I HATE MAMA!
Three words that make a parent cringe. Where on earth does a 4 yo learn to say this? What did I do to make him yell this at me? Well... I walked into the kitchen and he had two HUGE glasses of milk and was trotting out the door. Yes two! Now I'm not sure if he was going to share with one of the dogs or just why he had two but I told him he couldn't have them. It was 10 minutes before supper and I promptly took them away. The next thing I know he's down in his room screaming "I HATE MAMA!" So I called him out and said "Do you know what that means?" He nonchalantly said "no." I explained to him just what hate meant and he quickly changed his attitude, but don't you wonder just where they pick this stuff up? And the thing is one can hand him a cookie and he loves you to pieces! Neither one of my girls ever said this to me, although when my oldest, now 23, went through her teenage years I'm sure she thought it quite often (smile). But she turned out okay, actually she turned out great and I couldn't be more proud of her. As for my 4 yo... well I can only hope for the best, and when he grows up I can remind him of all the things he put me through :) And then I'll show his future wife this picture:
