“Eat The Cake, or Go in Time Out!”

What the…?! Yeah. I actually had to say this to my three year old. It went like this:

Hal: I want cake!
Me: You gonna eat it this time? I don’t want to throw out more food.
Hal :YEAH!!!
Me: (gives Haley cake)
Hal: I don’t want this!
Me: (frustrated) ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! You wanted the damn cake, eat it!
Hal: NO.
Me: EAT THAT CAKE OR YOU’RE GOING IN TIME OUT!!”

I was laughing inside thinking about how absurd the entire thing was. I’m pretty sure this kid just says no to be obstinate. I mean, I’m sure she is, BUT HOLY CRAP.

Seeing as how I am here today, as are plenty of people older than 3, I am sure that SOMEHOW these kids are living though this, so mine will too.

Anyone? Suggestions? Tips/tricks?
