“Mommy, you don’t match very well.” Doesn’t sound like a big slam, but it is….I do work so very hard to do things ‘right’ in my children’s eyes. Let’s be honest….I’m supposed to be MOMMY….the one who has the answers to every ‘why’, who can kiss a boo-boo and make it magically better, who can disguise vegetables in the ‘good food’..but, somehow, its the pink lid on the green cup that catches my three year old’s eye. Don’t misunderstand…the mis-match was a blatant foul in Delaney’s eyes. 🙂
And sadly, I instantly want to jump to my own defense…”I was in a hurry”, “You were running late for school”….”Didn’t you see all the neat treats I managed to bring on the flight to California? The extra pair of panties in case of an accident? The High School Musical DVD? The Marshmallows? And, yet, its my inability to match a cup with a lid that gets your attention!
That’s ok…I’ll live to fight another day. You are sleeping and I’m dusting off my Mommy-cape. I promise, tomorrow, all of your cups and lids will match!
