Do I have a CHOICE???

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just like a lot of other kids, our little one here wants our full attention everytime she wants to show us something. It can be a dance she just saw on TV or a song she heard from her shows or a joke she read in one of her books...she wants us to be paying attention all the time.

Since that's not always possible, I would sometimes pretend that I'm listening to her. It worked for a while but she has gotten smarter because after she said something now she would ask me what she 'actually' said. Yep, she would ask me to REPEAT what she said! Something that I used to do to my students who were not listening during my lectures.

During the weekends, I am somewhat given a break because she has Dad to bother as well. But on the weekdays, it's all ME!! Hay....

Anyway, her favorite intro is: Can I show you a dance? or Can I show you a song? or Can I tell you a joke??? Since she would ask me these questions maybe 20x/day, I recently, I started asking her: Do I have a choice???

Can you guess what her reply is????

Of course you have a choice!!! And your choice is a YES!!!

Really?? I thought there should at least be 2 choices! Hmmm....

Hahaha! What a funny post.

I agree with the people above, your little one is smart hehehe. She should be a lawyer or teacher since she's good in winning arguments hehehe.

How does it feel to be a student again? Repeat what I said, that's hilarious hehehe.

this is a very familiar situation sis...my li'l icko will even hold my face if he wants to stress his points...most of the time he will call my attention and want my eyes focus on him only..

kids are becoming more and more assertive or is it demanding ???♥♥♥

That was such a cute story! Kids these days are just so sharp, witty and smart -- and they say the cutest things! I am a work at home mom and my kids are my inspiration. Your story also inspires me to do better and to do more. :) I am also a pinay by the way, living in Los Angeles, and I love connecting with other Pinay WAHM's.

Mine just started on hugging both of my legs if I don't pick her up or just simply wants attention. so I can't go anywhere and no choice but to pick her up.

Haay, buhay nga naman oo as mommy.
