Conversations With a 5 Year Old

Do you ever have those days where you feel like you're on a debate team? Except you're not really on a team, you're on a desolate island left to fend for yourself with a vicious 5 year old as your opponent.

5 year old DAUGHTER might I add.

Lately everything I say to my daughter turns into a two hour argument which in the end leaves me throwing fits and saying things like:

"Uh huh"

"No I'm not"

"Ya huh... I think I know what I'm talking about... I AM a mom ya know"

"I'm telling daddy"

"SEEAAAAANNNNN, Lily's not listening to me"

Once I run out of all my ingenious rebuttals, I tastefully complete the dispute by sticking out my tongue.

Then she say's things like:

"MOM!!! You have to be nice to your childrenS   or Santa won't bring you ANY toys"

"If you don't let me watch a movie then I'm not EVER going to brush my teeth again!!!"

Then Sean say's:

"GIRLS!  Stop fighting right now or you're both going to time out!!!"

*sigh*

I think I DO need a time out.

Okay, now you HAVE to watch this video.  I'm serious!  No no, I'm REALLY serious!!! Watch it okay.

That is hysterical. Just wait until she is 15 - You are in so much trouble! (The voice of experience)

Really nice blog. I'm not big on swimwear and accessories, but the rest is really enjoyable.

I was referred over by Melissa (Glamazon Mom)

I wish you lived closer to me because she and my 5 year old, Kate, would be the BEST of friends. Or maybe they'd be enemies. I could hear every word coming out of Kate's mouth. These sassy little things, they're going to be amazing women some day. So funny.

Oh my goodness, she is so CUTE!

I watched my 3 yr old nephew for five days (I was a rent-a-mom while his parents were out of town), and he was exactly the same.

I nick-named him the "little know-it-all" always telling why his 10 month old sister was crying is because she "didn't like me" and telling me what to do. *Sigh*

Love it! Girls have such little attitudes, right? My 18 months old is already giving me sass! Your daughter is a doll. So funny she already loves Hannah Montana, my 18 month old already loves Taylor Swift and whines until I turn in on it the car!

Ok, I totally had to laugh. I know it's probably not funny when you're actually faced with this kind of sass, but seriously! She's so cute and insistent. Too much!

Also? Mine is only 16 months but I know you've been stopping by my blog and I'm betting you're nodding your head in memories. Mine is gonna be a sassy pants FOR SURE!

She is too much! You're butting heads at age 5, so I can only imagine what's in store for you during the teen years. LOL!!!

Heather said...

I feel like this sometimes already with Christian (and he's only 18 months!!)! She is so cute though!

Joby, Julie, Cru and Sage said...

Ha! I love that! I wonder if thats a girl thing. I already feel like my little girl is super sassy and shes only 9 months

Verena said...

Lily is so cute! You know, my husband is most of the time calling me when the kids aren´t listening.

Candace @ Candace Creations said...
