Say what?


After what I would like to call a stressful day of no listening, misbehaving and no napping (for the second day in a row), #1 and I “had a little talk.”

After our talk, we worked on repeating what she was going to do in order to make sure it sunk in:

Me: “Repeat after me: ‘I am going to be a good girl.'”
#1: “I am going to be a good girl.”

Me: “I will listen to mommy and daddy.”
#1: “I will listen to mommy and daddy.”

And a couple more…then

Me: “I will do what mommy and daddy tell me to do.”
#1: “I will tell mommy and daddy what to do.”

Hmmmm….not quite what I was hoping for.

And, if you doubt her sassiness..take a look!

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one dealing with this issue. Lately, K will act like she is listening then start laughing in ur face while you are scolding her. Great times isn't it. Hang in there, it has to get better.

  2. I am telling you I believe everyone who says that the 3's are worse than the 2's. SO TRUE!

  3. Hang in there will get a little worse before it gets better…BUT, it does get better! LOL
    Oh the things kids say!

  4. Isn't she a little young to be sassy? Or is it just me being forgetful in my old age. I know that sassiness comes in abundance later on (as I get my fair share from my 7 and 11 yr olds ;o)

  5. I've heard that about those fiery redheads. 😉

  6. I love Izzy! Sass or not I just wanna squeeze her.

  7. She's thrown down the gauntlet, hasn't she….? good luck!

  8. This is the part where I tell you it all gets better with age.
    Um, sorry… I can' tell you that.
    But I will wish you luck, lots of luck.
    You are gonna need it.

    Would it help to tell you that she sure is cute when she is sassy?
    Yeah…you already knew that!

  9. Hmmm….we've definitely got more than enough of that sort of thing here!
    However, I actually like the no nap days….because it means that he's going to fall asleep easy at night!

  10. Oh my…I'm sorry but I'm laughing just thinking forward about 12 years. Yeehah!

  11. Ah…the sassy-ness. I know it well. Poor Mommy. 🙁

  12. Oh, that Izzy is too funny!!

    Loving all the sassiness in the picture, too 🙂

    I hope tomorrow…or next week…is much better for you, Krystyn!

  13. She could try out for "Annie" you know… She was pretty sassy too! ; )

  14. Oh my, that's too funny! I can totally see her saying that! Look at that mischievous face!

  15. The Gerster Family says:

    oh dear! I'm just starting to get these little attitudes from Mia. Thanks for the heads up!

  16. First, I totally agree with the comment three's can be worse than two's, they were here. At four, we deal with sassiness pretty much daily. It's like they totally forget from day to day the little talks afterward.

  17. Gotta love the 'tude! My sister used to tell off my Mom with her hands on her hips…at 3.

  18. sounds like she has it right to me honey 🙂

    sorry for another long day – hoping for sunshine and unicorns tomorrow and the next day and the next.

  19. I'm sure glad that there are other people out there with kids that have sass and don't listen. The kids I nanny for play that game for me every once in a while. It annoys the heck outta me!! Timeout and those kids are best friends right now. Hope things get better for you!!

    Love, Mere

  20. AWww ! LOL. That's too freakin' cute! I bet you didn't think so at the time though, huh? 😛

  21. Ha! she is such a smarty pants. And sooo stinkin' cute with that curly red hair.

  22. Sparkette says:

    Oh goodness. She looks a little sassy. Good thing she can't see me giggle about her sassiness.

  23. How funny, she has her own interpretation of your talks 🙂
    I love her curls, they are adorable 🙂

  24. Aah! My son is the same way. Who would've thought a little boy would be so sassy? Not me.

  25. I think the 3's are definitely worse than the 2's… that stare!!

    Chandler is either the sweetest child ever or she is a monster….not much in between.

  26. HA HA! Her last comment cracked me up….sassy is right! But still so cute. 😉

  27. No nap for two days, the worst.

    Hoping she decided to finally take one, because an overtired preschooler is no fun at all 🙂

  28. This sounds like my WEEK. Seriously. My kids have been nasty nasty nasty – like I want to put them out on the lawn with a For Sale sign on them, nasty. Perhaps it has to do with my "condition" but seriously…

    Hang in there! It surely can't get any worse! At least that's what I'm saying. 🙂

  29. Kids definitely have their sassy moments. I had mine.

    It will get better! My mom didn't put up that at all.
