via Daily Prompt: Cranky

This will be my first prompt post.

Cranky…wow, I can think of a lot of things for this word. I have a five year old. When she’s cranky, I’m cranky. It is a very catching emotion to say the least. I know I shouldn’t let it get to me but it does. I’m a virgo so that may be part of it. She snaps out of her crankiness as fast as she jumps into it. Maybe because she’s a Pisces. We experience cranky almost everyday, whether it lasts a while or for a few minutes.

Like most kids, I’m sure, when she doesn’t get her way, she’s cranky. This makes me cranky because it irritates me when she doesn’t listen or can’t take what I say for an answer. Kids make a mess when they play, she gets cranky when it’s time to clean up. If we’re on a playdate or friends visit us and something doesn’t go her way, look out, cranky to the max.


Sometimes she surprises me, because when I think I’m going to get cranky, I don’t and wow, what a gift.

I guess if she wasn’t cranky, those good moments wouldn’t be sooooo good?! Maybe?!

The other side of cranky

There is that other side of cranky. It does happen and when it does, it’s awesome and joyous for all of us, mommy, daddy and little one.

You take the good with the bad and hopefully everything balances out in the end.

Wow! I feel horrible because I mainly wrote about cranky, but that was the prompt…right?!  🙂

Have a Happy Easter!

PS.  Don’t tell anyone, I get cranky on my own too. Without her help.
