I need to go back to my real family

Today, Avery has decided that she doesn't belong here. She seems to think that there's a better family out there just waiting for her to come back to them. I don't know where this idea came from, but she's driving me crazy.

She's been asking "Mom, when are you going to take me back to my real mom?"

Me: "What do you mean your real mom? I am your real mom."

Avery: "No, I need to go back to my real mom. When are you going to take me there?"

Me: "Uhhh...I don't know. Maybe later."

Avery: "No. You need to do it now."

The first time she did this I thought it was a little weird, but also a little funny. The 30th time she did it I was ready to take her back to her real mom. Whoever she may be, but I just said, "whether you like it or not, I am your real mom and you have to stay here." I know that once she realized that what she was doing was bugging me, she just kept it up to annoy me more. It's what I would do, but it's still annoying.

This is so funny ha. Yeah I just hit it with a softball bat the first time and then THREE months after my surgery I smashed it again. I wasn't aware that I ruined it until my face started hurting and I was informed that my sinuses are full of sludge. Lovely.

Maybe you should use a little reverse psychology, and feed her nothing but candy and cake, and tell her her real mom would make her eat brussel sprouts. Should do the trick.

Jillene said...

Maybe you should drive over to someone's house and tell her to get out (someone she doesn't know/a random house) because you are at her real mom's. Maybe then she will stop bugging you about it!!

TJ said...

Jillene's idea is funny, you could bring her by my place for a couple of hours, that ought to do it.

Erin said...

Did you forget that she was adopted? I mean, I'm sure you didn't endure 24 hours worth of labor for this child.

You'll laugh when she has a child who says the same thing. Too bad it will be a 20 year delayed gratification!

Rebecca said...

Uh, oh. Wait until she starts packing a bag. Tanner did that. Ask me about it some time.

By the way, I tagged you at my web.me site. Random Ramblings. :)

Maybe you should go to the store, tell her your meeting her real mom and when she doesn't show up say. Well... looks like your stuck with me! ;)

Whitney R said...

Oh, and has she been watching any adoption shows?

Mike said...

That is funny! Maybe her brother has been telling her she's adopted to tease her or something. Sounds like something my brothers woulda done. lol.

Wow, this is a new one for me. It's usually me that I sometimes wonder if my children were switched at birth or something! Please, let us know what you end up doing!

Rosie and Derek said...

That is so funny! My kids surprisingly haven't pulled that one yet.

Lisa said...

I loved Jillene's idea. You could drive her to my house. She'll change her mind in the blink of an eye!

Kristen said...

Maybe I am her real mom even though she looks nothing like me, do you want me to take her? I think you might be Wyatt's real mom... especially on days like we had today :0)

Holly said...

How funny. Isn't it funny how once they realize how much they are driving you crazy they just do it all that much more?

*MARY* said...

Huh, how strange. Is there something you're not telling us Christa? Maybe some kidnapping you've done in the past?

Annette said...

Funny! You have very clever children! I bet if you took her somewhere else it would back fire on you! She would just go in all happy and want to stay there.
Just to make you go more crazy!

's. ONLY POSSESSIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's it. Except on Jesus. Jesus' is the correct way to write it. The Jones's is incorrect. It's The Joneses. NO NO NO NO NO NO 's. thing's. No. Brother's. NO unless it's my brother's house. If it's plural and possessive, it's my brothers' wives are all pretty. There you go. I was an editing minor until I didn't take the last class. So yeah, NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christa said...

Oh great and wonderful Boob Nazi. Thank you for the information. It truly was an answer to a prayer that you posted about punctuation. I've been wanting to know the correct way of things, but didn't know who to ask. Plus, I felt a little dumb and embarassed to have to do it.

The Boob Nazi said...

Feel free to ask me ANY punctuation or grammar questions. I really should be the grammar AND boob nazi. And really, I just want to spread good punctuation and grammar around! I hope it didn't come off as mean or rude or anything. I might have a whole punctuation post now!

Christa said...

Not rude or mean at all. You not only need to do a post about punctuation, but compound words and spelling as well. If you're trying to say "their kids are so cute", it's spelled the way I just did and not "there". As for the compound word part, I think what I'm thinking of is what is called a compound word. Like: I'm. It's I and am together and doesn't that make it a compound word? It's too late for me to be thinking.

Mikki said...

this is too funny, and cute. I love Jilene's idea, and Kristina P's.

Dionne said...

This made my day, I totally needed a laugh! Don't you just love kids. Where do they come up with some of that stuff?
