If 3 is this fun, 13 is going to be awesome.

Strip is a super cleaner upper.  She really enjoys putting her toys away and making her bed.  In school and her little gymboree class, she was always the one who wanted to put everyone's things away for them.  Unfortunately, she's gotten too cool for that.

She's still a good cleaner, but her latest theme is, "It's the end of the world," meaning whenever you asker her to do anything she acts like the world is ending and is super dramatic as to why she can't do whatever you ask.  Yesterday, we were having lunch together before hubs went to watch the race with some buddies.  The basement a.k.a playroom, was of course trashed. 

Hubs:  Ok, and while I'm gone you need to help mommy get 
the basement cleaned up.  All of your toys are just
all over the place and you need to put them where
they belong, ok?
Strip:  If you didn't want me to make a mess, then maybe
you shouldn't have gotten me a house with a 
basement.
Hubs:  Uhhh what did you just say?!?!
Strip:  Ummm Nothing.

Wow.  These teenage years are going to be LOTS of fun.

Yep, sounds just like a teenager except then you'll be asking her to pick her underwear, socks and clothes off the floor, hang up her coat, do her homework, stop texting.....and blah, blah, blah.

Oh and by the way, she won't listen.

Bwahahahaha! Wait till the exasperated sighs start before she answers any question you ask, like "What do you want for breakfast?" Or, "How was school?" Or "Why did you push your brother down?" Oh, the fun is just beginning! :)
