Whirlwind turned 5 on Tuesday.
Deep, long, inhale…. and exhale.
It’s amazing and scary and awesome and fun and…. and….
Well, I am not sure how to say this, but she has been acting sort of… sort of…sort of….not cool.
I’m not sure what else to call it.
Yesterday she called me “stupid”.
Honestly, I cannot believe its taken her 5 years not only figure this out. And for that reason alone I wanted to tell her, “No, you’re stupid!”
But, I didn’t.
But, I really, really, really wanted to.
Then she sked me if she could wear her Dora sticker earrings to the hockey game because, “they make me look like a six year old.”
What? I’m not even going to comment on that one, because it sounded sooooo stupid.
Then on the way to the hockey game, Baby Bot was screaming for no reason. Apparently this really turned Whirlwind off, she announced, ” I’m not sure I want a brother anymore”.
Zed and I shared a smile at this comment. Because, even though it wasn’t nice, it was sort of cute and a bit stupid.
And then today the doozy came out of her mouth.
She told her Dad, “I hate you.”
Which is really, really, really not cool to me. It’s not cute. It’s not stupid.
I’m not sure what it is.
And, I’m not sure what I am supposed to do about it.
