Careful what you wish for…

Yesterday, I took my daughter out for a little “mommy and me” time. The weather was beautiful so we went to the park and had fun together. After playing for a while. we sat on a bench and chewed the fat for a bit, you know, rebuilt the world a little…

As I was hugging my little princess, I said to her, “Can you please go back to being mommy’s little baby?” I miss the honeymoon phase where kids sleep at night but still want to be hugged all day long. Skye was pretty offended by my request.

“No, I am a big girl!” It’s true, she is taking so much pride in growing up and adding years to her age (yeah, that will pass…)

“I know you are. But just for a little while, it would be nice to pretend you are a little baby.”

We then walked back home, had a nice snack and sat to watch a movie. I thought Skye had forgotten all about our little conversation. But I clearly under-estimated her. As this was the time of the year when dreams come true, I was in for a real treat…

So this morning, I got up and strolled downstairs to make myself a coffee – NOTHING can happen before I have a coffee. I am not even able to talk in a way that makes sense … Well, scrape that, I don’t think I make much sense most of the time. But in the morning, forget it. ME NEED COFFEE. So as I was sitting down, sipping my drink I looked at my daughter’s face. She was all red, and looking funny… I had seen that look before, but where? … When?… Oh…. NNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Skye was still wearing her night time diaper and guess what she was doing? She was doing EXACTLY what I asked the day before: she was being a baby… If you see what I mean…. Fair enough I suppose, I had not specified what baby-behavior I was craving.

I was so grossed out I went back to bed and waited for my husband to find out. After all, it is a time of miracles for him as well…
