Cute vs. Annoying

Cute: Mster telling me she wants a "smackeral of something"* yesterday morning
Annoying: Mster telling me she wants a "smackeral of something" 20 times yesterday morning and afternoon.

*"Smackeral of something" is from a Winnie the Pooh book that refers to having a snack...for those thinking why don't you just give her something, snacktime has cutoffs or else dinner/lunch won't be eaten. We aren't a free for all eating in this house.

Today as we left a friends house we saw a man mowing a lawn.

Later on during the drive home:

Mster: When I grow up I'm going to be a man so that I can lawnmower.
Me: Mster, Ladies can mow lawns too. Ladies can do anything they want to do.
Mster: (silence)

To Bah Bah, Doo Doo and Baby Jack

To Bah Bah, Doo Doo and Baby Jack*:
I can't see you yet you seem to be an important part of the Burrito life. I'm just writing to let you know it would be of great help if you could help out around here.

Bah Bah, you're in elementary school, you should be able to play with Mster a little bit. Don't always be conveniently gone when Mster wants you to play.

Doo Doo, you may love pre-school, but it doesn't' mean you have to be there all day. Come home and amuse Mster while I get some dishes done.

Baby Jack, you are Mster's baby. You are not my baby. For that reason I refuse to change you, carry you, feed you or any other task Mster tells me you want me to do. Mster's a big girl. She can help you. I will however reprimand you when you take Lster's toys. That is unacceptable behaviour, even for a baby I can't see.

Sincerely, Squishy
