f is for...

Amara was having one of her nights. You know, when she thinks she rules the roost.

So when she refused to clean up the disaster she created in our basement (it seriously look like a tornado swept thru there), she was scolded with the ultimate punishment: no bubble bath before bedtime.

Boy, was she unhappy. And that pretty much made for an unhappy Mom2Amara.

When all was said and done, Amara was tucked away in bed when I then heard this wailing coming from her room.

"Mommmmmm! You forgot something!!"

Okey dokey then.

I race up to her room where she is using her left hand to hold down all of the fingers on her right hand except her middle finger. She was essentially flicking me off! But in reality, she had a hangnail I had promised her I would clip. But nonetheless, she was giving me the finger!

I didn't know whether to laugh or to be ticked off.
today's good: Well yet again, I have come home on a Friday evening, all pumped up to tidy up my unkept home and have proceeded to fall asleep on the sofa. But given that I don't sleep much during the week, I'll take it as a "today's good."
today's bad: I convinced Dad2Amara that it would be a fantastic idea to see Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. To me, yes, it's a lot of money we don't have but it's also a once in a lifetime opportunity. And I'm all about living for the moment. Well, we lost one set of tickets because Dad2Amara was dilly dallying. We lost a second set of tickets because we were simply outbid. And Dad2Amara refuses to sit outside of the arena watching the game on a big screen with a bunch of other losers who were not fortunate enough to have tickets. So it looks like I'll be watching the game from my sofa. Grrrr.
