4 Ways My Daughter Has Made Me Go "WTF?"

Having a daughter is fun. You get to dress her up. You get to have a shopping buddy.

You also scratch your head a lot because you don't understand her behaviors.

Here are some things that have left me going, "WTF?" when dealing with my daughter.




1. She came home from school carrying this tree branch:



"I couldn't leave it! It was lonely! It needs to live here. With us." She was serious, guys. I refused to let it in the house but it still sits outside our front door.




2. I heard her crying in her room the other night. I thought she was hurt so I rushed upstairs.



"I miss my tooth being in my mouth! It used to be there and now it's GONE! It's GONE, Mommy!" She had finally lost her first tooth and she was freaking out about it.




3. She'll be playing nicely outside and then she'll come to the door with a friend. This always seems to happen when I'm on my period with unbrushed hair, a stained shirt, and sweatpants.


"Can my friend come inside? We're bored." I'll explain that I look awful and she'll say, "We don't want to play with YOU." Still. I don't want to traumatize someone else's child. Why can't she want to invite someone in when I look decent and smell like a peach?





4. I'll start to gather some of her old toys to donate, because her room can get scary. She'll find the pile of toys I want to get rid of and she'll be like:




"Why are you getting rid of my skates? You know how much these mean to me!" Even though she has NEW skates. This is why I have to get rid of her stuff while she's at school. Otherwise she'll suddenly discover that she NEEDS her Little People castle in her life.

  1. Hahahahah! This has me cracking up. I think the tree branch one sounds like something I would have done at her age. Unluckily for my mom, I was always the kid to just have random animals follow me home... and then I'd beg to keep them!

  6. I think all kids are like this in some ways. My youngest will cry if we look at her the wrong way. Or if she doesn't have the water bottle she wants in her room. She also will carry around objects that make no sense.
    It's impossible to clean out the basement when my boys are around. Suddenly the toy they never look at is valuable and important.

  9. HaHa - I love the way Natalie's mind works!!!
    When the boys were younger getting rid of toys was brutal. Then last summer they decided to get rid of ALL the old toys and I was the one who didn't really want to!

  16. Your daughter reminds me so much of my niece, who is 11 now. My sister has to stealthily clean out her room when she isn't home, but it can't look TOO clean or she'll notice, and lament the piece of paper that my sister threw away!

  21. Ha, so random with the branch. My girls are still just babies but I do experience your number 3 with the fedex and ups guys. They seem to only deliver my packages when I look like crap, lol.

  23. HAHAH! I love this so much. Your writing is incredible, you have a way of making everything hysterically funny. The tree branch was my favorite though the unexpected guest situation is going to me when Dylan starts bringing home random kids from the neighborhood
