Do All Kids Say That?

After reading this and talking to a couple of friends I am beginning to think is must be normal. Today Norah said to me, "You are a mean mommy! A mean, mean mommy!" Let me add that she had just hit Lucy and was sent to her room. So she shouted this as she walked upstairs. She went on to say, "I want a nice mommy, not a mean mommy! And I am NEVER playing with you again!"

As Nicole said, I am sure that this happen a number or times, but it is still not fun to hear your child say.

Now, after some needed alone time in her room, she seems to have gotten over it and decided she does want to play with me after all.

I think it is a theme of the age. Ry has told Matt and his teachers that I am the meanest mommy in the world. I asked why. It is because they are following my wishes and not letting him sleep for more than 30 minutes.... She will forget.
