So moms and dads take note. Never teach your child a new game right before bedtime and never try to distract said child from game by discussing birthday plans. It won't work, you will have a wound up child who refuses to go to bed more so than normal.
I taught G how to play I Spy last night because honestly I got tired of the pretend restaurant game she made up. So I taught her and she would ask me to "tell me to say?" I would then say, "I spy with my little eye..." and she would copy. Then she started doing it herself and it came out like, "My spy widdle eye..."
But she never let me guess what she was looking at. She would say, "My spy widdle eye my neckace dats wed and gween and hangin in momma's baffroom." It was pretty funny.
Then in order to get her off that game, I said, "Let's discuss your birthday party." So I started telling her who I invited and she said, "No I don't want dem come. I want Shay and grandad and grandad." She only wants my friend Shay and her grammie and grandad and yes she said grandad twice but she meant grammie because I checked. I told her Shay would be out of town but that her friend Swould come. She said, "And A?"
A is her California cousin, so sadly he won't be there either. So we are a bit confused about this whole birthday invitation list. She is afraid her friends will try to take her presents and/or bounce her in her bounce house. "You tell dem, momma, K?" Meaning I need to tell them to take turns and not bounce her and not take her gifts.
Oh and she was super tired and grumpy this morning because she could not fall asleep. I told her to go to sleep and dream of her birthday party and this morning she flat told me, "I not dweem of my birfday." Like , ha, you lied, tried to trick me, didn't work!!
