I naively thought that the *melodramatic, prone-to-hyperbole/exaggeration* stage would hit us when the kids became teenagers...
Our sweetness and spice (read Jekyll and Hyde) four year old is becoming quite the master of this stage, and it's usually in response to some oppressive request we may make of her, for example:
* we say "Pick up your toys please" - she says "It's impossible there's TOO many!!"
* we say "Time to get dressed" - she says "This is the WORST day ever!!"... (at 7am).
* we say "Eat your dinner" - she says "I can't, it's too TERRIBLE!!" (or 'spicy' or there's some minutia of a fleck in a spot of the food).
* we say "I can't hear you when you whine like that" - she says "You don't even LOVE me ever!!".
Let's just say this gal is a prime candidate for drama camp.
What are some classic phrases your kids have blasted you with?
Happy weekend'ing friends!
