My Perfect Child...Revised....

OK, you guys may remember a few weeks ago my post about Little sweet, and loving, and perfect.

Right...I was drugged by some mysterious person when I wrote that apparently.

Last night I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off being the perfect housewife I know I am. I have dinner cooking and Little A almost ready for bed. She has been fed, bathed, and we are about to get in a diaper and some PJ's.

She HATES her diaper, I get this, I would hate something that bulky and crunchy on my butt too. But she isn't potty trained and is no where near ready for it yet, so she is stuck with it for awhile longer.

I went into her room and got everything we needed to get ready to go to bed. I was just missing ONE thing....Little A. I found her hiding behind the clothes hamper in my closet...butt naked just as I had left her.

I walked into the living room and she followed me in very slowly. I finally get her layed down to put her diaper on and as fast as I could blink she was up and gone. We did this for about 10 minutes before my eyes started bulging out of my pretty little head.

So what do I do to get her attention and make her behave you ask? Well that's simple...the fool proof method of using her full name...she knows she is in trouble and usually cries. It has the same affect on her that spanking does most children. That is until last night......

Me: "A.N.B."

Little A: With the whip of her head and a crooked smile with a handful of attitude, "Yes."

Hubs: *Laughing so hard I'm sure he is about to pee his pants*

Me: *At a loss for words with Little A* "Hubs, shut up and don't encourage her"

Hubs: *Still laughing so hard he can't stand up*

Little A: *Throws the clean diaper in the trash can and goes outside...butt naked*

Me: *Throws in the towel*

Hubs: *Still laughing, takes over*

45 minutes later Little A has a diaper on. Her little attitude came about 10 years earlier than I had prepared myself for. I could have sworn the full name method was a fool proof method. I was proven wrong by me beautiful 15-month-old little girl.
