Words #9

For my latest 'Words' I have chosen this quote from Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Nights Dream.'

I wouldn't say you would find me at home at night reading Shakespeare these days but I did A-Level English Literature and my absolute favourite is A Midsummer Nights Dream.

This quote sums up my little girl entirely.

To look at her, you see big blue eyes, beautiful blondy brown curls and the sweetest, happiest smile.

She looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, especially when she has woken up from a nap and she is all snuggly and cuddly.  She is incredibly affectionate, kind and loving.  Some mornings we seem to start the day just right and we have a great day, she is as good as gold and a delight to be around.

But behind that angelic exterior...

There is a side to my Mads that would make even hardened adults tremble.  My goodness this girl, even at two, knows exactly what she wants, and if she is a bit tired or under the weather and she doesn't get it- you better watch out!

Some days the only way to describe her is hard work.  These days happen rarely, but some days from the second she wakes up she just seems to want to test the boundaries.  She can tantrum like the best of them, letting out the most dramatic diva like fake cry when she doesn't get her own way.  We have even had the throwing herself on the floor in protest.

She also has now learnt how to pull on my emotional Mummy heart strings.  This girl could win an Oscar for her performances.  The other day she came up to me and asked for a biscuit.  I said no, that we had only just had breakfast and she turned to me, flung her arms round my neck and said  'Please can I have one Mummy, I just love you so so much.'  Cupboard love works in our house it seems as we soon were eating a digestive at 8.30am.

Likewise if I get cross with her, she has figured out how to play me at my own game.  'Mads do you want a time out?' 'Yes please Mummy.'  'Mads do you want to go home?' 'Yes.'

 Oh right.  That wasn't the answer I was looking for.  How can a two year old outsmart me? 

Sometimes I get little glimpses of what she will be like when she is older, and what kind of teenager she will be.  I am sure there will be times when we she will test us and push the boundaries even more than she does now.

But for all those testing times?

We get to spend our days with the most remarkable little girl.  

She's cheeky but she's happiest when she is stroking your ear as a comfort.

She can be a monkey but she is the kindest little girl you could meet and she looks out for her friends.

She is loyal, affectionate and her giggle could melt your heart.

She sucks her fingers when she's tired, and will often come and cuddle me when I least expect it.

She is full of innocence, and she makes us incredibly proud every day.

She can be fierce but she's our Mads.

And we love her very much.

      They are so wise and knowing for such a little age I think! Mads totally knows how to play with my mind and my heart strings. ;) x

    I do so love this quote, it's said about Helena and I played her in my A-Level production so the play and anything about that character are particularly close to my heart. And that photo suits it perfectly.
    I have a feeling my little lady is going to grow up to fit this quote as she already manages to throw little strops, and then look at you with the cutest little grin.... and she's not even a year old!!! x

    Love LOVE love this post and this quote. Although my Baby is only 5 months I have seriously seen that she is a girl who KNOWS what she likes and what she doesn't and some days are HARD work...but as you stated most are fabulous
    I think that it gives me confidence that these fierce little girls will turn into women who will never be 'walked over' by anyone in life and will be real 'go getters'
    Thanks for a fantastic post

    This quote matches Addy so well too, although unlike Mads she has these days too often. Beautiful picture xx

    I've just discovered these on twitter and I'm in love! We've been looking for what GG calls a "frothy" skirt for ages and never found one that's quite right. I was hunting on Etsy last night and still couldn't find anything! Gorgeous!

    Amazing photo and that book is my favourite. It's the most magical and romantic title ever. Mads is a pretty awesome young lady. Love her sweet but spirited personality. It will stand her well in the future.
