despite the permanent marker on my coffee table. And despite the headache I have from her non-stop talking (she actually talked throughout her dentist appointment including a fluoride treatment). Despite the crumbs I found in front of the sofa after reminding her for the umpteenth time that she can't eat in the living room. Despite having to refold her chest of drawers. Despite having to scrape glitter glue off the basement floor. Despite the ants drawn to the mess she leaves after every meal. Despite having to pick tissue off of wet laundry because she left a tissue in her pocket. Despite the whiplash-like feeling I have in my neck from her screaming "Look Mommy" to point out a punch bug while I'm driving. Despite her tossing cat kibble to the cat at the bottom of the stairs. It's been a long long day, lol!
