Sometime in my toddlerhood, I bestowed such an honor upon my own mama. Sometime, somewhere, she enforced discipline upon my stubborn will, and I dubbed her, "The Meanest Mama in the Whole Wide World." To challenge my toddler wisdom at the time, she must have been the meanest, right? So there her title stuck. Of course, now we fondly refer to her by her special title, and I'm sure she wears it proudly for loving me enough to take the time to discipline me.
So I can't help but smile this afternoon as I listen to my toddler yell at me from his bedroom, "Mommy, You're a Mean Girl!" (He prounounces girl as /gril/.) And for me, I know exactly why he is telling me this. After listening to him and his new Diego he just got today (from the TV series) talk for 20 minutes when they are supposed to be napping, I told him I would take Diego away. They didn't get quiet, so I took away Diego for the remainder of nap. He proceeded to bestow upon me such an honor as I gave my mama not that many years ago.
I just wanted to inform you that I feel quite honored this afternoon to have such a similar title and hope I can live up to it and will wear it proudly! (Of course, I also enjoyed his debate with himself that followed... "No, she's not a mean girl. But she took Diego. Mommy, You're a Mean Girl!") I'm also looking forward to a big hug after nap. :)
