what happens when Katie...

What happens when Katie decides to have a tantrum??

She locks herself in the bathroom.

She NEVER gets mad... but when she gets mad, it's usually over something dear to her heart.

Like chocolate cake.

Yep, she had a tantrum tonight b/c her sister apparently got more cake than she did (I don't exactly use a ruler to measure my kids' portions... y'know?), and it must've been the thing that tipped it all over.... so she flung herself from the kitchen, leaving said piece of cake on the counter, and locked both doors to their bathroom.

I knocked on the door.

No answer.

I knocked the melody of "I am a Child of God" on the door in hopes she'd recognize the song.

No answer.
I'm sure by now she was rolling her eyes.

(holding up three fingers for W of course)
I'm in this for the long haul.
I call out "Oh Katie!! Katie Katie Kitty Kitty Kitty!!"
like I'm calling a cat.
No answer.

Finally I shoved her said piece of cake under the bathroom door.

Minutes later, the door opens, and this is what I find.

The stinker better be grateful.

and why YES! Those ARE wooden swords you see lying in the middle of my hall floor!
My girls must've done their dance.....

P.S. Just as I'm finishing this up, Katie finally exited the bathroom, gave me a "hmmmph" look and grabbed her phone. Oh... game on girl!

P.P.S She just texted me. "I am layn down in the bathtub with some towels and my pillow"
I responded with "hope you're comfy!"
and her reply? "I'm a little wet but I am comfy."
My reply? "k!"

to be continued.....
