7 Ways to Tell if You’re Raising a Diva

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

My daughter acquired the nickname “the diva” before she was even a month old. Thanks to a plethora of clothes purchased by her grammy, her wardrobe was officially larger than both of ours combined. And it still is! She even had us beat in the fancy brand name category. While she was wearing Calvin Klein jackets and DKNY onesies, we were wearing Old Navy jeans and t-shirts purchased in packs of three. Thus the nickname “the diva” was born. Thereafter she has lived up to that moniker in spades.

Here are a few ways in which she optimizes that diva-esqueness (yes, I just made that up).

  1. She has more shoes and clothes than her parents combined.
  2. She admires anything that is pink. Or sparkly. If it’s both, it’s now hers.
  3. Even before the age of two, she prefers particular outfits (extra points if that favorite outfit is pink and sparkly).
  4. After she pets the dog, she makes a grossed out face and wipes her hands on her shirt.
  5. Getting any food, dirt or liquid on her clothes is a “tragedy” and results in tears until it’s properly cleaned up.
  6. Wiping her hand after a messy meal isn’t a battle – it’s a requirement – more so her’s than ours.
  7. She has an immense love of shoes. So much so that if you put her in a sandbox, she yells “my shoes, my shoes!”

Anyone else have a diva on their hands?
