ANYONE ELSE HAVE THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE THEME SONG STUCK IN THEIR HEAD? NO? JUST ME?
I finally had the perfect moment to sit down and get started. I have a fresh cup of coffee and the little one is down for her nap. NOT. I have a reheated cup of coffee from several hours ago and she is currently singing in her room. I definitely make valiant efforts to get her to take her much needed naps, but it is not exactly up to me, that much has been established.
I have heard it time and time again.
“She’s got a mind of her own.”
I think it is a nice way of saying stubborn, adamant, or headstrong, which in my opinion would all be correct. I’m told that we have some similarities in these departments, but I like to chalk it up to independence.
I love sharing her unique and especially stubborn moments with my family and friends. Just last week she INSISTED we listen to her sing the same few seconds of How Far I’ll Go just to avoid going to bed. It is my mother who so humbly yells, “KARMA.” So, moral of the story, I’m raising a miniature version of myself.
WAIT, she’s finally quiet, I think she is napping.
TWO SECONDS LATER WHEN I LOOKED UP FROM MY COMPUTER.
I guess there will be no nap today, which will make this afternoon very interesting.
I could ramble on forever (as many of you know) so let me get to the point. I am absolutely in love with watching my daughter’s personality grow, but with a mind of her own, things do not always go according to plan. I should say never, they never go as planned. I’m tired of comparing myself to other parents and my child to other children. I have a unique kid with a very strong head on her shoulders and I will do everything in my power to embrace this with open arms. I know, I know, easier said than done.
Anyways, we are headed to the park because I have been cooped up too long.
