true love ...

So, yesterday, my feisty four-year-old once again proved that she is a teenager trapped in a child's body. We were sitting at the breakfast table and unhappy with the meal I had provided, she turned to me and said, "If you love me, you will give me what I want!"

I laughed and replied, "Well, I guess I don't love you enough then, because you are getting what you have." Then she hit me with the "eye roll." Isn't four a little young for so much attitude? Seriously, what I am going to do when all three of them are teenagers?

This is why I have sons -- someone somewhere knew that daughters would be the death of me. Great comeback!

It sounds just like my 4 year old! I cringe just thinking about the teenage years...

That conversation sounds WAY too familiar! At least we are not alone.

It's cute now but when you can see what's coming you wonder how you'll survive. Mine is 8 going on 28!

LOL, cute!
Well, you can always sell them on eBay for profit when they hit their teens. Of course I am kidding but my older one is 20 now and she put me through hell during her teenage years so, honestly, I often felt like going on eBay … but it does get better, they go back to their normal selves after having gone wild for a while.
And 4 IS a difficult age, they are more creative now and will try to test all limits, just like teens… when my daughter was 4 she would often say to me “Why are you doing this to ME”? and then as a teen her favorte line was “You don’t understand”

RUNAGAIN! I am always threatening to sell my kids on e-bay! That's hilarious, I thought I was the only one!

But seriously T, wait till she's 10 and THIS seems so long ago that you long for that simple attitude.

Welcome to 5 more years of eye roll. Sooo annoying.

Sorry, I've been on your other blog by mistake, I guess, wondering where the posts were. Got it down now.

Happy weekend!!! :)
