Everytime I say something to Reilly that he does not want to hear I get the “YOU ARE MEAN” speech. Tonight I told him he couldn’t have dessert because he said he didn’t feel well, so I offered him a banana. His response: “You are NOT my best friend.”
I think I’m beginning to learn that I need to get a thick skin. Kids are going to say things that they don’t mean or realize how much they are hurting someone else’s feelings. It brings back “fond” memories of when I said things to my parents that were similar in tone… ugh. I don’t like this trait of a four-year old.
