stools ...

In our playroom, we have a table and chair set from IKEA. It's nothing fancy. A blue table with three stools, two pink and one green. (Yes, I realize that it was stupid to get a green one.) Anyway, this morning, I was watching G's youngest and the kids were fighting over who got the pink stools. Doodle lost out. This, of course, turned into a HUGE tantrum. Apparently, having the green stool is the END.OF.THE.WORLD.

Doodle's reaction went a little something like this:

"I NEEEEEED A PINK STOOL! (unrecognizable words) I NEED A PINK STOOL FOR MY BUTT! (more crying) I NEED A PINK STOOL! IT MATCHES MY OUTFIT!"

OH.MY.WORD Dizzle! It matches your outfit! I must remedy this situation RIGHT NOW! Here you go Doodle. Here's a new shirt. NOW the GREEN stool matches your outfit. Happy?

I'm really impressed that you thought to change her shirt. Genius.

Green stool? $10. Green shirt? $15. Mom's sanity? PRICELESS!
I am sure it was all crazy when this was going on, but thanks for sharing, I needed a chuckle this afternoon. :) I wish I could just throw a tantrum sometimes! I think you need to go for a run!
