So this isn't really a question I'm just irritated with his response. All day today my son has been downright difficult to deal with. It's Friday, he had school, and being tired is the issue here and I know that. But his little stubborn butt has been in and out of time out all day for telling me no when asked to do things, or saying "duh" and rolling his eyes, our new way of saying no. Earlier I asked him if he would bring me a glass of water, kind of more jokingly then serious, and to my shock he was like sure mom and brought me water! 2 minutes later I asked him to put his swords away before moving onto his cars and he immediately flopped on the ground like a dying fish and acted as if I had commanded him to cut off his fingers. Fast forward about 2 hours and I asked if he'd place my bowl on the counter for me while I picked up other things so the dog wouldn't get to it and he goes "yes my queen" which to him and I isn't disrespectful in any way, he got it from a movie. Why will his stubborn monkey butt do things for me that I don't actually care about since I am capable of moving my own dish and getting water, but when I want him to pick up his toys, or get his shoes on, or flush the toilet after peeing, its a 20 minute battle! Sometimes I just wonder how that tired little mind of his works :) anyone else ever have this same situation?
