Well, it only took me 4 years, but I've finally joined one of those elite clubs for mothers.
What club is that, you may ask?!?
..... the "Meanest Mom in the World" club.
Ella spent the night with Kari over at Mimi's last night. She went to bed late and then got up early and had a very full morning.
By the time she got home, she was exhausted. Maggie is sick and was getting extra attention of which Ella thought she herself was the only rightful owner. So I made Ella go to her room for a rest where she spent a solid 15 minutes crying, screaming, and declaring the injustice of the situation... which ended in her declaring my membership in no uncertain terms, "You are the meanest mom in the whole wide wurld" and then promptly falling asleep for a much needed nap.
Later this afternoon when my mom came over I told her all about it.
She stuck up her hand for a high 5! I'm so excited about this new era...... just waiting for the day there are 3 more drama queens and some hormones involved! Woohoo!
