When The Smart Ass Attitude You Learned From Mom Goes Terribly Wrong

My daughter Lauren is 8, and the girl has snark and zing - and she is QUICK. She even gets me sometimes...I'm so proud.

For instance, my beautiful and precious angel bear (Lauren) was watching the boob tube yesterday and her room was a manifestation of hell.

"Lauren, you need to clean your room honey. It's scary in there."

"No I don't. It's not scary enough yet."

"Oh it's plenty scary, and you had better get moving before you upset me instead of sitting there giving me lip."

"Lip? What do you want one of my lips for?" She asks this with a totally innocent look on her face - like she didn't know what I was talking about.

"You're pushing your limits Lauren. This is the last time I'm telling you - go clean your room - or I'm going to wear you out."

"Okay - you can if you want. I've got buns of steal"


Turns out, buns of steal or no buns of steal, they still hurt when Mom gets ahold of em.

Yeah - I think it's the after-Christmas letdown. After all that effort "being good", the kids just seem to go into the new year being totally bad. My smart-ass-mouthed boy is spending the next hour alone in his room if he doesn't shut his trap in two seconds.

OTJ - you can laugh now....but the Mayor will put you in your place soon enough LOL

Sayre - and yet..we love them LOL

Annie - her room looks fabulous.

Carm - people used to tell me the same thing...foreshadowing for you perhaps?

Mr Fab - long time no see stranger, and Happy New Year to you too.

Dr McC - Thank you. ...and may you and your house be blessed with a happy healthy baby in the New Year. Please tell Dolores I said hello and I wish her the best.

Chicky - I can't say that I enjoy hitting my daughter, and it bothers me that you love it. What are you? Some sort of sick fuck?

Pend - oh you know the room is clean girlie. LOL

Kim - she is *ahem* mostly.

Quinn - Happy New Year to you too woman.

Not sick I just like it when they get their bluff pulled, like they think they have the upper hand.

Definate foreshadowing. My one friend with 4 girls says she's more of a smartass then her 14 year old.

I guess that means REAL trouble....

Good luck. And here's hoping she doesnt stick a book down the back of her pants the next time you spank her....

*LOL snort*
OMG I thik this is when the "board of education" was "applied to the seat of my problem"...Snarky did not win my any points in our house! I got paddled one time so hard that I had bruises! Talk about scaring me for LIFE!!!

Then again...I didn't do it again...AHHH confusious say, lesson learned! Instant knowledge!

Mwahahaha! I love it! Lil' Miss is the same way with her mouth, but I give her "the look" and she knows it's time to shut it up. Practice "the look" and it'll be a lot less painful (if you're lucky- which sometimes I'm not)... Ok, shutting up now.

Attila - you to.

Nikki - but does he give them to you?

Jeff - I love my animals like my children too.

CeCe - this is a perfect example of the phrase parents always hear...We the first few years trying to get them to walk and talk, and we spend the rest of our lives trying to get them to sit down and shut up.

Chicky - She does try to have the upper hand sometimes...but she's no different from any other kid I'd suspect. ....and I do call her bluff from time to time, just like she calls mine sometimes. She's a cool kid - she just has to learn when it's okay to joke around and get lippy - something that I have no problem with as long as it's done respectfully and in fun..she'll learn.

Carm - LMAO you just brought back a memory of me when I was about 6 or 7 and mom was getting ready to spank me (I had to sit on the couch for a few minutes and wait for it)...I snuck a magazine down the back side of my pants...and got went and got the belt after was such a bad day for me. LOL.

Christina - no, we don't have stairs LOL, she just sat in the chair looking at me with that smirky expression on her face. LOL

Dirty - oh you know you will girl, but by the time you hit this stage....I'll be entering the teenage years with her..and if you wouldn't mind going ahead and starting to pray for me now, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Super - ouch girl, ouch.

Jenny - girl, I had the look, the hands on hips and and her daddy was in the chair beside her glaring at her...she just wanted to see how far she could go...not very far apparently LOL. When she was smaller, I could avoid spanking her by telling her "Lauren, you're getting ready to have a bad day." She knew after that - I was gonna whup her ass LOL

Kristen - Me to girl, Buns of steal are better than abs of flab LOL
