Princess is a tyrant.
Her tantrums and strops are making anything that Mini-Me ever threw, seem perfectly angelic. Madam P is terrifying. Think 11 from Stranger Things when she stares at someone she dislikes? Yup. Princess.
Her latest acts of retaliation and protest include slapping, biting, growling (nope, not joking), and getting undressed.
She pulls off her clothes for no apparent reason other than to annoy the grown up in her charge. And over the past few nights, this has escalated to full removal of the poocatcher too.
Wednesday night, Daddy and I checked her before we went to bed. “What’s on the pillow beside her head?” whispers Daddy.
“I don’t know” I answered, mentally checking my memory for what was there when I put her down; Moana, George Pig and Jessie… And yet here was a white teddy of some sort.
I picked it up.
It was in fact a soggy nappy. A quick feel confirmed that yes indeed, Princess had removed the nappy. However, she had managed to put her Jammie bottoms back on.
A quick dry nappy on her stubborn wee bum and off we went to bed, laughing at the wee fart.
Thursday night. Same thing. However, the nappy was not on the pillow this time. No, she had fecked this nappy out of the cot, along with her pillow, quilt, teddies and dodees. In fact all that was in the cot was her bare bum and the vest she hadn’t gotten off.
Yesterday morning. I got her dressed and ran to my room to pull on my own clothes. I returned approximately 3 minutes later, only to find Bare-arsed Betsy running around the kitchen cackling at me.
So there you go. It seems we have a little naturalist on our hands. Either that, or she’s ready for potty training a WHOLE lot earlier than Mammy is ready for it.
I hope it’s a phase she’ll grow out of quickly. If not, let me apologise in advance for any fat little peaches you may see running behind me in Dunnes or Aldi-everything.
