The Pot and the Kettle

La Petite Belle told her daddy yesterday morning that he was being "overdramatic" when he told her she was either a liar or a murderer.

OK, so maybe that was a somewhat overdramatic response to her telling her sister she hated her because she wouldn't braid her hair.

In his defense, the Bible does say if you hate your brother, you are a murderer (1 John 3:15). Hence, the name calling. Hence, the "Daddy, you're being overdramatic" statement.

We determined that she was not telling the truth. She does not hate her sister. Whew. That's a relief. She's not a murderer after all. Just a liar.

This all happened on the same day that La Petite Belle slammed down her elbow on the table when she misspelled a word from her spelling list, cried because her ponytail didn't look good, whined about how tough her soccer practice was, and then took 5 minutes to walk up the stairs like a crab because her legs were hurting so bad.

Take a look for yourself.
All the overdramatics in this house exhausts me.

I will continue to be my no-nonsense, even-keel, non-dramatic self.

This is hilarious! The title for this post is just perfect, too.

I guess that's one thing I'm missing not having any girls...we don't have much over-dramatization goin' on. But we do have a ridiculous level of testosterone, which creates a who 'nuther set of problems.

Hang in there. :-)

I have a four year old like that. The walking up the stairs S-L-O-W gets on my nerves. 'But mom, my legs are so sore.' Sore from what - sitting?
Cool first picture. Is that your church? It's beautiful.

Still laughing about "took 5 minutes to walk up the stairs like a crab..." oh the visual :)

Wild applause for Beau's response. That was excellent parenting.

Being the mother of a Drama Queen there is no way that I am going to tell you that she'll grow out of it. But your life WILL be more interesting for having her in it. And boredom stinks :)

Have a great weekend.

I take courage from your no-nonsense, even-keek, non-dramatic responses :) Now, do you give lessons on how to remain calm when daughters throw DRAMA all over everything? Because I know my responses to it leave something to be desired. Live and learn :)
