Cruel & unusual punishment...

or just some heavy-handed encouragement?

Annie and I were meeting my mom and sisters for a day of holiday bazaaring (I just made up a new verb!). I kept telling Annie to get in the shower and she kept saying that she didn't want to take a shower until tonight. But she needed one this morning.

So while she was lying on the floor whining that she didn't want a shower, I calmly walked over and poured a tall glass of water on her head. I even was nice enough to make sure it wasn't ice cold.

She laughed at first, but when she saw me laughing, she turned on the tears and yelled "You're the worst mom in the world!"

Maybe I shouldn't have laughed, but I thought it was a clever response to her defiance.
