"Tigger time to get dressed"
I hear a voice go "mami, NO"
Let me explain something about this crib I have for Tigger. It is not a drop down and the front is lower than the back, so I have no idea how she learned that if she goes into a back corner, with my short stature, I can't really pick her up, but well she knows this trick now.....so feeling a little tired and starting to get a little irked, I wondered how to get her up and willing to get dressed....
out of nowhere an idea hit me (must have been induced by being half asleep myself). She loves the camera, so I went and got my trusty camera and said
"oh mommy is taking pictures of you saying 'NO'"
Well the egocentrism that has taken over young children since the moment they understand their existence kicked in and once she heard the camera come on, it was a mad dash to get up and go to the front.
So I guess the morale of the story is that when my child is not obeying, I need to play Paparazzi and then the rest of the morning will go smoothly. Gah, my daughter...what are the tween and teen years going to do to me? I did not teach her how to be photogenic or how to be a ham!
