She’s going to end up in therapy anyways…

15 May

I know that labeling and comparing children is wrong. I went to college, I took Psychology classes and I get the basics on how to screw a kid up. I’m going to go ahead and label and compare my twins anyways. TR is totally and completely defiant and mischievous. She goes above and beyond your average two year old limit testing on a regular basis. It’s as if she has this side to her that just has to mess with the adults in her life. She doesn’t just throw her food off her high chair tray to see what happens like her brother does. TR will specifically request oatmeal or bananas and blueberries just so she can smush it all in her hair and then fling it all across the room. As the other two kids get wide eyed and let out big UH-OHS! All you hear from little Miss T are her giggles of self satisfaction.
At the playground we go to every morning there is a large opening with a drop that scares the daylights out of me. I have trained the twins to not go near the opening because it is dangerous. J steers clear of it at all costs, but not my 21 pound angel. Every chance she gets she will grab my attention as she dangles her body over the edge while hysterically laughing. She will even yell out to me, “Other way?” Yes, other way, you damn well know your supposed to go the other way because this way freaks Mommy out. But you know that don’t you little girl. I might as well dye her hair purple and pierce her nose now.
TR also has a special capacity for intense volume. By that I mean she can scream louder than any human child on the planet. If you don’t believe me then I dare you to take her to the Coffee Bean and refuse to buy her a chocolate milk. My oldest daughter was a screamer and a vomiter so I’m no sissy when it comes to evil glares from strangers. But when TR decides to flex her vocal pipes it’s quite a display.
Since I’ve already labeled her and compared her to her twin I’m going to go ahead and predict what she will be when she grows up.

I’m going to go with a) an Opera Singer b) The President of the United States c) My Clone


We’re you labeled as a kid? Did it stick?

    It’s not like she’s dumping a bucket of water over some kids’ head – what are you worried about?

      Are you implying that some of my other children may also be somewhat colorful?

        No one ever did see that little boy at school after that fateful day. . .
