Help Quick! She totally called my bluff! EDIT

Thank again ladies for all of your help!! 

So I got her to bag up all the puzzles. It was alllllll fun and games until I made her help me take them to the trash..then came the tears and "I don't want these to go to the dump!!!"

I told her that it was to late, and that she had a chance to clean up, but she didn't listen. So I got her to get on a chair, and help me throw the bad into our big outside trash can. { DH went out afterwards and put it in out trunk so I can go donate it }

When we came in, I sent her to her room. A few minutes later, I went and talked to her about listening and cleaning. I think she got it, but hey, she 3, almost 4 lol. I am sure I will have to remind her a few more times. 

Bright side, she did help me clean up her room! WOOT! 

 

Thanks again everyone! 

 

So my 3 year old daughter, 4 in 2 days, decided to play with all her wooden puzzles, and now has them scattered from one end of my living room to another.

Enter me. I tell her " Emma, clean up all these puzzles!"

She tells me yes ma'am..so I walk out and do some dishes..

I come back, puzzles are still on the floor..

I tell her "Emma, pick up these puzzles right now, or I am going to throw them all away!"

She looks me dead in the eye and says " Throw them away."

So I go grab a trash bag, and make her put all the puzzles in the trash...all the while she is laughing and giggling...

She is currently gathering other toys that she wants to go to the "dump"...

WHAT DO I DO?! Those puzzles where expensive! She is totally calling me out!!!!

If you're tired of others looking down on you, grow the hell up.

 I would throw them away, I would be damned if a kid was that entitled and disrespectful to me!

Put them in the trunk of the car for a few days, let her think you really threw them out.

You put them away for a while. Somewhere she won't find them. Then in a few days she can start to earn them back.
