Monday afternoon the kids and I made a trip to the YMCA. My plan was that they would go to daycare while I exercised and then we would all swim together. Mia, on the other hand, had no intention of cooperating. She refused to go to daycare. Crying and clinging and screaming ensued. After 15 minutes of trying to coax her to go and her refusing and after also discovering that the pool was closed due to inclement weather, we left having done nothing but wasted a lot of time and gasoline.
Back at home awhile later Mia and I had a conversation that went like this:
Me: Mia, I love you so much, but sometimes you drive me crazy!
Mia: No I don't. I never even get to ride in the front seat! I can't drive you anywhere!!
