I will never understand toddlers. Babies – of course I don’t understand them … they can’t really communicate! (Okay, I’m just really bad at interpreting what babies want.) But toddlers … you’re supposed to start displaying logical behavior by now. Get with the program!
Example 1: You liked oranges yesterday. Today you asked for oranges. So … eat the damn orange I peeled and cut up for you! It is not “not good.”
Example 2: You are tired every day around noon. You take a nap every day around noon. Today you are tired, and it’s noon. Ergo, take a nap. Just fall asleep! Give in!
Example 3: Yesterday you used a fork to eat with. You did well and avoided becoming as messy as a pig. Today you have food to eat, and I gave you a fork, too. So … use the fork! Work with me here, kid!
