For the love of juice

My darling girl channeled her inner Kari Ann Peniche and pouted like a spoiled z-list celebrity this morning when I refused to pour her an overly large cup of orange juice. She was so upset with me, she refused to touch the offending cup of only a little juice, choosing to give it nasty looks instead.

Then she pushed it away from her in disgust.

That's when she realized she had an audience.

And her beauty-queen persona took over.
Yes, this is the girl who said to me today, "Mom, you fuhgod you camwah. How you gonna take my pictuh?" How indeed.

    OMG - priceless!!

  • Dalia (Generation X Mom)

    This story is so familiar! I find it hard to be upset with them at this age, all they have to do is this and we forget! Just wait a few years!

  • Christie

    Umm let's NEVER introduce our children. They would becomes fast friends and then take over the world. That's just too much of a scary thought!

  • Kelly Miller

    @Christie - It is scary. That's what you call master manipulation.

    @Dalia - Very true. I can't stay upset with her for long. She's a hustler!

    Priceless!! How do they know about performing for an audience at such a young age? It couldn't possibly be because we egg them on, could it?? No way.

  • Kelly Miller

    I know, Amber. I know. I'm really bad for it with both kids. I love to laugh with (at) them and they are such hams!

  • Draft Queen

    SO precious!

  • Hear Mum Roar

    It always amazes me how they can be so cute at this age, when they're so cranky:)

  • Helen

  • Kelly Miller

    No, she's not camera shy at all. We relived the juice fight at dinner tonight. Orange juice has caused the most fights in this house!

  • ChefDruck

    That is too funny! And I love how you captured it all. The sign of a truly great blogger is one who doesn't let a little tantrum go uncaptured!

  • Janine
