I wouldn't call my son a prima donna or a diva per se, but certain aspects of his life that are definitely diva-tastic. Like how his schedule dictates ours, especially when it comes to naps.

Adhering to his schedule and making sure he didn't nap in the car meant racing through the grocery aisles and then me sitting in the back with him as entertainment instead of sitting beside my husband up front. Then this evening I've been at his beck and call to make sure no monsters are under his bed, and that's after packing his lunch, washing his clothes, bathing him, and doing all the other things that moms do and never get to put on their resume.
