How do you tell the baby of your family that she isn't gonna be the baby for much longer?
If you're Mel Watts—who blogs under the name The Modern Mumma—you do it by pinning a note to your 1-year-old's crib, officially putting her on notice that she's about to be evicted.
"We're sorry we lied, you aren't our last baby," the letter begins. "You have until June 2017 to get used to the idea."
So. Damn. Brilliant! And just look at that reaction—priceless!
Tons of well-wishers showed up to offer their congratulations, along with a few members of the perfect parent brigade, natch, who felt the need to voice their "concern" at the little girl's apparent dismay.
"I can assure you she wakes up like this ALL.THE.TIME," Watts clapped back in a follow-up post.
"This kid loves a cry. It's like she never lost her newborn scream lol.... and she's so dramatic with the cry. Look negative Nancy I know I'm currently whingey about the baby I have but that doesn't mean I love her any less, I mean if she didn't scream so much would I love her more....? I don't think so. She's a chubby delicious crying mess and I love that about her!"
Preach, Mumma! My daughter screamed bloody murder for a full year, too. In fact, she STILL cries sometimes when I wake her up at 6 a.m. for school! So lighten up, people, and stop judging. We are so happy for this hilarious, growing fam!
