And then there is Nolie, fiercest two-year-old in the West. Statistics:
Height: 3 feet
Weight: 35 pounds, solid like a linebacker. Likes to jump on groins
Hair: brown, tangled
Eyes: Brown, mischievous
Wanted for: Screaming "no," whenever possible. Forcing you to call her "princess" or "cucumber pinka" at will. Wanting to be carried everywhere. Refusing to eat at meal times, but crying that she is hungry all day long. Limp noodle tantrums. Screaming "you are NOT my best mommy" as loud as she can.
Summary: Major pain in the butt. It's been a while since I've described my kids as "annoying," but that is exactly what Nolie is right now. Majorly, totally, capital-A annoying. I mean, also totally adorable, charming, yummy. But mostly ANNOYING.
Just to keep the record straight.
