What are you smiling at?

What is so funny about me saying no? What? It is not funny.
STOP laughing. Cease and desist, I tell you!
Step away from the dog bowl/computer/trashcan/health hazard and nobody gets hurt.
What? Are you calling my bluff? You think I won’t rip your arms from your body if you take a step closer? Okay, you may be right, but I will YELL VERY LOUD!!
And I will clap my hands in your face because that’s what a book says to do.
I’m mean and I’m CLAPPING.  
Look. I am now yelling at you, and clapping, AND making a very mean mommy face.  
This is NOT funny. At. All. 
Stop the belly laughs. Stop it. I am one thousand percent serious. 
Stop making that face. You are making me want to laugh. STOP IT! You are not playing fair!!  
Hold on… I’ll be right back… I must slip into the other room to laugh.

This does NOT mean you’ve won.

Kendall is 14 and a half months old and thinks is HILARIOUS to defy me.  No respect.

  1. I am laughing out loud right now… James does the exact same thing…. I can just picture you clapping in his face and trying not to laugh… gigglesnort …

    Fun at this age, aren’t they??? 😉

  2. Nate does the same thing too… and like others said, it’s so hard for me not to laugh too! It certainly is important to have a sense of humor when you have a baby, huh?

  3. I have to say, I saw your twitter while I was in a BORING meeting so I decided to read this post. Oh goodness, I snorted so loud that people asked if I was ok. Thanks for spicing up the meeting 😉

  4. I am so right there with you! We have the same dog water battle. No matter what I say she just does not seem to care. I tried another desperate approach the other day while she was splish splashing in the slimy dog water for the 100th time…I asked “What does Mommy say?”. She said “No!” in a stern Mommy voice and a (cute)mean face. I thought…well at least she is paying attention. LOL!

  5. LOL. Sorry, don’t mean to join Kendall, but.. LOL!

    Jasper does the SAME thing. Oh, and instead of understanding that no means don’t do something he thinks it means that he can do it but as long as he shakes his head no like we do that it’s ok.. like throwing food off the highchair for instance!
