Chasing a toddler around the house to get cuddles is one of my favorite activities. It’s a little bit of joy to get the kisses and hugs, and it’s a little bit of vengence too.
See, they make you do things you’re not keen on all the time, and bugging them back a little to get something you want is a tiny little parental rebellion.
I was engaging in this activity, while saying, “Give me some sugar!”
Suddenly, she stopped dead in her tracks, turned to me. Gave me a death stare and a super cute toddler furrowed brow, “No! No sugar for you Mama!”
I tried to looked appropriately put in my place. Managed to hold it until she turned her back, at which point I giggled silently to myself at being reprimanded by a three year old.
