Who knew that my 2 and a half year old could possess so much sass! I mean, some of the things that come out of her mouth, make my jaw drop and leave me speechless. Like how does a 2 year old know what that means and how to use it in the correct sentence?!
On top of being extremely sassy, she’s very independent and that is an… interesting combination… She wants to do everything herself, unless she can’t reach something, but sometimes even then, she’ll still try to do it herself by climbing or pushing a chair over to what she wants to get. If you try and help her with something she doesn’t want your help with, she’ll say, “No! I don’t want your help!! I wanna do it! Get away!”
She’s not afraid to tell you what she thinks or tell you that you’re being to loud. The other day, I was talking on the phone and apparently, I was talking too loud…
Her: Mama, SHHHH! Daddy sleepin!
Me: Daddy is at work, nice try.
Her: Oh… Shhhhh! Brother sleepin!
Me: Averie, brother isn’t here either…
Her: Papa sleepin…?
Me: Nope! He’s at work too!
Her: UGH! Mama! Max sleepin! SHHHH!!
Max is her toy dog… She won that round. She knew her toy dog was in the house and what kind of mom would I be if I told her that her toy isn’t alive?
A few weeks ago, Averie asked for her yogurt and her sister wanted one too, but there was only one left. I told Lanaia that I was going to split it between the two of them….
Averie: You’re naughty. That’s MY yogurt! Not yours!
Lanaia: Averie, that’s not nice, I’m not naughty! You have to share it, Averie!
Averie: Nope! It’s mine, not yours! Mine, mine, mine!
Normally, Averie has no problems sharing food with her sister, but this yogurt was in fact Averie’s yogurt and boy did she know it.
Very rarely do I ever have problems getting Averie to take a bath, but sometimes she tests me about it. I’ll tell her that it’s bath time and she’ll say, ” I not dirty, Mama! See! I clean!” Then runs away from me.
Averie is real big on taking things that aren’t hers and she knows they aren’t hers. When you try to get what she took back, she runs. When you have cornered, she throws the thing she stole and then takes off running again while you retrieve the thing she threw. The entire time, she laughs…
Please tell me that my child isn’t the only one with this level of sassiness. Tell me I’m not alone!
