Mommy's Buttons

Noelle has figured out this last week that if she whimpers right before naptime or bedtime saying, "I'm hungwee momma! I'm hungwee!" I will rush in a flurry of panic and get her some food, thereby delaying the inevitable.

Her other tactic is to say in a perky, little voice, "Mommy I have to go potty!" Since we have just accomplished potty-training this last week, this is the second most powerful thing she can say to stop me in my tracks.

Tonight, we were getting ready to have our night time prayer with Grammy and Grandpa, who are visiting for the holidays, when she immediately started whimpering, "I'm hungwee mommy, I'm hungwee!"

By now, I've figured out what she's doing and so I just laughed at her and said, "Noelle knows how to push mommy's buttons."

At which point, she stopped, looked down and pushed both my boobs!

My response to this is, "Good. Then you'll be ready for breakfast in the morning." and if they press on with "No, I'm REALLY hungry....STARVING!!!" then I say, "Well, if you're dead in the morning, then I'll know that I was wrong not to let you eat."

At least you didn't tell her that you are wrapped around her little finger. No telling what she would have done then.
