oh, the pain!

Kids can do funny things to your heart. They can make it swell 1000 times its normal size, they can melt it into a huge old puddle on the floor, and they can break it in a million pieces. Alexis did the latter today. I thought they weren't supposed to say stuff like this until they were teenagers!


Alexis: Mom, why does Tarzan have a monkey mother?

Me: Because his mom and dad died and the monkey found him so she became his new mother.

(Long pause while she contemplates all the ways she can hurt me)

A: Oh, I want to get a new mom too, cause you're going to died later so I'll have a new mommy and it won't be you.


I hope her new mother has a heart of steel.

So what did you say to her after that? Did you cry?

Ohhhh...Don't worry Lisa! Jake has already said to me numerous times..."Mom! I hate you! You're mean to me!" Have you got that one yet? Even though I know I'm not supposed to be my child's best friend...I do find it hard that my 3-year-old can hate me. (I thought those words were supposed to come with age...like 16-years of age. Oh well...guess I'll just go cry in my room...in the dark. :)

I don't know. what am I supposed to say to that? We were driving so we couldn't really sit down and have a heart to heart, but I told her that saying stuff like that makes mom sad.

Preston has told me that he doesn't like me a couple of times, but it usually doesn't last long. It never feels very good though!
