Hot Chocolate... What is Half... and Lying...
This is probably the silliest thing ever posted, but here it goes.
This morning DD asks me for some Hot Cocoa. I say sure, go ahead. She gets her stool to get it down. DH comes in, says "what are you doing". She tells him, he says he'll get it for her (I put it up too high and had forgotten). He looks in the box, says "where's the half from yesterday" and she says, "I used the whole thing". He says "why" and she says "because I forgot what half was".
ok. we do the hot cocoa in half all the time because she won't drink a full cup and she likes a ton of milk in it. She knows measurements and helps me bake all the time. WTH? So I say, DD, you know what half is. and she says she forgot.
Now... this is silly, I know. But I can't help but think DD is just testing DH. I explained to her she needs to ask if she doesn't know, not just go ahead and do what she wants.
She gets her whiny, crying face on and then it's just hard for me because that just drives me crazy. I absolutely hate the whiny face.
And then DH walks out of the room and I'm left holding... well... the *whole* bag, so to speak.
So we talk, she asks to go play in her room, I tell her to get her stuff from the living room first, she does, and cleans her room, and puts away her laundry without being asked. Do I give her the hot cocoa? Do I get the lamp? I just want to throw something at him!!!
