My two (almost) three year old is walking around our house right now with a paper bag over her head. She just peed all over the bathroom floor and then cheerfully announced that "pee pee goes in the potty." Right before that, she framed her brother for a crime he didn't commit and provoked him into an "I had it first" argument. Her father has her on video, wide-awake last night at 11:30 p.m. He asked her: Where are you supposed to be? She said: In bed! He said: Where are you? She said: I'm here!" He said "Why?" She said: "Cause!" Earlier incidents today include washing hands with WAYYYYYYY too much soap and not enough rinsing, pulling off half a roll of toilet paper and many, many, whining, screaming fits.... which explains why she is currently walking around sans shirt with a cup of diet coke and some seriously tangled hair. Because, really, she has more willpower and stubborn determination than her mother could possibly ever possess.
Her name means: Gift from God. Can anyone say irony?
