Preschool Diaries: Conversations With My Daughter.

To a preschooler, the color of your shirt identifies you.

“I don’t like the brown boy, but the black boy is nice.”
Or

“The red girl is very mean, but the yellow girl is my friend.”
THAT, Folks, is how racism starts.


Things my 3 yr old daughter has said recently
While pushing her on the swingset:
Her: “I’m going to tell you 4 questions.”
Me: “I think you mean ‘ask’ me 4 questions.”
Her: “No! I mean TELL you 4 questions!”
Me: “I don’t think you get how questions work.”
(For the record, she followed this by telling me some long drawn out story about something to do with her green flipflops.)

Over the lunch table: 
Her: “I’m ugly!”
Me: “WHAT? NO you are not. You are beautiful.”
Her: “No, I’m ugly!”
Me: “Who said that?! Tell me and I’ll beat them up!”
Her:  “I said it!”
Me: “You are NOT ugly!”
Her: “I’m Ugly! And I’m PROUD!”

Leaving McDonalds drive-thru:
Her: “Can you give me my food?  I’m hungry.”
Me: “No honey, we are going to wait until we get home to eat.” (It's not even 2 miles)
Her: “I’m hungry now, so hand me my food.”
Me: “Nope. You can have your food when we get home.”
Her: “No, I can have my food now.”
Me: “No you can’t”
Her: “Yes I can.”
Me: “I’m not giving you your food right now.”
Her: “Just hand it back to me!”
Me:  “No!”
Her: “YES!”
Further on down the road:
Her: “Let’s get ice cream.”
Me: “No. You haven’t had lunch yet."
Her: “We can still stop for some.”
Me: “No we can’t.”
Her: "Yes we can!”
Me: “Do you HAVE to disagree with everything I say?”
Her: “YES!!!”
Me: “You’re just like you mother.”

That girl has you whipped already. She and your wife have their heads screwed on. Two ladies equals twelve boys. Get used to it. :)

I think she has more of her dad in her than dad is willing to admit. How do you like talking to yourself?

Sounds like my daughter. God help you. It gets worse. Much, much worse.

Just what I like to see! Another young girl who's growing up to be a strong woman and easily confuses men!
