Dear God, It's Me . . . Annie

Dear God,

It's me.  Annie.

I realize that you only give people what they can handle.  But seriously, after my day yesterday, I am beginning to think that you hold me in high regard.  Thank you, sincerely, thank you  for the flattery, but I have a question for you.  Do you think that I am a superstar or something?  Is it possible that maybe, just maybe, you may have me confused with someone else? Someone who has buckets of patience, for instance.  Just asking.

Yesterday, when Ellerie decided to run around the house in her usual birthday suit, I was OK.  I was even OK when she colored all over her naked body with a blue sharpie marker that she found in her sister's school supplies. (By the way, blue is definitely her color. ) When she peed on the floor two times instead of in her designated potty, I didn't bristle.  I just looked at it as an opportunity to shine my floors.  But, when she tried to stick a carrot from the refrigerator on her, you know . . . hoo-ha,  and then said, "Wook mom!  It's cold!"  that, that put me over the edge. ( I suppose it could have been worse, though.  At least she didn't channel Linda Blair.)

So, dear God, I am writing to let you know that I can not handle a daughter that has a future in Girls Gone Wild videos.  I am a strong woman, but not that strong.

In the future, please direct my little angel to keep her veggies on her plate, where they belong.  I will continue to do my part to keep her in clothes.




  1. crazy girl!!! she sounds so much like my alyssa, who always has marker all over her body! Last night i let her take a bath with will for the first time. Apparently she has never seen his penis before and almost grabbed it (i stopped her) and said, "what is that? is that ew?" and I said "yes alyssa, thats ew. don't touch that. it's your brother's."

  2. you crack me up and make me laugh on a daily basis. thanks for that as i am a bit overwhelmed with hubby gone to afghanistan and wonder if God is giving me more than I can handle also..

  3. Yes - God thinks you are a superhero. But one day, not too far from now, I know God (even if he is a loving one. and not a vindictive one. oh and also more mature than me) would be quite alright with you putting your foot down on her going away on spring break. because I think that's where the majority of "Girls Gone Wild" things happen.

  4. OMG! The Girls Gone Wild comment. Cracked. Me. Up.

    Just remember that this little incident doesn't necessarily have to haunt you ... you can potentially use it as blackmail material when she's older.

    Worth considering.

  5. Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day, I greatly appreciate it, and now I'm here to spread the comment-love!
    Love the name of your blog!

  6. Oh noooo! I hope today's a bit more tame for you! :)

    ...stopping by from SITS.

  7. Oh, what little ones will do. I cracked up when I read this, cause it makes me remember when mine were so little and the things they used to do (and drive me crazy!!). I'm glad you can see the humor in most of it! =o)

    Droppin' in from SITS!


I love, love, love to read your comments!
