Famous Baby C is 9
This Baby Dictator is 9 now, so bow down. Yes, she looks like a busy CEO, arms crossed, plotting her next hostile takeover.
And, yes, as her brother says, "Sure Dada, she's cute, but her heart is black."
She does not suffer fools lightly. She is tiny but fierce and definitely takes no prisoners. She is not interested in negotiating, that is just a stumbling block to imposing her will.
But she is also sweet and loving. I have never known anyone like her. She is the living, breathing embodiment of Snow White. Animals, wild animals, approach her. So maybe her heart isn't all that black after all.
Every night when I put them to bed, she tells me, "I love you Mommy. You are the best Mommy in the whole entire world. I love you. Sweet dreams. Can I have one more hug and a kiss?" And we have to do this 3-5 times each night. I am tired, but oh my goodness, the sweetness that is this little darling girl.
I am grateful to the universe for delivering her to us. We would be lost without her. Mainly because we wouldn't have anyone telling us what to do!
