Linking up with Heather and Megan for Mommy Confessions!
I don't know if it's programmed into a 4 year old's DNA to drive you absolute bonkers but my kid is trying to win the gold medal doing this.
We are breaking this neat little habit he's picked up recently called Attitude.
I don't get along with Attitude. Attitude and I are enemies. Now the monster and Attitude are BFFs and I'm about to kick them both to the curb.
When I ask him to do something he recently started this extra bit of whining, which I don't tolerate, and telling me he doesn't want to.
My response is always, "I did not ask if you wanted to. You are GOING to."
He does it and then I always say, "Wasn't so hard kiddo could have been done ages ago."
I thought I had a couple more years before this started?!
When it counts the most my kid is always pretty amazing so we take the good with the bad but I can't be dealing with this Attitude person anymore. If he talks to ME this way he must talk to his teacher this way and that is unacceptable.
