I'm Just Sayin'...

Dining out with a 3 year old just plain sucks.

Ah, I'm sorry. But, I found her charming when I had lunch with the two of you. ;-)

What did she do to spoil dinner?

Well, for starters she declared to anyone who would listen, "I'm the President's daughter!," which would be charming except she said it at least 15 times. (Not to mention that I have no love children with our President, thank you very little!)

She had to go to the bathroom, so I took her. She ran into a stall and locked herself in before I could stop her. Well, she peed all over the floor and used her skirt to mop it up. Of course, I didn't have a change of clothes because she has been doing great with the potty training of late. I told her that she would just have to be in her underwear and her top, but she threw such a tissy fit, I gave in and rinsed out the damn thing as best I could and she put it on- quite wet.

Then, she ran away from me and I chased her, screaming and giggling (her, not me) three times around the restaurant. We left shortly after, obviously. At least we got to eat.

Good thing for her that she went to bed easily, otherwise I might have had to change my philosophy on spanking her little butt red!

Oy... Hope you all sleep well tonight and that tomorrow brings a spirit of cooperation and peace in your household. ;-)

Preach it sister. You heard my kids screeching through the phone... we need a mommy night out! :)

Oh, that is so funny! Maybe your three year old and mine should get together. They sound like kindred spirits.
