Toddler logic #2

The Toddler has an answer to e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!
I think she is smarter than a teen!
She knows that she is smarter than all of us!

- Yesterday in the car on the way to the shops:
"I want a sweet and a packet of chips."
"No, you can only have one!"
"I am big!" "I am growing to the roof!"
"No!"
"My dad says yes!"

- While trying to get her to sleep in her bed:
"I want to go downstairs"
"No, you have to sleep now!"
"My legs are hurting! I have to go downstairs!"
"No!"
"My dad says yes!"

- When she gets stuck in whining/tantrum mode, crying for something, I try to distract her.
(It used to work!)
"Look there!" "Watch that man!"
"L-O-U-D-E-R SCREAM! (She's onto me!)

- "Please, eat a bite from your food!"
"No, my tummy is not rumbling!"
"Then you won't be able to eat the pudding as well?"
"There IS space for pudding! Feel here." while lifting up her clothes to show me her stomach.

- When she is with her dad: "My mom says yes!"

And while reading this I realised her arguments must have worked, because she got the packet of chips and the sweet.
She got to go downstairs again as well last night!


We are in serious trouble...
