I am well aware that someday soon, my kids will be smarter than me. They learn so much every day at school and you can practically see the stuff smooshing into their brains. I know it's just a matter of time. Them getting smarter makes it harder for me to slip things past them or distract them when they don't get what they want.
Thanksgiving day, I was attempting to distract Addison so I could talk to my mom about potential gifts for the girls. Last year I would have just talked to my mom about it in front of Addi - this year, if I start spelling something she immediately knows I'm talking about her. I asked her to run to the garage and get me a Coke Zero, then started talking to my mom.
A few minutes later, Addi walks in and hands me a Gatorade. She loves Coke Zero just as much as me so I know she knows what it is, so I said, "Addi, this is Gatorade. Mommy asked for Coke Zero."
She looked at me and said, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." Then, smiled sweetly.
Interesting turn of events for me, don't you think?
