When we told her that she wasn’t allowed to have a treat and that we were the bosses, she said, “Then I want some new parents, right now.”
When we were in Foodland, she suddenly said, “P-E-N-I-S!” I glanced at her very quickly so as not to give her any attention. I have never said the word to her so I figured she was just babbling and just so happened on that combination. She looked at me very seriously and yelled loudly, “P-----! P-----! P-----!” while everyone turned to look at us.
When I asked Amaya to get my cell phone for me off the table, she said, “No. You get off your butt and get it yourself.”
And then I said, “Oh, baby, you are going in time out right now.”
Someone came in and replaced my 3-year-old with a teenager.
It’s too bad we don’t use time-out with teenagers.
