just stick the first one in the fridge for later. Now she was upset about the cup going in the fridge. No she didn't want the juice inside it, she wanted me to put grape juice into the original cup. ARGH! She had just gone too far. No WAY was I giving in to that one. I said no and she hung her head so low that I thought perhaps her chin was attached with velcro to her chest and cried her way to her room. Perhaps PMS is coming early for her? I'll be on the look out!
