Get My Name Out Your Mouf

20 Jan

So I’ve got a mouthy 6 year old kid.  Anyone else?  Anyone?  Because I’m feeling like a tribe of one over here with this kid.  If I hear another “This too shall pass”, I’m liable to punch a fool OWT.  Now here’s the thing.  She’s golden at school.  When she brings home her monthly “Stellar Behavior” certificates, I put them in the bathroom to use for toilet paper.  Because that’s normal, right?  Be good at school, satanic at home.

For the record, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill mouthing off.  It’s psychological warfare.  Last night she told me I should’ve thought long and hard before having kids.  Five seconds later, she’s flitting through the den….nekkid….with paper wings scotch-taped to her back talking about how she was a baby angel.  In a diaper.

Whatever, man.  Here’s her latest tactic.  She’ll sit there and listen to me rant and rave…wait a few seconds….then bust out singing Kelly Clarkson’s “Mr. Know It All”.  Loudly.  And she knows every single word and riff.  Here’s the video in case you’ve never heard the song.  Now picture a 6 year old singing it to your face.  What would YOU do?  Huh?  What?!

    She is psychological terrorist. I would run to the nearest ball pool and hide until she went away.

    Maybe you should try borrowing another child for a weekend. That way she is not the only child in the house and has to wait her turn for some attention. A child much younger and needier.

    Ouch. Nope.

    Big mouth boys in this ring.

    Eighteen years of it sister!

    Umm. Ideas. Let’s see. I’m thinking about my five year old niece. If she pulled that trick on me (which she might,) I would be tempted to, ummm.

    Suspend her right to touch my little collectibles on my special shelf until she listens to 15 minutes of my killer Merchant mojo.

    Using the plastic Mic that *I* bought her. Hang in there. You’re the Queen, she is but a princess…let her know!
