Trenton has a good collection of excellent quality figurines going. He will have to start frog collecting at some point to complete their Themed Display of animals.
And then this happened. Is this glitch normal? It's like Ashton jumped out of herself, seeing double for a moment before baby-her magically disappeared.
Welcome to the family beautiful girl! Though your future is fated, we still look forward to seeing who you become.
"Mama!" Ashton shouted, causing Amie to put down her reading with a sigh. She hardly had time to read or write anymore.
"Yes honey?" she asked.
"I hungry," Ashton reported, poised with a serious face.
"OK baby, well it's just about dinner time anyway. Let me get you something." Amie soothed, scooping her 2 year old up in her arms.
Secretly, Ashton wasn't actually hungry, but she couldn't stand the thought of mommy giving anything else more attention than her, especially those boring books.
"Oooo!" Ashton squealed, thinking this gooey food would be extra fun to play with.
And it turns out she was right; it was extremely fun to smear it on the walls and floor.
Once her ploy was discovered, Ashton was quickly wiped off and placed on the floor so mommy could make dinner. Queen Bee was not happy about this and promptly threw a huge fit.
"What even is this Amie?" Trent scoffed, "And how did she manage to get it everywhere?!"
"It's just applesauce hun; could you please just wipe it down before it dries on? Dinner's almost ready." Amie called over her shoulder.
Ashton was banished to her room to 'think about what she did' while the grown-ups enjoyed a nice quiet dinner for a change.
But Ashton seemed suspiciously quiet; it wasn't like her to ever play nicely with anything.
And not surprisingly, she was making another huge mess. It's pretty much all Ashton does around here, messes and tantrums.
Needless to say, Trent was not pleased to have yet another mess to clean up. And hearing the frustration in his voice when he scolded her caused Ashton throw another tantrum.
"I think she's just tired honey!" Amie called from the next room, hoping this behavior was just a phase.
Ashton must have been tired out because she barely cried when she was told it was bedtime (usually there was a huge fight about it) and then she fell straight to sleep. Thank goodness!
Trent and Amie were exhausted. Who knew being parents would be so difficult? She's only just one little girl but she already has the house turned upside down and her parents wrapped around her finger.
"It may be time to rethink our gentle discipline style," Trent sighed in frustration, thinking that things couldn't possibly go on like this much longer.
"I agree," Amie breathed sleepily, rubbing her eyes.
