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. ☺
