10 Arguments You Shouldn’t Have With Your 3-Year-Old

I can't stand it.Louis CK is probably one of the funniest people in the world. I kid you not. I just listened to a bit about a morning with his 3-year-old girl and I had tears streaming down my face.

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
    How to pronounce a word.
    "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
    Space/time contiuum
    "But I already poured it."
    "PUT IT BACK!"
    "But it's the cereal."
    (Screams. Throws cereal on the floor.)
  • The names of things. 4 of 10
    The names of things.
    Listen to
    Louis CK for clarification on this one.
  • Getting up for the day. 5 of 10
    Getting up for the day.
    You 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
    The day of the week.
    "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
    Other bodily functions
    "Do you have to poop?"
    "Well, then whose gas is that?"
    "It's yours."
  • Denial of sugar 10 of 10
    Denial of sugar
    "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).
