Mimi I love you. You know I do.
I love you to bits. You're super adorable, you're the cutest thing in the entire world, you're caring and you're a delight to have around.

But sometimes darling, you're in the pain in the bloomin' ass.
The way you bring the house down with your crying, the times when you just won't eat-no-matter-what, the times you throw my macbook from the table.

Yes, you're definately a pain in the ass.

Which is a good thing. Maybe not now baby, but later when you grow. The world has enough of people who do things simply because they're told to do 'em. The world has enough of conformists, of yes-men. Only when you're a pain in the ass to authority, will they learn to take you seriously.

Having said that, don't be a rebel without a cause, because that's plain stupidity. You don't want to be cast aside, you want to be listened to, to be heard, to be taken seriously. You want to stir up some mischief. You don't want to scream and shout without really having anything to say.

Do you?

If you don't like something baby, be vocal about it. You don't want to have dinner, don't. You don't want to go to college, don't. Be a pain in the ass then, just like you are now. Make us understand your point of view. When we refuse to comply, show your mom and me this entry on the blog.

Having said that, don't be a pain in the ass all the time. Nobody likes that. Sometimes baby, you have to do things that you may not want to do. And in doing them, you don't become littler. You become larger than you are. So accomodate other people as much as you can, as much as your conscience allows you to.

And as soon as you find yourself doing something which is inherently not you, stop. Throw a tantrum. Scream. Shout. Be a pain in the ass.

Will there be consequences to pay? Yes of course, just like there are now. You get slapped on the bum  now, for being a pain. Later, when you grow worse things may happen. You may get kicked out of school. You may get thrown into prison - who knows?

Look, all I'm trying to really tell you is that if you think something is worth going to prison for, do it. If something is worth you getting thrown out of school, don't let it hold you back.

Voice your opinion.
It's what separates us from the animals.
And us from the multituide of yes-of-course-I'll-do-whatever-you-say-men.
