Maybe because there's been too much of this:
And not enough of this:
I've been slowing down on the sauce...and when I say sauce, I mean Diet Coke. I haven't had one for 5 days now...but I have had a massive headache, so perhaps that explains why I've been a little short on patience with this:
On the bright side, I can't stay too angry for too long because every time I get after her about whining or throwing a fit (or ANYTHING for that matter) Birdie, stops mid-scream and says,
"Are you mad?"
If I say "yes", then she says,
"Are you my friend?"
After I tell her she is my friend, she stops the charade, and life moves on.
However, if after I tell her "No I'm not mad", she breaks into a fake laugh and says,
"I'm not mad too!" And we continue on as if nothing happened.
So really in the end, I'm confused because my head is pounding and I have no idea if she's being disciplined or not.
I suppose we'll find out when she's about 15.
