There are some people in this world who are “lucky.”
I . . . am not one of those people.
If I forget my umbrella at home — it pours that day. If I am on the verge of running late to go ANYWHERE, that’s the point when a child gets sick, colors on himself or herself, or has a blow-out.
Or the day my new dryer is delivered . . . my washing machine quits mid-cycle. That was Wednesday’s unlucky venture.
Sigh. I wish I could share a beautiful story about me being lucky, but I just don’t have the touch.
My daughter, on the other hand, is lucky. Really, really lucky.
Case in point? Her Gramie is in town — and the Little Lady has decided if Mommy is the Boss of the Little Lady, then Gramie (by virtue of being my mother) must be the BIG Boss of Mommy.
Using that best example of a 4-year-old’s logic, she has been tattling on me to Gramie. Running to Gramie for secret stashes of gum. Begging Gramie for toys and stickers. Sneaking sips of her Gramie’s coffee.
Using the “Big Boss”; for all she’s worth.
Yeah — the Little Lady is lucky there is still a 4 year old girl in me. . . one who remembers when my Mom was the Boss . . . and one who still feels a wee bit of intimidated . . . and, therefore, doesn’t mind when a few of Mommy’s rules get broken during Gramie’s visit.
I’ll get back at her — someday: when I’m the Big Boss Gramie.
