When my daughter and I are having a pleasant time and then, BAM, she goes into whiny cry mode. Today she was going on and on about how I am "never going to get" her a puppy (probably true, btw). And, "You should have never had a kid," "You never play with me" (we played dodge-ball-tag-hide-and-seek just this morning!), "You just want to be alone" and so on.
Argh child! Please--can't we just have a nice time without the meltdown!?
I did realize when we got home that she was very hungry. After she ate, I said, "Feel better now?" "Yeah, I was just hungry."
Still, she really knows what to say to make me feel bad... Last night it was, "You think I'm stupid!"
