Lil’ Duck has become a dictator. From the moment his little eyes flutter open, he is full of demands… “sippy please, mama, no yucky sippys, COLD sippy milk fridge”…. “cheerios, now, in my bowl, let’s go now, mama, get up!!” This morning, in my half-awake state, I am accosted on the way to the coffee machine by the little one holding a sheet of star stickers. The same stickers that I was sure that I hid in the bottom of a very full drawer…..
Tiny, thin stickers, with about 100 of these things on each sheet. Trying to peel them off after being fully awake is hard enough. Finally, I get one off and put it atop his head, per his request… only to be met with a demand for “anoder ticker on cheek, mama peease!!”. Ten stickers later (why you would want a sticker on your nose is beyond me), I’m finally freed to continue on my coffee mission.
Of course, he just ate all of my oatmeal as I was writing this.
