Cleaning the house got really old, really fast for Aubrey today. Emma has been a real trouper and has been especially good…probably had a lot to do with the cupcake bribe AND the fact that her birthday party is tomorrow.
Aubrey had a good time dusting the t.v. but was ready to loll about after that. She made a HUGE mess with her crayons and markers and we ONCE again came to a crossroads where it was clean or be punished. After my last, “You’d better clean up, or else…” Aubrey screamed, “UGGGGH! Just leave the house MESSY! WHY does it have to be clean all the time???”
Me: I suggest you check your attitude and stop talking to me like that or you are going to be in BIG. BIG. TROUBLE. Got it, Big Sister?
Aubrey: (MUCH quieter) Ughh, FINE then…I’ll just QUIT BEING YOUR SISTER!”
