Άφησέ με Παιδί Μου..Παίζω...

Playing on the PC this morning,my four year old and highly opinionated daughter came up to me and asked what I was doing.

"Παίζω γλυκιά μου," της απάντησα.

She stared at me for a moment and then started to laugh with all her heart.

"Τι γελάς καλέ; Παιδάκι δεν είμαι και εγώ;¨"

Her laughing continued some more and then she became a bit serious and looked at me under all her hair that was in her eyes, put both hands an her hips and spread her legs apart a bit..she looked like my mom at that moment and I felt like I was once again twelve and getting busted for doing something.

"Aαααααα!!!!!Τι λες;;;Δεν είσαι παιδί!!! Είσαι μαμά!!!"

I sat stunned and looked at this small monster that I helped create..

I picked her up and gave her a hug while she started to laugh again in a silly way. She knew she had me then. She felt she had indeed won with her last words.

I was left with the thought though.
Could my four year old be trying to put sense into me?
To be giving me the hint to kind of grow up?

I put her back down and thought about it.

No way...

Though being a mom is something that can't be compared to anything else..
One of the 'good things' on my lists of achievements..
I think I'll keep the kid part in me as well..
Kαι ας μου κάνει την 'εξυπνη' η μικρή μου..
και ας μου κάνει παρατήρηση...
I'll just be the 'youngest' mom alive..
Μου πάει γάντι..

It's more fun being a kid anyways...

Πάντα να κρατάς το παιδί μέσα σου. Όπως και να αποφασίσει να εκφραστεί αυτό, είτε μέσω ενός παιχνιδιού στον υπολογιστή, είτε με ο,τιδήποτε άλλο, αυτό το παιδί είναι υγεία. (αρκεί να μην επιβληθεί στον μεγάλο. Εκεί υπάρχει πρόβλημα,....νομίζω).
