10 Arguments You Shouldn’t Have With Your 3-Year-OldNaomi Odes
He is also dead right. Arguing with a 3 year-old on any issue is totally pointless. If you know what’s good for you, just agree that the sky is brown and not blue and MOVE ON.
I love my 3-year-old to bits. Here’s a whole post on reasons why, but here are 10 arguments I definitely do NOT want to have with him (again).
Although, I probably will anyway, because, you know… I never learn. So here goes:
How to pronounce a word. 1 of 10"Lehyow"
"That is NOT right. Stop saying that.I hate you!"
Wearing certain pieces of clothing. 2 of 10"But, it's raining...oh, forget it."
Space/time contiuum 3 of 10"I WANNA POUR THE MILK!"
"But I already poured it."
"PUT IT BACK!"
"But it's already...in the cereal."
(Screams. Throws cereal on the floor.)
The names of things. 4 of 10Listen to
Louis CK for clarification on this one.
Getting up for the day. 5 of 10You will always lose this one. Even if YOU revert to three-year-old behavior.
Yeah. I tried that.
The day of the week. 6 of 10"It is NOT Friday. It's Tuesday. Stop saying that, Mommy. You're hurting my feelings."
Outfit selection 7 of 10"Are you sure you want to wear BOTH plaids?"
"I'm never getting dressed ever, ever, EVER again."
Bodily functions 8 of 10"Do you have to pee?"
Other bodily functions 9 of 10"Do you have to poop?"
"Well, then whose gas is that?"
Denial of sugar 10 of 10"We are out of Z-bars, do you want some string cheese instead?"
(Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp...SLAM!)
Also, PLEASE, I beg you, listen to the Louis CK bit, but be warned: THERE IS A SH*TLOAD OF cursing in it, so depending on your work environment, it may not be appropriate (Like if you are a kindergarten teacher, for example).
