My almost 5-yo baby girl has a very bad habit lately. She has learned to answer me back, in a curt way that is!
Example of how she likes to answer me back…
After umpteen times asking her to go to the bathroom to pee, I finally blew my top.
Me – go and wee wee right now!
Cass ignored me…
Me – if you get another UTI, I will dump you in the hospital and won’t take care of you!
Cass – SO??
Me – So you will suffer in the hospital alone!
Cass – I DON’T CARE!
I wonder where she has learned that from — the smug, rude way of answering back!!
Yesterday evening after she has answered me back rudely, I was really pissed off with this rascal. After dinner…
Cass – mummy, I am still hungry
Me – SO?
Cass – I want to eat biscuits
Me – I DON’T CARE!
Cass – why are you talking like this?
Me – that’s how you answer me. Do you like it huh??
Cass – NO…
Me – don’t talk like that to me again, you hear me? Say SORRY now!
Cass – I am sorry mummy, I am sorry mummy, I am sorry mummy…. and she went on and on babbling apologies till I asked her to shut up lol!
A typical sight if we go shopping after 9pm…
