A conversation with Aidric

We were in the car yesterday, following Chris to return his rental car. Aidric wanted him to keep the car and this led to a conversation about buying versus renting as well and paying for things. He mentioned that Chris could have some money of out of his (Aidric's) piggy bank so that he could buy the car. I said that was very nice of him and asked if he would share his money with mommy too. He said no. I asked why not. His answer? "Because mommy, if I give you a little bit of my money, you will try to take all of it."

WHAT??? Who has this kid been talking to? Since when I am going to try to take all of his money? So, I questioned him further and verified that Daddy WAS allowed to have some of his money. Again, he said yes. But, mommy wasn't? Nope. And again, "Because you can't have all of it mommy and you will try to take it all."

I had to laugh, but on the other hand. Really??? Is it already obvious to our 3 year old that daddy is the saver and mommy is the spender??

Here we go..

Let me set the scene. She had just woken up from her nap and we were packing for an overnight trip to grandma and papa's house. I asked her to choose a bathing suit to take with. She chose one....and wanted to put it on immediately. There was a similar tantrum to this one regarding just getting the suit ON. Once I realized I had the straps on wrong, I tried to take the suit off to straighten them out and put them on right. You can see how that idea went over.


Oh, the orneriness. Looks like it's always been there...even before we labeled her as ornery. Everything is a game to her..if you ask her to come to you, that is just ammunition for her to run in the other direction. This video was taken back in February, before she was walking. I can't believe I've already "kind of" forgotten the scooch.

(By the way, I ran across this tonight because I was on Chris's youtube account looking for the video we just took tonight. I can not WAIT to show you that one, but it is not finished uploading yet, I guess.)
