Played... by the Four Year Old


So Aunty E... you wanna borrow her? I'm thinking a month long trip to Australia might do her good... but only if you don't send her back with new layers of evil!

Last night she lay in my lap staring at the ceiling and statesd quite fatalistically: "God made me this way. I'm BAD."

And I thought, what a horrible mother you are Melinda! Your child thinks she is innately bad!!! ACK!

So I begin telling her how wonderfully sweet she is and how she just doesn't listen some times and even her very own, darling mother sometimes does bad things... but we aren't BAD.... and it dawns on me....

I just got PLAYED by a four year old!

What she meant was, she can't help it. It's not her fault. She gave me the most guileless, innocent look... the one you know is completely fake. And grinned at me. A devilish little grin.

Hate to break this to you dear but if you just now realized that she's played you then that is the biggest play of all.

SO, wait... does bad still mean good? Just check with Abby because I have the feeling she's writing the rules of the game...

She's smart as a whip that one. I think that's a good thing. Sounds like you're keeping up with her...

Hmmmm I've heard that around here before. I never looked at it that the boys were playing me. I better get with the program and QUICK. Thanks for the head's up on a different perspective. Little stinkers.

Much love from NJ,
