Speaking of passive aggressive...
« on: March 28, 2011, 01:47:58 PM »
I was just putting my 7-month-old, BabyPenguin, in a long-sleeved sleepsack.  When I put one of her arms through the sleeve, I didn't quite pull it down all the way, so it covered her hand entirely.

Did she say, "Mommy, can you please fix my sleeve?"  No.  She just stared at it until I noticed and fixed it.  Talk about passive aggressive.

Luckily she has an etiquette maven mommy to help out with that!  ;D  (too funny, by the way!)

I hope there was an accompanying eye-roll when you finally got it fixed.  ::)
Most people look at musical theatre and think "Why are those people singing and dancing in the street?" I'm sort of the opposite. I see a street full of people and think, "Why aren't they?"

Better than my 17 month old who will yell when her arm or foot gets stuck in her clothes...

Well I hope you set her straight.  I bet she thinks that because she's little and cute she can get away with that behavior.   ;D
Ask for what you want. Let's be clear on this one:
Subtle hints don't work.
Strong hints don't work.
Really obvious hints don't work.
Just say it!

At least you also didn't get the gosh-my-mom-is-sooooooo-not-getting-it sigh and teeth sucking noise...  :P

Mine straightens her legs and lock her knees so I can't get her legs into her sleeper without some serious back-of-the-knee tickling. Obviously if I can't put her pajamas on she doesn't have to go to bed.

Possibly because she has no teeth to suck?

lol.  Sounds like my big dog, Zoe.  She will stare at me until I realize she wants something.

What was bizarre was, my Mom could decipher the dog's stare. She'd come into the room where my Dad and the dog was and he'd say "what does Wilhelmina want?? She has food, she has water, she doesn't want out, she doesn't want a tummy rub...???" Mom would look at the dog, then say "Oh, she wants me to tell you the UPS guy came by today and brought those new books you ordered." The dog would sigh, and go lie down, perfectly content.  :D

OP, I hate to say this, but you may wish to reconsider how you train your children.  Keep putting up with this, and she'll be a monster by the time she's two.

:P


I have a blog.  I hate that word.
