My daughter has the ability to drive me completely insane. Both of my kids have such different personalities, and while my son will does not bother me (for the most part,) my daughter can drive me up the wall in a measly ten minute time span.
Is that the case with those of you who have more than one child? (Or maybe even your one child?) Are their personalities very different? And does one of them have the type of personality that can just get to you? Please tell me I'm not alone...
Now don't get me wrong, I love her with all of my heart. She is funny and sweet and happy and generous and smart and a lot of other amazing things. In fact, sometimes I think that she's very much like a part of me - the part that annoys me - and that is why it bothers me. I think that she and I have more in common than you'd think.
But just when I think I can't take it anymore, she does something like she did last night. She told me she had a secret to tell me and delicately moved my hair away from my ear, tucking it back. She then whispered something completely un-important and not very secret-ey. Once finished whispering, she pulled my hair back over my ear and gently patted it down with her lovely little hand. "I just want to keep that between you and me," she said, "so I closed the secret inside your head." It's times like those that make me remember the sweet little girl who used to cuddle up in my lap and pet my hair.
Of course, she then proceeded to tell me that she didn't want me to sing her a goodnight song last night because my voice is "not that great." Hmmph.
