Week 238- bribing, brushing your teeth and being the boss...

 Thomas has started to string a sentence together.

By a sentence I mean  ‘no thank you’

Which he uses with growing frequency.

‘Shall we get you in the bath?’

‘No thank you.’

‘Do you want to brush your teeth now?’

‘No thank you.’

‘Time for bed?’

‘No thank you.’

‘Can you eat one thing on your plate, just one thing? I genuinely don’t care if it’s a single baked bean, but seriously, you NEED TO EAT SOMETHING.’

‘No thank you.’

So that’s a bit annoying.

Only made worse by his other phrase.

Which is ‘go away.’

HE’S NEARLY TWO FOR FUCKS SAKE!

How is it that someone so titchy is totally the boss of me?

I know the job of a parent is to guide and support and protect and blah blah blah…

But actually I just want him to like me and think I’m the coolest person in the entire world.

IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?

So. I can either be patient. Wait for him to learn some more words, preferably slightly more positive ones.

But in the words of the little guy himself.

No thank you.

I will, instead resort to the age-old tactic of bribery.

I will mainline him with Bear Yoyos and Pom-Bears until he starts saying ‘yes please!’

  1. it is so funny the things they learn to say. I heard my daughter who has just turned 4 and is the most delightful little girl say to her biggest brother 'put unicorn back or i'll punch you in the face!" I couldn't believe my ears - but as she probably picked up language like that from him saying it to middle child, then it probably serves him right. x
