Why do our children make us want to scream one minute because they are defiant and just plain stubborn and the next moment they are as cute as a button and saying the most darling things? I don't know why this is such a common occurrence with parents and offspring.
One minute a child is screaming like a banshee and the next they are doing a happy jiggly dance, naked around the living room. As a mother, I often find myself hiding behind my hand, trying to suppress the laughter that bubbles to the surface. I know that at that point I should be disciplining the child about the importance of modesty (try explaining that to a five year old) and having some sense of decorum. But, all I can do is giggle helplessly as I try to come up with a somber voice to tell the kid to get some clothes on!
