One Brief Shining Moment

Lately Judah has been turning into a super-whiny and irritating guy.

He is really into changing his mind a thousand times--I want juice, no I don't want juice, no I WANT juice, no I DON'T want juice, etc.

And anytime things don't go his way (which is a lot--no lunch! no dinner! no nap! no bedtime! no leaving the park! no going inside! no going outside!) this demon face is sure to rear its ugly head:

So let's just say Mother's Day was no picnic for me.  Or, as my friend put it--every day is mother's day!  Ha ha ha ha.

But there was one shining moment today that I will hold on to forever in my memory bank of treasures.  I was getting ready for church in the morning, wearing a dress (which is rare for me), and had just pulled my hair back in a pony-tail (also rare), when I hear Judah's little voice behind me saying,

"Mommy, you look like a princess!"

What?  Wow, I never hear that word.  All day, every day I only hear about policemen, robbers, batman, robin, jokerman, and the occasional fireman.  So of course it made me a princess.

And I can think of no better mother's day gift than that.

Is Judah 3? Because this sounds very 3-ish. At least you got to be a princess for one day, though!

Judah is 3 months away from being 3. And it's funny how I've never felt like a princess until that moment! Kids say the darnest things.

I concur with CM. this is very typical 3 year old behavior. Doesn't make it less frustrating though!
