Don't ever try to argue with a 3 year old. You can't win-and even if you DO win-it feels like you lost.
I show SweetCheeks this cute little picture of herself on a monkey. It was taken in one of the "countries" at Epcot Center. "Look how cute you look riding on that monkey", I tell her. "Isss NOT a muhnkey, Nana". "It's not?" I ask. "NO! Isss NOT a muhnkey." Well, then, I want to know WHAT it is~cuz it sure looks like a monkey to me!
"Das a pony rhide I wus on", she informs me. "Yes, but SweetCheeks. it's not a pony~it's a monkey ride." She gives me one of those looks that she reserves for idiots (and Nana). "Nana, das a muhnkey powny and it dussn't go enyplwace cus isss just pretent so's iss not even a rweal rwide! So, I wusn't rweally rwiding it I wus juss sitten onit~" Of course you were-what made me think you were riding that baboon in the first place?
I love three year old logic. It makes so much sense to her. I can't wait until she gets to school and the teacher tells her to take a seat. I can hear her now~"NEAVAH! (Her most favorite word to use right now- NEVER-or as she says NEAVAH) Iss not a seet-iss a desk and I like shtanding!" What a charmer~That's my SweetCheeks!
