Me: Sweetie, lay down so Mommy can change your diaper.
Brenia: No.
Me: Please, lay down and get your diaper on.
Brenia: No.
Me: It’s bedtime. You need to get your jammies on and a clean diaper.
Brenia: No.
Me: Mommy has a headache and I’m very stressed out today. It would really help if you would cooperate. Now. Please, lay down.
Brenia: No.
Me: That worked well. I’m changing your diaper now. Lay down.
Brenia: No.
(picture me wrestling with my child)
Me: Does it make me a terrible Mommy that I’m really glad it’s bedtime?
Brenia: No.

Good. Quick—guess how old my kid is!

  1. she is 2 or 18..my 18 year old is just as disagreeable!

  2. Definitely sounds like she’s around the age of two. And as an 18 yr old, I resent Debby’s comment 😉

  3. Rachael, dont be insulted, Debby can be JUST as disagreeable at times….ooops, did I say that out loud?

  4. You guys are too funny! (and right, almost) She’ll be 2 on Sunday!

  5. Well, Happy early Birthday Brenia!
