When Moppets Attack
February 21, 2008 - 9:48pm

The Girl is the cutest, most angelic looking three year old on the planet.

But don't be fooled.

Yesterday morning, as The Wife and I were upstairs getting ready, and The Boy and The Girl were downstairs, finishing their breakfast:

TB: *Mo-ooooommmmm*!

TW (sighing): What?

TB: TG said I *suck*!

DD: (stifled laugh)

TW: TG, did you say that?

TG (brightly): Sow-wy!

TW was mortified, but I was a little proud. TG may look like a girlie girl, but she takes no crap. Over time, this will be a good thing.

I just have to learn not to laugh out loud when she strikes.
