I’m sure all moms can relate to this one, but it’s still a WTF moment. Harps was sitting on the counter while we were prepping dinner and I tried to give her a kiss. She wriggled away and started hollering “NO!” at me.
I said something to the effect of – “what, no love for mommy?!” To which Chris responds from the dining room – “Do you love daddy Harper?!”
Harper – quick to perceive an opportunity to weave strife into the room responds back with “YES! I love DADDY!! I have kisses for DADDY!”
So he waltzes over, grinning like the Cheshire cat, snuggles in for a hug and a kiss and saunters back into the dining room, one hug happier.
Thankfully Torah is almost always ready to swoop in when Harper slights one of us to make up the difference and provide hugs and kisses above and beyond, so I got a little love from at one of my offspring, to take the edge off the sting of rejection.
Kids are such assholes.
Good thing they’re cute.
I feel Taylor Swift said it best – “I knew you were trouble when you walked in…” she is. Trouble with a capitol “T”. Just like Two, with a capital “T”… coincidence? I think not…
