Disengage

Munchkin: Mom.

Me: No answer.

Munchkin: Mom!

Me: No answer.

Munchkin: Mom why won’t you answer?

Me: No answer.

Munchkin: Mom, if you don’t answer you’re gonna have a time out!

Me: No answer (while squeezing in a laugh).

Munchkin: Mom I’m gonna start counting. You better answer by the time I get to 5!

Me: No answer. (Dying silently of laughter).

Munchkin: Well mom, you are in big trouble now. Don’t you hear me calling you? Do you want me to call grandma? This is not the way to behave! What’s the matter with you? This is your last chance. MOM???

Me: No answer.

Munchkin: THAT’S IT! YOU’RE ON TIME OUT. YOU STAY RIGHT HERE IN THIS ROOM. NO COMING OUT UNTIL YOU SAY SORRY!!!

Me: Finally…

Munchkin: Was that an apology?

Me: No answer…

* Munchkin is my 4 yr old daughter. She is quite a character. Visit other posts under the tag #parenting or #singleparenting for more of her antics. ☺

    1. Funny! Sometimes I forget she’s only 4. She has the intelligence of an 8 yr old. Kids are cute. Blessings to you and your little one. ☺🌷

      These little people with which we’ve been blessed are such characters! Mine is quite the Drama Queen at times. Lord help us!!!
      They need their own TV series.

      1. It’s all about balance. You’re probably craving some alone time to be creative, to vent, to give wings to those voices within. Cravings have a way of becoming rather ferocious unless we feed them. 🌷

  2. It is very difficult for me to disengage. But if that would work with my very strong willed boys I will try it out. Love the writing too. Simple but right to the point.
