It’s so crazy how the littlest things can just add up. Brielle had stuck some stickers to the table when we were doing a project, and I was frustrated with that, and of course Aviana is trying to assert her will all day long, and I was frustrated with that.
I asked her, to keep her from pestering me while I was trying to rescue my table, “Why don’t you take some of the stickers off this paper and decorate this envelope?” And she said “But, MAAAA-MA…” It was then I started yelling. Then I realized what I was doing and calmed down.
I told Aviana I was going to make Sassy Spray and starting tomorrow if she mouthed off, or started one single sentence with “But…” she was getting Sassy Spray. She doesn’t even know what it is, but since I read about it the other day we’ve talked about it, and does not like the idea one tiny bit! She cried and cried. She kept telling me she didn’t want the Sassy Spray. I told her it’s her choice because she doesn’t have to be so argumentative and doesn’t have to start a sentence with “But…”
And she said, all teary and pathetic, “I just want you to use your good voice, not your evil voice!”
I guess Mama could use some Sassy Spray too!
